My toolbar has somehow gone pearshaped, is there away of getting it back to default status?

I have an laptop with Vista basic.

Any particular toolbar, or do we just guess?

Doesent sound like a toobar to me,which is at top of your browser.Thats the task bar.Drag it down to proper size and see what happens,you will have to unlock it first.Have you got quick launch selected.?

That's the Taskbar, Molly_Don. Right-click on the Taskbar and make sure the "Lock the taskbar" option is unticked, then put your mouse on the top edge of the taskbar and drag the edge down until it is the correct height. Then right-click the taskbar again and tick the "Lock the taskbar" option again.

Opps taskbar dam it (I'm such a numpty)

OK, I've followed your instructions but it won't drag down, the lock the taskbar is unticked.

I can drag the taskbar up the page, but it won't go any lower than what's in the image above.

right-click on it again, Molly_Don, go to Toolbars, make sure everything is unticked under Toolbars and then try to drag it down again.

ha, done it with your help

Quick launch was ticked.

I've now locked the taskbar

Thanks for your help MAJ, I'd never have fixed it without you.

One more question, that blue e (IE) & my fav sites have all gone now, how do I get them back in a line going up, if I click quick launch it goes back to square 1.

Try going to, in IE, View > Explorer Bar > Favorites.
