Hello,

My kid somehow moved the taskbar from the bottom of the screen to the right
side. Can someone tell me how to move it back? I know in pre-WinXP
versions, you could just drag and drop it. This does not seem to be the case
on my system.

Thanks,
Rich

Hi Rich

You should be able to drag and drop it with the left mouse button. Make
sure that the Taskbar in unlocked first.

Hi Will,

When I right-click on the taskbar, unlocked is not checked. Am I missing
something? Is there a sub-menu or something non-obvious that I may be
missing?

Thanks,
Rich

Hi Rich

There's no sub menu for locking/unlocking the Taskbar. Make sure that 'Lock
the Taskbar' is not enabled, then try dragging it to the bottom of the
screen.
