Move task bar to bottom of page

The desktop screenshot might need reducing

Click start "Control Panel."

Click "Display" and then select the Settings tab in the Display Properties window.

Use the slider bar under in the screen resolution section of the applet to change the resolution and click "Apply."

The screen repaints at the new resolution.

Click "Yes" to keep the resolution, or answer "No" at the prompt to revert to the original settings.

The taskbar is a central user interface component within the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system.

Located along the bottom of the screen by default, it includes the "Start" button, provides one-click access to all open programs and contains a collection of utility icons and the system clock in a section called the Notification Area.

Windows 2000 gives you the ability to adjust the behavior of the taskbar in several ways.

After you know where to find the proper menu item, performing this task takes only a few clicks.

Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar and select "Properties."

Click the "General" tab located along the top of the resulting dialog box.

Check the Always on Top box if you want the taskbar to appear above all other items on your screen.

Check the Auto Hide box if you want the taskbar to disappear into the bottom of the screen when you move the cursor away from the taskbar.

Check the Show Small Icons in Start Menu box if you want to enable this behavior.

Check the Show Clock box to show the system clock within the Notification Area at the right edge of the taskbar.

Check the Personalized Menus box if you want the "Start" menu to show the items you use regularly and hide the items you don't.

Click "OK" to confirm your changes.

They take effect immediately.

Hope this helps

I don't see my folders on my external hard disk. When I scan the disk for viruses I can see my folders while they are scanned. When I add new folders to it they don't disappear.

It is due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, that is why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.
It would show the hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset.
Dolwnload iReset and drag and drop the files/ folders on to its window to fix.

Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it. As long the the virus is there on you PC, you cannot get it fixed. However, if new folders don't disappear, it is likely that you would be able to fix the issue.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Does anyone know how to add the pc beep slider back to the master volume properties? it's disappeared as an option.

1.Go to control panel>sound and audio devices>on the tab of device volume , click advanced. You will see sliders (master volume window), go to options>properties>tick the "PC Beep" to make it appears in volume control. Now just unmute it

2.If this doesnot work,try this
Control Panel. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Properties, then the Sounds tab.
Changing the Sound scheme to Windows Default should get it back to normal. If it’s already on Windows Default, you can try setting it to No Sounds, click Apply, then set it back to Windows Default and Apply again.
If that fails, I think you’d have to reinstall the sound drivers.
