I am NOT making this up! Can anyone tell me how to fix this????
For some unknown reason, my taskbar ( I think that's what it's called?) has shifted itself from the bottom of my computer screen & is now a vertical strip on the rightside of my screen! Surprised Sort of chops up the end of my view! Surprised Confused
Why, oh why is this stuff happening?? But more importantly, how can I fix it?

Yours from Luddite Land,
Olga

Still can't fix it & I've gotta go. I really, really hope, when I log on later today, that someone can tell me how to fix this. It's probably basic, but I haven't a clue what to do. Confused

It's pretty basic. Click on the grayspace in the bar... not on any of the icons. Then drag the whole thing back to the bottom (where it was). Release the mousebutton, and it should stick.

(Btw it jumps kind of suddenly... it doesn't move gradually... so if you do it just a bit you may not think it's working, but keep going.)

(I've dealt with this one a lot because it's been one of the sozlet's favorite tricks on the old computer for quite a while now. I still don't know how she DOES it, but I learned how to UNdo it.)
