I was just messing around with my Taskbar, as you do...
... and well i was moving it around, trying to figure out where i prefered it, bottom, top, left or right of the screen. However, just as i was moving the bar from left to the top my hand slipped and well the mouse went flying off (to the right i think).
Now i can't see the taskbar at! I'm unsure as to whether I clicked the "hide taskbar" or "locked" options. I've managed to get to control panel from my desktop icons and opened up the "Taskbar and Start Menu" settings. However, the window did not show.
Well actually, it did show, just that i couldn't see it. I went into task manager and sure enough, there was the "Task Bar" settins window open but no-where in site.
