Windows XP taskbar has "relocated itself"

Windows XP taskbar used to be located horizontally across the bottom of the screen and showed iconized windows screens.
It has "relocated" to a vertical position on the right side of the screen AND the iconized window screens do not show up anymore.
How do I return the taskbar to the bottom-of-screen position AND show the iconized windows screens?

Move task bar to bottom of page


The desktop screenshot might need reducing

Click start "Control Panel."


Click "Display" and then select the Settings tab in the Display Properties window.


Use the slider bar under in the screen resolution section of the applet to change the resolution and click "Apply."

The screen repaints at the new resolution.


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.


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

The taskbar is upside down and at the top of the screen


On Windows computers, you should have what is known as the taskbar. This is the gray strip that runs across the bottom of your computer and which displays icons for quickly accessing programs you frequently use. The taskbar also shows the "Start" menu, clock and icons for your Internet connections. Sometimes icons do not appear properly in the taskbar. This usually is because the computer is new and hasn't had icons placed in the taskbar manually, or because a default setting is off in the OS properties. Both are simple fixes.

1.Right-click the "Start" icon and select "Properties."

2.Select the "Taskbar" tab in the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" dialogue box.

3.Uncheck "Lock the taskbar" and "Auto-hide the taskbar." Check "Show Quick Launch." Since the Quick Launch box isn't available in some systems, you may need to right-click on the taskbar area, choose "Toolbars" and then select "Quick Launch."

4.Navigate to the programs you want to show on the taskbar through the "Start" menu or on your desktop. Right-click the program and drag it to the taskbar. Choose "Create shortcuts here" from the menu that appears. The icon for the program should appear in the taskbar.

My icon for the battery power monitor has dissapeared from my taskbar can you help me get it back please


Do you have Windows 7? If so, you can right-click on the bottom right corner of your desktop (try right-clicking the time/date), where the icons for volume control, wireless, battery, etc... should be and select Properties. You should then see a screen where you can turn on/off the icons/notifications for battery power (sometimes my volume control disappears and i have to do this.
Otherwise you can go here, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and you should find the same thing. Then just turn on your battery power icon/notifications.
Hope this helps.

Our toshiba laptop turns on but we only have our background pic with no programs on screen


you might have hidden your icons by accident. Try right-clicking and in Windows XP, "arrange by" and make sure there is a check-mark by "show desktop icons"
In Vista and Windows 7 rick-click select "view" and make sure that "show desktop icons" is checked.

If this does not help, make sure that Explorer is started (you should have the taskbar, start buttons, etc. in view of the screen. If not it might indicate a problem with windows itself.

In vista: taskbar does not show icons of opened files


it might be your taskbar is on auto hide try this



Show or hide the taskbar gl_icon_tip.png Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.
The taskbar is usually located at the bottom of your screen. It looks like this:
getopencontent.aspx?assetid=984f8561-57a1-4b9c-9f22-f0d8dddec294&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml Taskbar
You can hide the taskbar to create more space. If you don't see the taskbar anywhere on the screen, it might be hidden.
Hide allShow allHide all gl_arrow_down_static.gif To show the taskbar
• If the taskbar is hidden, point to where you last saw it to show it again. If you can't remember where you last saw it, try pointing to the bottom of the screen first, and then to the side or top of the screen, if necessary. You might need to move the pointer almost off the screen to show the taskbar.
gl_arrow_down_static.gif To hide the taskbar
1. Open Taskbar and Start Menu Properties by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Taskbar and Start Menu.
2. Clear the Lock the taskbar check box.
3. Select the Auto-hide the taskbar check box.
The taskbar is hidden from view. You can see it again by pointing to the place where you last saw it.
gl_arrow_down_static.gif To turn off auto-hide
1. Open Taskbar and Start Menu Properties by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Taskbar and Start Menu.

TASKBAR PROBLEM


*Right click the taskbar and make sure the "Lock the Taskbar" option is NOT ticked

click and hold a blank space of the taskbar and move the cursor to where you would like it to be sitting so if you would like it to run across the bottom of the screen move the cursor while still holding down to the bottom of the screen, this should make it look more like what it should :)

Thanks!
