Angry Can't move taskbar
In the middle of using my laptop, the taskbar moved from the bottom of the screen to the left side of the screen. I click on to drag but it won't move. I did a virus scan with my anit-virus scan program and no viruses were detected. So I don't know what's the problem. I'm using windows 95

Karen,

The usual method of moving the taskbar is to click and hold in a solid grey area of the bar, then drag it back to where you want it.

Is this method not working?

Yes, that's exactly what I did. I clicked on the blank gray area, held down the button and try to drag it to the bottom or another location, but it just won't move.

Right click on the taskbar and make sure "lock taskbar" isn't checked.

How did you come to move the task bar in the first place? Did you move it accidentally or did it move by itself ?
I am convinced that if you left click (and hold) in a solid, unused part of the bar, and drag it - it will move.

I didn't do anything, it jumped from the bottom of the screen to the left of the screen and when I left-click on the gray and hold down the button on the blank area of the screen it will not budge at all. Sorrsy, but this is the case

Sorry Karen - I don't have any more suggestions

Perhaps someone else could offer a solution?

I finally found the solution to the problem. Instead of clicking in the blank grey area of the task bar I needed to double-click on the conner of the taskbar. It moved with no problem

Thanks you all for your effort
