How do I restore the position of the start button etc

  tomgil 17:17 11 Feb 2015

I am running Windows 7 with Microsoft Office 2010. Quite suddenly, and for no reason that I know, the start button has moved from bottom left to top left. At the same time the various icons which used to appear at the bottom right have moved to the bottom left. All this would not have mattered except that it has reduced the useful width of the screen causing me to lose some columns of figures. Any help in restoring it to how it used to look would be very gratefully received.

You need to right click desk top and select display settings in the Nvieda or other graphics dcontrol panel there should be a setting to switch the display.

or possibly try ctrl alt and left or right arrow key

"..............the start button has moved from bottom left to top left."

To move the Task Bar back to where you want it, click on an empty area, keep the mouse button held down and drag it to the bottom then release it. To prevent this from occurring again, right-click on it and choose "Lock the Task Bar".

Windows taskbar. The asiest way would be to right click on the taskbar and select properties. On the taskbar tab you should see "Taskbar location on screen" next to it you will see where the taskbar is positioned on the desk top and just change it to where you want it and make sure you have a tick against lock the taskbar.
