Taskbar on the side

  • I would like some advice please about why my taskbar which was the bottom of the desktop has decided to move to the righthand side of my desktop. My husband tried it tonight and I have had a go, but no luck. Any advice please. Thank you.

    Hi Wren

    Try draging (without releasing the button) on the taskbar and then dragging it to where ever you want it to appear (top, bottom, LHS or RHS)

  • Hi Jenny

    When you get it back in place right click on it and you should see the option to lock the taskbar

  • I tried dragging it ,but it only goes half way across the screen.

  • Hi Jenny,  

    It sounds as if your taskbar is locked for some reason, hence you can't drag it across a full screen. Try right clicking on the taskbar and see if "Lock the taskbar" is checked. If so uncheck it and try to drag the bar again to the position you want.

  • Jenny try clicking near to a corner so you only moving the mouse a short distance

  • Thank you Claire & Alan for your advice
