If the toolbar has moved from the bottom to either the
top or to the side of the screen. How do you put it back
on the bottom of the screen?

    Although by default the task bar appears on the bottom of the
    screen, it can be on any of the sides you prefer it on. To move
    it from any side to another, simply click on an unused part of it
    and drag it where you want it. Be sure to click *within* it, not
    on the edge; clicking on the edge and dragging will resize it

    If it won't move, it may be locked. In that case, right click on
    it and uncheck "Lock the taskbar," then try again.

    Right-click on the Taskbar and click on "Lock the Taskbar"
    to unlock it. Then use your mouse to place the mouse pointer
    on the Taskbar, press the left mouse key and drag the Taskbar
    to the bottom of the desktop screen. Afterward, go back and
    right-click on the Taskbar and click on "Lock the Taskbar"
    to lock it in place.

    Hi, Edward.

    Drag'n'drop...

    Put your mouse over the taskbar, hold down the button while you drag the
    Taskbar to whichever side you like, then release the button.

    Couple of things could keep this from working right. First, you might have
    to uncheck Lock the taskbar. Second, it's not hard to accidentally change
    the size of the Taskbar; if that happens, just use the usual resizing
    technique of hovering your mouse over the edge of the Taskbar until the
    double-headed arrow appears, then drag the edge to the size you want.

    If you still have problems, post back with details of what you did and what
    you saw.

    Put your cursor in an empty portion of the toolbar and right click
    and hold the button down drag the toolbar wherever you you like it to be.

    Hi

    Try dragging back to the bottom of the screen with the left mouse button. When it's there, right-click it and select 'Lock the Taskbar'.
