won't work. can not move by dragging. the bar i mentioned appeared on tyhe left side of my screen. it sort of made my desktop a size smaller because it stayed on the left side of the screen.

Right click taskbar,then left click on unlock taskbar, then try dragging it to where you want it, then right click again and lock the taskbar.

hi, is it possible to attach a picture so that i could let someone see what i am talking about. i don't think it is part of the task bar. a vertical space containing folder tasks, other palces and details as headings appeared on my left screen eating away space from my desktop. this is the one i am having problem removing.

Moving the task bar around the screen.
Clicking on it and dragging it to where you want
IS the remedy.
However the trick is to 'click' the right spot.
Computery, like wimmin is a matter of trial and error to find the right spot.

I can only agree with the others. You must have dragged it there accidentally yourself.

looking at it carefully, i think it is not a task bar because i still have my task bar at the bottom of the page. this is sort of a additional window on the left side of the screen occupying at least 20 percent of the screen from top to bottom on the left side. still need help removing it. cheers

Hi pamintacake. To send a picture, press the Print Scrn key on yout keyboard. Open any picture editing program e.g. MS Paint. Paste the image of your desktop and save as a JPG file. Click on the envelope alongside my nickname and email me to give me your email address. I'll reply with my email address, then you can send me a copy of your desktop and I can see if I can help identify this new bar.

Right Click on an empty part of your taskbar - Click "Toolbars" - and see if you have inadvertantly added another.

By default all that should be ticked is "Quick Launch".
