I Have Windows Xp.
When I Right Click The Items That Are Minimized At The Bottom Of The Screen Nothing Happens, I Used To Be Able To Close Them And Stuff.
Also Some Minimized Items When I Click On Them Open "down" Off My Screen Instead Of "up" Onto My Screen. I Am A Beginner So Please Help!
I Have Checked My Mouse Settings And Everything Seems Fine.
Help!

For your mouse problem, it's a new one to me. I really can't recommend any fixes.

If you want to close things from the taskbar (the bar along the bottom of the screen), click on what you want to close and click the Close button.

For those that appear on the taskbar but not on the screen (sneaky online buggers), click on what you want to close, but then hold 'Alt' and then press 'F4' (Alt+F4 is the general close shortcut).

I don't use XP but this should be in the same place.(ish)
Click start, settings, taskbar and start menu, advanced and make sure the ' display shortcuts on right click menu' box is checked.
Clicking an item in the taskbar will either minimise it or bring it back in view to it's previous size, depending on whether it was showing in the first place. I don't quite understand what you mean when you say . .
"Also Some Minimized Items When I Click On Them Open "down" Off My Screen "
When minimized, it should already be 'down off your screen'. Where is it then, when minimized?
