hi again
for some unknown reason the toolbars keep disappearing from screen thou i can access them if i hover over where they sit. it is most annoying and i don't know how to get it back, i thought lock the toolbars would solve it. also the start menu which i have placed on the bottom disappears and when i close the browser i have a blank screen instead of the desktop.
toolbars i have checked are standar, address, search, windows, status and lock the toolbars.
many thanks in advance
a little aside..i have checked the resolved on a number of posts but when i return later it has not been marked on the post..just concerned that those happy and helpfull enough to reply may think me rude and ungrateful.

I'm assuming that you mean the status bar in Internet Ecplorer:

1) With (only one) IE open, click View, select: Status Bar

2) Right-click on IE's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbars"

3) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)

4) Open WINDOWS Explorer, click View, select: Status Bar

5) Right-click on Explorer's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbar"

6) Click Tools | Folder Options | View tab

7) Click the "Apply to all folders" button. (Click OK if this gives you another dialogue question)

8) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)

9) Reopen IE to any page, right-click on a link and select: "Open in New Window" The Status Bar should remain visible.


To tick a question, scroll down, tick the box and click the resolved button.

Right-click, properties, and uncheck "Autohide"

It's a good idea to post a final message saying which solution worked for you. Then you have to check resolved and press the button again for it to take effect.

The bar that you are hovering over, is the taskbar, not a toolbar. Somehow you have this set to autohide. If you hover over it, right click on it (when it appears) and choose properties from the resulting menu. De-select Auto hide the task bar, from taskbar properties and it will be visable again....TT
