My Taskbar Moved – How Do I Get It Back?

Question: My taskbar has gone from the bottom of the screen and is now in the vertical position on the right-hand side of the screen.  The icons are in a block near the bottom and the Windows, Chrome and Firefox icons are at the top. How do I get them back to the original place, please?

Answer:  I finally figured this one out after losing my taskbar several times and it’s a simple solution. Right-click on your taskbar. You should get this window.


Select “Properties” and you’ll get the next window.


For “Taskbar location,” select “bottom.”  Once you have it back where you want it, right-click on the taskbar again. Select “Lock the taskbar” to to keep it from moving around again.

Hope that helps.
