Try pressing F11, which toggles between full screen and showing the Taskbar and Toolbar.

put your mouse near the bottom of screen, see if it changes to double arrow, if it does click and drag up

Right click on task bar properties and put a tick against keep taskbar on top also make sure the tick is removed from auto-hide taskbar.

In IE, Tools > Toolbars > and put a tick next to 'Status Bar'

(Status Bar is the one at the bottom of IE)

Well I always called it task bar from 1995. I thought Status Bar was at the top in Win Explorer.
Just checked in win Explorer Status Bar goes just above the Task bar and tels you how many files in a folder etc
