Hi there Can anyone please tell me how to restore a missing taskbar/start button? Had corrupt or missing file error message windows/system/config etc so tried repairing OS using disc. Seems to have partially worked but now there is no taskbar. I desperately need to backup a load of files if possible. Also any idea how to get to windows explorer without start menu? The windows key on keyboard is not working! Help!!
If the Windows key doesn't work use Ctrl+Esc instead. If the menu comes up then your monitor may need adjusting for screen height or position. Also right-click the Desktop and choose Properties. On the Desktop tab click the 'Customize Desktop' button. On the General tab, in the 'Desktop Icons' area put a tick in the 'My Computer' and 'My Documents' boxes. OK your way out and you'll have icons on the Desktop.
