Click "Yes" to keep the resolution, or answer "No" at the prompt to revert to the original settings.
The taskbar is a central user interface component within the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system.
Click start "Control Panel."
Click "Display" and then select the Settings tab in the Display Properties window.

Located along the bottom of the screen by default, it includes the "Start" button, provides one-click access to all open programs and contains a collection of utility icons and the system clock in a section called the Notification Area.
Windows 2000 gives you the ability to adjust the behavior of the taskbar in several ways.
After you know where to find the proper menu item, performing this task takes only a few clicks.
Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar and select "Properties."
Click the "General" tab located along the top of the resulting dialog box.
Check the Always on Top box if you want the taskbar to appear above all other items on your screen.
Check the Auto Hide box if you want the taskbar to disappear into the bottom of the screen when you move the cursor away from the taskbar.
Check the Show Small Icons in Start Menu box if you want to enable this behavior.
Check the Show Clock box to show the system clock within the Notification Area at the right edge of the taskbar.
Check the Personalized Menus box if you want the "Start" menu to show the items you use regularly and hide the items you don't.
Click "OK" to confirm your changes.
They take effect immediately.
Hope this helps
