Question about Microtek C893 18.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Task bar that should be on the bottom is on the left side

First the taskbar on the bottom was too high (about an inch) I tried putting the cursor on the line and dragging it down, but that didn't work. I don't know what I did, but now the whole taskbar is on the left side and I can't move it down where it should be. The start button is on the top left. The two thin lines that used to be to the right of the start icon is below the start button and then two more lines are below the icons usually to the right of the first two lines.
The icons for the local area connection, anti virus and safely remove hardware are now on the bottom left and a thin double line is above the icons for adobe and an internet icon.

How to lock the task bar when it does not showing on screen


It may be set to auto hide. Try moving your mouse cursor to the edge of the bottom screen. If it doesn't show up, try the other three edges of your screen.

Once located, right click on the task bar and choose "Properties" from the menu. On the window that pops up, simply uncheck the auto hide option. If the bar is already on the bottom edge, click on the "Lock the taskbar option." If not, drag the bar to the edge of the screen you prefer and then lock it.

Task bar at bottom with font size on it has gone


The task bar is an important part of the Windows experience. Not only does it contain a variety of information including what time it is and how much battery life is left it's the way most Windows users open programs and documents. As such, the task bar disappearing is a stressful thing, but fixing this problem on your own is possible.

Auto-Hide Sometimes you may think your task bar has disappeared, but it's really just been set to "auto-hide." Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and see if it pops up automatically. Then check all four sides of the screen. If the task bar was simply auto-hiding, disable this feature by right-clicking the task bar, clicking "Properties" and unchecking "Auto-hide the Taskbar." b> Reboot b> If your task bar disappears, and auto-hide isn't the culprit, the first thing you should do is reboot your computer this fixes the problems in most instances. Only one problem: because your task bar disappeared you can't access the "Start" menu in order to shut down the computer. Instead press "Alt," "Ctrl," and "Delete" at the same time and press "Restart" in the window that pops up after doing so. Your computer should restart, and in most cases your task bar should come back when it restarts. b> More Options b> If rebooting doesn't fix cause the task bar to reappear, your computer might have a problem starting explorer.exe, the program that displays the task bar and desktop icons in Windows. Press "Ctrl," "Shift," and "Esc" at the same time to bring up the System Manager. Then click "File," followed by "New Task (Run)" and type "explorer.exe" in the dialogue box that pops up. You now have your task bar and desktop icons back. Reboot to see if they stick around after rebooting. If not, repeat the process in the above paragraph. When you have you task bar back click "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Restore the computer to a time when everything was working fine by clicking that date on the calendar. Reboot to see if this fixes the problem. If none of this brought back your task bar permanently it may be time to run a repair install. Change My Task Bar b> In Windows operating systems, the taskbar shows your currently active windows and programs, shortcuts to your favorite programs, the time, your volume control, active programs and the "Start" button. You may want to change the taskbar so it has a different look or to customize it to suit your needs when using your computer. Windows XP users have fewer options than Windows Vista or Windows 7 users, but all operating system owners can make changes to the taskbar.

Right-click in your taskbar. Left-click on "Lock the taskbar" if it is currently checked. Otherwise, click back onto the taskbar. Click on any empty area of the taskbar. Drag the taskbar to the position (bottom, top, left or right side of the screen) you desire, and release it. Re the taskbar by moving your cursor to where the taskbar ends. Your cursor will change to a two-way arrow. Left-click and drag the taskbar until it reaches the you want. Move your cursor over the series of separator bumps between the Start button and the Quick Launch menu, and the Quick Launch menu and the active programs section of the taskbar, to alter the of the Quick Launch menu and the active programs area. Right-click the taskbar, and left-click on "Lock the taskbar" once you've completed the changes you wish to make. b> Change Taskbar Options b> Right-click on the taskbar, and left-click on "Properties." Modify the taskbar settings so that it appears the way you like. You can decide whether to show the Quick Launch menu (a series of icons for your most commonly used programs), to show thumbnails for your active programs in Windows 7 and Windows Vista and to group similar active programs, and to automatically hide the taskbar or to always have it on top of other windows. Click on the "Notification" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to modify the way the notification area to the far right appears. Stay on the taskbar tab in Windows XP. Hide inactive icons, and decide which information to show, including the clock or the volume, power and network icons in Windows 7 and Vista. Click on the "Customize" button to specify which programs or notifications should always show, never show or grow inactive with disuse. Click on the "Toolbars" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to specify which toolbars you wish to see in the taskbar. Your options will vary according to the programs you have installed on your computer but may include the Quick Launch, address bar and links toolbars. Click the "Apply" button, then "OK" once you have made the changes you desire. Hope this helps.

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.

THE TASK BAR APPEARS AT THE TOP OF THE WINDOW


First, make sure the taskbar is not locked. Right click the taskbar and make sure the is no check mark beside 'Lock the taskbar".

Now, point your cursor just beside the START button (outside the START orb and on the task bar), click and hold and now you can move it to the bottom of the window.

How do i get my start button on the left corner of my screen? it is at the top right now.


The Start Button is on one end of the "Taskbar"

Use your mouse to move the cursor anywhere on the task bar, click-and-hold, and drag the taskbar back down to the bottom of the screen.

If it won't move (you try to drag it but it's not going anywhere) then right-click on the task bar and un-check the menu item "Lock the Taskbar" then try again.

If this helps, hit the "thumbs-up" for me.

Asus notebook K501J Model. A blue wall at bottom of screen, about two inches high screen' .I cannot remove same. Also I cannot get the task at bottom of screen,


Try this:
Place your cursor at the top of the wide blue band. See if the cursor arrow changes to a 2-sided arrow. If if does, hold down the left button and move the cursor down until the screen is again normal.
Basically what you have done is to take part of the window and increase the size of the bar. This actually should be the taskbar, but it's way too large.

Cannot resize task and system tray toolbar


Resizing the task bar and quick launch bar can be frustrating.

- Move your mouse over the top edge of the taskbar until the cursor changes to arrows (vertical).
- While the cursor is an arrow, left-click and drag the top of the taskbar up.

You might also try to turn the clock off and on again.
- Right-click the task bar, then chose properties
- Uncheck "Show clock" (or check to turn it back on)

Hey, it's only the clock. Be glad you don't have BIG problems, right? :)))
