    Steps to be taken for restoring taskbar back to the bottom part of desktop in Windows XP

    When I boot up my PC running on Windows XP yesterday, I found the taskbar is located at the left side of the desktop. I want to move it into the bottom part. What should I do for that?

    First of all, right click on the task bar and wait until a menu pop up on the screen. Navigate through that menu and find out ‘Lock the taskbar’ option. Check whether you can find a tick mark next to that option. If so, click on that option until the tick mark gets erased. Hover the mouse over the task bar and left click on the arrow visible on the taskbar. By pressing on that arrow, you can drag the taskbar to the bottom part. You can then lock the taskbar for by checking the ‘Lock the taskbar’ option.

    Re: Steps to be taken for restoring taskbar back to the bottom part of desktop in Windows XP

    To reset your taskbar to the default position, restart your computer in Safe mode. To start your computer in Safe mode, restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key after your computer completes the Power On Self Test (POST), and then choose Safe Mode from the Startup menu. The taskbar will reset to the default position after you reboot your computer.
    To move the taskbar from its default position along the bottom edge of the screen to any of the other three edges of the screen:
    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.
    If you are using Windows 98 or Windows Me and your taskbar does not move, make sure that the option to move the taskbar is enabled. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, make sure the Lock the Taskbar option is not enabled. To check the status of the taskbar:
    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.
    The taskbar can be docked on the left side, right side, top, or bottom of your screen. You cannot move the Start button or the Windows Orb from side to side on the taskbar.
