How to move the Windows Taskbar from its default position or reset it to its default position
Move the task bar from the default position
- Click a blank portion of the taskbar.
- Hold down the primary mouse button, and then drag the mouse pointer to the place on the screen where you want the taskbar. For example, you may want the taskbar to be positioned vertically on the right side of your screen.
- After you move the mouse pointer to the position on your screen where you want the taskbar, release the mouse button.
- Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
- Double-click Taskbar and Start Menu
- On Windows ME click Advanced, and then make sure that there is a check mark beside Enable moving and resizing in the Start Menu and taskbar list under the Taskbar heading. If the check mark is not there, click the box to select this feature, click OK, and then close the Control Panel window. If the check mark is there, click Cancel, and then close the Control Panel window.
- On Windows XP and Windows Vista select the Taskbar tab and make sure that there is not a check mark beside Lock the Taskbar. If the check mark is there, click the box to unselect this feature, click OK, and then close the Control Panel window. If the check mark is not there, click Cancel, and then close the Control Panel window.
