Need to move start button


You should be able to click anywhere on the taskbar (that is unoccupied by icons or links) and drag it back to the bottom.

To keep it from moving, you can right click on the taskbar and hit 'Lock Taskbar'

How to change orientation of monitor


I'm a little unclear of what you are asking.

1) Screen has turned on monitor?

Press the CTRL key, and ALT key down at the same time.
Now tap on the Left Side Arrow key, until the screen is oriented correctly again.

2) Screen on monitor has shifted left, right, top, or bottom?
Use the controls on the monitor to set it correctly again.

3) Using dual monitors?
Right-click on an empty space on your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on Settings.

The monitor 1 icon is supposed to be your Primary monitor.
The monitor 2 icon is the Secondary monitor.

Ordinarily the Primary monitor is on the LEFT side, and the Secondary monitor is on the RIGHT side.
Just as shown in the Settings window.

If you wish to move a monitor to the other side, go to the monitor icon you wish to move.

Put your mouse cursor on the monitor icon you wish to move.
Left-click, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now drag the monitor icon you wish to move, to the other side.

Not doing it for you?
Then post in a Comment with more exacting information, as what it is that you wish to do.

Desktop screen


try booting in safe mode and see if the screen displays properly.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.



Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the 1 inch black space then your video card might be going bad or you might have a virus infection. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok then your original monitor is bad.

Increase my font size


You did not specify your operating system.
For Windows XP
Go into your Control Panel by first clicking on the Start Button.
Then click on the Control Panel icon located in the right column of the Start Menu.
If your Start Menu is set to the Classic View, then begin by clicking on the Start Button.
Then click on Settings, then click on the Control Panel icon to open up the Control Panel.
Now, Double click on the Display icon to open up the Display Properties Window.
Then click on the Appearance tab at the top of the screen.
At the bottom left side of the screen you will see an area to change the Font Size:
Use your mouse to switch between normal, large and extra large according to your preference.
Then click on the OK button to save your changes and exit Display Properties window.
Windows XP will immediately adjust to your new Font Size without restarting your system.
Then close the Control Panel to return back to your Windows Session.

My desktop has no, desktop icons and no taskbar


Sounds like XP. Using the Start button select SETTINGs then select TASKBAR and START MENU.
Go to Start Menu and select CLASSIC. Now your familiar Icons will be on the screen.

If you want, on the first screen you can select AUTO HIDE. This will hide the bar at the bottom of the screen giving you more screen size program area. To access the bar just place your mouse on the bottom of the screen and it will come up.

The picture on my Compaq monitor shifted 1 inch to the left. There is a one inch black space on the right side. I have a HP Compaq d530 CMT


click menu button on monitor. you will see a series of Icons (or scroll through a series of Icons) and one will be a square with a smaller square inside it that is half inside the larger and half out. Navigate to that Icon. Use the + or - buttons to move the screen in either direction until it evens out. Use + or - button to navigate back to exit and and then press menu button to exit screen. Or, sometimes you simply push the menu button a second time. These 3 buttons will be on the bottom front of the monitor. Good luck

I HAVE A WINDOW XP HOME EDITION AND WHEN I START MY COMPUTER THE ONLY THING THAT COMES UP IS THE BACKGROUND. THERE ARE NO ICONS OR A BAR AT BOTTOM OF SCREEN.


the icons and the bar(task bar) at the bottom of the screen are enabled by the explorer.exe file

it starts automatically but in your case it is not starting

to start it when your computer starts and comes at the desktop, press alt+ctrl+delete button at the same time to bring up the task manager

when you do this a task manager shows up in a window

in task manager window click on file, it will be located on the top left portion on task manager

now click on "new task(run)"

this opens another window, in that window type
"explorer"
without the quotes "" and press enter
this will bring you icons and task bar at the bottom of the screen

How to turn off hourly chime on digital watch


If your no-name/no instructions watch has the chime function, try this to turn it off/on:
In regular time mode, hold down the reset button, while you hit the mode button. You should see something on the face appear or disappear. This could be the chime on/off signal. You will have to wait for the regular time to hit the hour to see if this works.
If you do the same but hit the start/stop button instead, the alarm should turn on/off.
The mystery is that you have to go to this third level of button combinations. Who knew these generic watches were this deep.
