Task bar consumes two rows at bottom of screen

The task bar at the bottom of the screen consumes two rows. The task bar is not locked. I have tried using the double arrow to drag the task bar down and then up again - the two rows remain. OS is XP Pro w/SP2. - Jim

Hi, try this to fix the problem. [right] click on the "Taskbar" select to open the "Properties" short-cut, next in the [Taskbar and Start Menu...] window, click on the Taskbar button, and [un-check] every box. Next, open the Toolbars window, and [un-check] every box, "Apply and OK changes." After you have finished doing so, "restart" the Computer. When you are back to the "Desktop window, open the Taskbar Properties again, and put a {Check mark in all the boxes of the items you want present, to view}. I hope that it works for you; thanks for using Fix'Ya, and if you find the time give a "rating" for the help, thanks again.

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.

Lenovo b640 model the tool bar is showing on the top but as is drag it on the bottom it is hide or not showing but it is showing on the right and left of the windows 7


Hi
Try right clicking on a part of the task bar and checking that the "Lock Task Bar" is not ticked in the menu that appears, untick it if it is. It shouldn't be as you can drag it to the left or right of the screen. Then click "Properties" and check that the "auto-hide task bar" is not ticked. Again it shouldn't be but untick if it is.
In these circumstances you should be able to drag the task bar to all four sides of the screen and it should remain visible at all times. If it is still not showing at the bottom of your screen, I would suspect that your graphics card is setup to show a larger screen than the actual screen can display, and you need to right click somewhere on the desk top and look at "Screen Resolution" (win7) to see what the settings are and what you can change them to to try and bring the task bar back into view when it is on the bottom.
Do any of your programmes lose their lower parts when viewed full screen?
On today's wide screen profile machines, I often find it better to have the task bar on the side. It takes a little getting used to at first, but after a while I found it more natural than at the bottom.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Tool bar moved t right and is large


Right click on the task bar (I assume you mean the bar that is typically at the bottom of your desktop?)
Make sure "Lock the Task bar" is not checked
Click on the border of the task bar
drag directly from where you clicked to the bottom
Adjust height accordingly

How to get the task bar to it natural size?


It is possible to make the task bar taller than it is by default, and this is the only way that I know of to change the size of the task bar, so I have to assume that you are asking how to take the task bar back down to the original "tallness." You would put your mouse cursor at the top of the task bar until it turns into a double-headed arrow, and then click down and drag the top edge toward the bottom of the screen until it is the normal height. If the task bar is locked, this cannot be done, so make sure it is unlocked by right-clicking on an empty spot on the task bar and make sure that "lock task bar" is not checked first.

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.

When I turn on my computer the icons and start programs row at the bottom of my computer do not come up. Just a few icons at the top of the screen. How do I get the start programs and lower icons back on...


Move your pointer to the bottom of the screen until it turns into an arrow. Click and hold left button and drag up. If you want, after the task bar is back up, you can right click on it and select LOCK THE TASKBAR. That way you can't accidentally move it down again.
