startup button and taskbar

  1. I don't know what I did but the green window start up button that is usually on the bottom left corner of screen is now in the upper right corner of screen. Also all my other quick launch icons are bunched in the lower right corner. I want it all where they were in the fi..rst place. I have tried dragging right clicking everything in site. I got a feeling this is something simple that I'm overlooking. I can live with where it is but don't want to . Thanks.

    Right click on the task bar and look to see if lock the taskbar is ticked. If it is click on lock the taskbar. Now drag the task bar to wherever you want it. Right click on the task bar again and click on lock taskbar.

    Regards Howard :)

    You need to find the magic spot on the taskbar. Try left clicking and
    hold it on the time, then pull it down/left to the bottom.

    Laptop shouldn`t make any difference.
