    it sounds like your toolbar is moved...
    just grab it and move it to its rightful place (where you want it to be) :) (grab the toolbar... dont press on the programs..)

    if it does not move its locked.... right click on the mouse and ulock the toolbar.. when the toolbar is moved, lock it so it stays there... (right click ... lock the toolbar)...

    The screen also could have been tiled vertically.

    Right click on the Taskbar> undo tile.

    Don't close the Windows before you undo or you will have two 'wrong size' Windows!
