Move your mouse near the where the taskbar should be and it should pop up.

Failing that Control panel > Taskbar and start Menu > Autohide the Task bar - untick it

I can't get to the control panel because my Task Bar is gone completely and has taken the Start Button with it.

and failing that take ur mouse to the bottom of the scree and if it turns into an arrow pull the mouse up.

Hit your windows key on your keyboard. Navigate to control panel from there.

Did you move it deliberately i.e. pushed it down with the mouse. Or did it just vanish?

Have you considered the possibility that the screen area has enlarged. What I mean is have you tried bringing up the bottom of the screen through the monitor controls.

Excellent idea. lol

Never thought of the windows key. Have got it back now but it only stays if I show the quicklaunch bar.

It all started with click here

I very much obliged to you all.
