To adjust rotating display of laptop ,taskbar with all icons moves on different(bottom to top)


Step 1:
Has your Windows taskbar suddenly moved to the side of your desktop screen or even to the top? This can be very disruptive to your daily computing, which may mean a loss of productivity at work. Your taskbar could have moved because of a glitch in programming or an inadvertent mouse click while you were focused on something else. The latter is more common and is usually the result of an unlocked taskbar.

Older Windows Operating Systems Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista all utilize similar solutions for this problem. For the quickest route to returning the taskbar to the bottom of the screen, first place your mouse pointer over empty space on your taskbar (space not occupied by an icon or a button indicating an open program) and right-click. Look near the bottom of the menu that appears for the "Lock the Taskbar" listing, and make sure there is no check mark next to the listing. If there is a check mark, it means the taskbar is locked and cannot be moved, so click on the listing to deselect (and unlock) it. With your mouse pointer again over an empty space on the taskbar, click and hold the left mouse button and then move the mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen. When you release the left mouse button, your taskbar should have moved. As long as the taskbar is unlocked, you can also vary its height. Hold the mouse pointer over the upper edge of the taskbar until it becomes a double arrow (pointing up and down). Then click and hold while you drag the upper edge of the taskbar to the you desire. Once you have the taskbar where you want it, remember to lock it again by selecting the listing on the right-click taskbar menu.

Another option is to visit the Microsoft Windows website and download and run an automatic "Fix it" program, which should take care of programming issues. Windows 7
There are three options for moving the taskbar in the Windows 7 operating system. The first option involves right-clicking on an empty space in the taskbar and then navigating to the "Properties" menu (look near the center of the menu) to set the location of your taskbar on your screen. This menu also allows you to change or establish a number of other default settings relating to your Start menu and taskbar. The second option is exactly the same as the first process given for the Windows operating systems previously mentioned. And again, to prevent the format you have established from changing, lock the taskbar by right-clicking on an empty space of the taskbar and selecting "Lock the Taskbar" from the menu. The third option is a bit more involved and requires downloading registry files (files ending in ".reg"), saving them to your desktop and then double-clicking on them to merge them with your operating system. The files can be deleted after use.

Sidebar has suddenly moved to side affecting size of screen. How do I return it to bottom???


You are probably talking about the windows Task bar that normally resides at the bottom of the screen:
.
Two ways of moving this task ba, to top/bottom/letft/right position of the display:
  1. Move the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar, usually in the largest blank area towards the right, click and hold the right mouse button and drag the Task bar to the bottom of the screen.
  2. Go to the Task Bar 'Properties' (You can get this context menu by clicking the left mouse button after putting the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar) and change the 'Task bar location on screen' option.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Zoomed moving display while mouse is moving


You have screen zoom turned on. If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel please hold down CTRL and move your mouse wheel down to return to original screen size.

If you need more help go into System Preferences> Keyboard and mouse> Mouse Tab and at the bottom it will tell you the settings for Zooming, if you don't need it I suggest you turn it off.

Hope that helps!

Cursor and pages opening up off the right side of my desktop


This is a monitor setting. use the menu button on your monitor to shrink the screen size from side to side. The menu button usually toggles you through the settings and the + or - buttons adjust the settings.
This happens a lot if your on a small desk and bump your keyboard against a low sitting monitor.

My icons and tool bars are so big nothing I bring up fits on the screen.....I can make the internet smaller with the mouse wheel, but it shows in a very small space because of the very large tool bars....


Here are some tips to help you move around when you can't see other parts of the screen
Alt + Tab (hold down Alt and press tab) will move you between open windows
Tab will move you from button to button and to the file menu at the top
Shift + tab will move you back, for example if you hit the tab key one too many times
Alt + F4 will close the open window, if no window is selected it will bring up the shutdown computer screen
F5 will refresh a page on the Internet
F11 will switch between Full Screen mode and not full screen mode
So try getting to the "approved" window and then using tab to select it.

If you run the mouse up the side does a little arrow appear? If it does you can pull on that arrow, using the mouse and recenter your display. Try this first and if it doesnt work, get back to me.
