MENU BAR IS GONE...PUFF, GONE


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.

If all else fails, try rebooting the PC.

How to make the taskbar reappear when it disappears in Windows


Sometimes on a computer running Windows, an application will crash or an unstable process will lock up the system, and out of nowhere the taskbar that runs across the bottom of the screen will disappear. The rest of the desktop and all of your icons will probably still be visible -- it's only the taskbar that is gone. Without the taskbar, you can't access the Start menu or view the open programs in your system notification tray.

To get your taskbar and Start menu back without shutting down your computer, hit <CTRL><ALT><Delete> and then (depending on the version of Windows that you are running) choose the appropriate option to open the Task Manager. (In Windows XP Professional, for example, there is a button labeled "Task Manager".) When the Task Manager window appears, select File from the menu bar and then from the drop down menu click on "New Task (Run)". Type "explorer.exe" into the text bar and hit <Enter>. Windows will sort of "reset" itself, and the taskbar and Start button will reappear. (This may take a minute.)

Whatever caused the system to become unstable in the first place could easily happen again, so at this point it's a good idea to save any unsaved data, close all open applications, and then shut down and reboot your computer. If the same problem happens again, make a note of which programs you were running when it occurred, as it may be a resource conflict or compatibility issue that's causing the problem.

Get back the Quick Launch bar Windows 7's new taskbar functions as a program...


Get back the Quick Launch bar Windows 7's new taskbar functions as a program launcher as well as task switcher. As a result, the old Quick Launch bar, the area on the left side of the taskbar that contained shortcuts for frequently used programs, has been banished. However, if you really miss the little applet, you can add it back. Here's how to do it:

1. Right-click the taskbar and choose Toolbars --> New Toolbar.

2 . You'll be asked to select a folder for where the new toolbar should live. In the Folder text box at the bottom of the dialog box, enter this text:
%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
After you do that, click Select Folder. A link for the Quick Launch bar will be added to the taskbar. It will be on the right of the taskbar, just to the left of the Notification area.

It's not particularly useful docked all the way to the right with no application icons showing, so we're going to have to do a bit of work on it to make it useful. Right-click the taskbar and, in the pop-up menu, remove the check next to "Lock the taskbar." Now right-click Quick Launch and remove the checks next to Show Text and Show Title.

Once you've done that, drag the vertical triple dotted line next to the Quick Launch bar to the left until you expose its icons. To prevent further changes, right-click the taskbar and check Lock the taskbar.

You can now use the Quick Launch bar as you could in Windows XP and Vista, including adding icons to it and deleting them.

My quick launch button don't work


It probably got moved or somthing. What you do is go through your programs until you find the one that you want, right click it and send to taskbar. If you do not find that, then send to desktop and then drag it to the task bar. Delete the malfunctioning icon.

Start manu is set up on the top right in my computar how to take it back to bottum left or it's original position?


LOL... my dad calls with these question all the time...

WindowsXP? or Vista.. not much difference...

Right click on the start bar somewhere where there are no icon or boxes with programs.

if the "lock task bar" is checked (I assume it is not since it moved) uncheck it.

now hold down the left mouse button on the bar, again where there are no icons etc, and drag it where you want it.

Now Right click it and check the 'lock task bar'

Peace,

Dear Sirs I have just insalled the SimpleCenter media but I do not want the icon to automatically load onto the task bar on the right hand side,although I would like the shortcut to remain. I can delete...


Hello,

You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

Click start, than click run. In this box type "msconfig" without quotes.
You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.

Regards,
Sammy
On Top of the window click startup
