XP Taskbar

  staples printer cartridge 19:06 17 Nov 2003

My kids have been fiddling with my pc and I have ended up with a double size taskbar. When I drag it down it disappears off the screen. I can resize it but it doubles again. It is not hidden in case anyone thinks that is the solution. Any ideas please?

When you reisze it, do you then "Lock the taskbar"?

Sorry, I obviously wasn't clear. When I drag it down it disappears off the screen; I can then pull it back up but it doesn't go back to normal, it goes back to a double size chunky task bar. If I could get it the right size then I would lock it.

Didn't work, still disappears

Have you tried locking and/or unlocking it?

There would be no point locking it as it is twice the size it should be. But yes I have tried it just to be sure.Thanks

Yeah, tried that too. No avail!

no it doesn't go down in two stages.

Yeah thanks, I was hoping to find a solution before I did that, but might have to give up soon...it is annoyingly chunky!

That is what I'm doing thanks
