Re: It was suggested that I find my task bar in order to...
Probably you just messed up the settings ...if you still can click on start ...just right click near the user name ..and properties will appear..click on it ..and you have the settings choice for both the task bar ..and the start menu ...I really hope you will handle it .. if not ..just try to make a system restore task ..and assuming that you no longer have the start ..just click on my computer ..than in the side task bar (left ) you will have tasks and other places...there look for control panel ..and click on it .. be sure the control panel is on the category view..(it has a task in the same left task bar) ..and in the category view click on performance and maintenance ...in this moment you have a second task in the left bar named system restore..click on it ...and follow instructions..choose to restore to an earlier point ...than choose one highlighted date in tha tab ...that you know for sure the computer was fine ...and proceed..If you are lucky and the system was not affected by another kinda virus...and is not a case for reinstallation...your system will restore itself after the reboot to an earlier setting stage ..

Right click (hit right mouse button) on task bar and click to lock task bar and uncheck hide task bar. If you cannot right click on time before it disappears move pointer to the bottom of screen and it should reappear. Than follow above steps. If all else fails restart computer clicking on the F8 key repeatedly until start menu comes up , choose safe mode and when the computer starts up your task bar should remain in place, follow above steps to unhindered it permanently and reboot the computer it will start back up in normal mode and your task bar should be "fixed"
Press ctrl+esc to see if the start menu pops up, if it does not then proceed by trying the following steps below.
Make sure explorer.exe is still running: Press ctrl+alt+delete to get into Task Manager and do File -> New Task -> explorer.exe -> OK
Otherwise check to see if your task bar is auto hiding: Move the cursor to all four edges of the screen in an attempt to locate the hiding task bar. If the task bar does pop up, right click on it and press properties. Proceed by unchecking Auto-hide the taskbar under the Taskbar tab and pressing Apply and OK.
Hello it could either be that you have shortened the task bar or its on auto hidden type CTRL + ESC that will bring up the start/task bar right click the task bar and check the settings make sure that auto hide is turned off and that the task bar is unlocked and resize it if you can.
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:
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.
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.
Try pressing the left Alt key alone. Does the menu bar appear? Try right-clicking the area where the menu bar is supposed to be. Try different spots around the upper part of the window, eventually you should see in the context menu an option to turn on the menu bar.
You will find that in control panel . firstly, click on start menu from there click on control panel and then click on sound amd audio devices after that you will find a pop up menu where you will find place volume icon on the task bar then click it to check it and click the apply and then ok. you will find it back on the task bar ok.
try using your menu key on your keyboard. its next to the Ctrl key, that will bring up your start menu which shuld also show the task bar. right click on the task bar and click on properties. make sure "auto hide Task bar is not checked. and lock task bar. you may also have lowered it below your view. try moving your mouse pointer down at the bottom of the screen and see if your pointer turns into an arrow., if it does hold the left mouse button and move it up untill your task bar shows.
mine does this with windows 7, right click on desktop and open 'personalize' then open 'taskbar and start menu' From here choose to move your taskbar location to the side of the screen and click apply. it should return, then just tell it to go back to the bottom.
It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.
