The arrow by the clock which you use to scroll up and down and it is hidden under the taskbar,I shut down my latop and when I restarted it it was ok but it hidden again

Hover mouse over top edge of task bar and you can lower or raise task bar.

Or click on empty area of task bar and drag to left right or top of screen.

Another handy feature of the taskbar, especially on a laptop, is to auto-hide it. Right click taskbar, select properties then tick the box to auto-hide under the taskbar tab.

Thanks for the replies the Auto Hide box was already ticked the taskbar is there now and does not move so cannot scroll down,

Fruit Bat /\0/\ when I right click on properties then task bar location I can choose between top,bottom.left or right have tried that but nothing happens and would still prefer it at the bottom.

Have moved the taskbar to the top and so can now scroll up and down but the taskbar still stays there so now cannot click on the cross to exit as the taskbar covers it.

Have now moved the taskbar to the left side although I am sure it will be covering something but wont know untill it happens

Move the taskbar back to the bottom and make sure hide is still ticked. Make sure it is locked. Reboot after closing all your browsers tabs and any other running program.
