Where is my taskbar located?


Hi, the task bar is usually along the bottom of your screen and it has icons that you click on. You can also get a small window bottom right corner that you click on and this will open up.

How to move icons from left side to bottom of screen


On all windows apart from Windows 8, you drag them from the desktop (left hand side) to the bottom (taskbar) with the mouse.

If the taskbar gets full up the icons might disappear.
The double bar at the end of the taskbar must be moved to the right for more of the taskbar to appear.

Lost start button and icons on my toshiba lap top


Do you mean the taskbar along the bottom of the screen?
If you move your cursor to the bottom of the screen the taskbar should appear. Right click anywhere on the taskbar and click properties. In the properties window, on the taskbar tab, uncheck 'auto hide taskbar'.

On my Vista desktop, the start/taskbar shows up on the right side when it used to be along the bottom of the screen. why did it move and how can i get it back to the bottom?


First, right-click the taskbar. If "Lock the Taskbar" has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked. You can unlock it by clicking "Lock the Taskbar" again. Then, click an empty space on the taskbar, hold and drag the taskbar to one of the four edges of the desktop. When the taskbar is where you want it, release the mouse button.

The taskbar disppears. I have it locked so that it should always be on top of everything else but when it goes into hibernation and it restarted it disappears.


I'm had the same problem with my system. if the 'Start' button is still visible, so you can right-click that, select 'Properties' and change the TaskBar settings.select the 'Autohide the Taskbar' and applying that change will result in the Taskbar appearing again (at least when the mouse pointer is positioned by the Taskbar).


if the above one does not work a simple solution that will work:

1. Hit CTRL+ESC to show the Start menu.
2. Right click the menu at the bottom for Properties.
3. Select the Taskbar tab.
4. Check Autohide Taskbar and click the apply button.
5. Uncheck Autohide Taskbar and click the apply button once more.

Your taskbar should reappear when you've completed these 5 steps.

Please give this a try before messing with registry or recovering your machine!

If the taskbar does not show up when you press CTRL+ESC then explorer.exe may not be running. To correct this press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC which will bring up the task manager. Click File, New. Find explorer.exe and open it.


Go into Task Manager. Find explorer.exe and end the process. Restart explorer.exe. If your taskbar magically reappears, you've found the issue. Here are some other symptoms:

After a Windows Vista-based computer has been running for an extended period of time, the desktop screen may stop updating correctly. For example, you may experience any of the following symptoms: • Parts of the screen may go black. • Parts of the screen may become transparent. • The toolbar may disappear. • The toolbar may appear at the top of the screen instead of at the bottom of the screen.
If you add the GDI Objects column for the Explorer.exe process in the Task Manager console, you see that the GDI Objects column has reached the maximal number that is defined in the GDIProcessHandleQuota registry entry.

TASKBAR PROBLEM


*Right click the taskbar and make sure the "Lock the Taskbar" option is NOT ticked

click and hold a blank space of the taskbar and move the cursor to where you would like it to be sitting so if you would like it to run across the bottom of the screen move the cursor while still holding down to the bottom of the screen, this should make it look more like what it should :)

Thanks!
