Now this is silly - after a complete re-install of Windows, SP2, online updates, Office & iupdates, and returning the laptop to my daughter, as soon as she booted there was no taskbar - and I cannot think how to restore it or even why it disappeared.
I guess somehow it has got auto-hide set? But how do you restore it, she says right clicking on desktop offers no appropriate options.
I do not have the machine in front of me - but ideas would be great. Thanks.
I did tell her to try and get the mouse to turn to double arrow at the bottom of the screen, like to drag the taskbar back up - no luck, no handles either????? It just is not there, not stuck at the bottom. Mind you, I haven't seen it myself!
Thalmus, I got Taskbar & start menu through explorer, and the, Hamish, found that quicklaunch had been unchecked - thus removing taskbar from the desktop. I'm sure that did not happen by itself! Thanks for the tips.
