Moving the taskbar and start menu

  Rhuddlan 12:20 07 Dec 2003

My friend has just brought a second hand comp with win xp, don't know any more details about it, but the start menu and taskbar seem to be placed along the left hand side of the screen, instead of running along the bottom, just wonderning how to move it back to the bottom, thanks for any help given, Richards

Ricgt click and untick "Lock the taskbar" if it is ticked.

Left click and, holding down the mouse button, drag it to the bottom. Then right click and Lock the taskbar.
