This Is what I did. First Start Task manager. Then Click Processes And Find explorer.exe. Right click it and click end process. Then go to file new task and type explorer.exe and the taskbar shold appear.
My bar and those desktop icons were disappeared due to a virus or something . and i dont know how to get it back . i tried right clicking on my desktop and nothing happened . and everytime i login to my computer , only a document file will appear . and thats how i access through files and everything in that document . if i cancel it , i would need to restart my computer again so that it would appear , and sometimes it wouldnt . and i need help solving this asap , thanks.
Thanks! I was wondering how I was going to turn off the computer if I didn't have that bit! Blasted cat - it happened when she walked across my keypad.
Thanks! Now I finally know how to find my way around this problem. Running 'explorer' through the task manager really worked.
This helped. realised that i had to restart the explorer since it missed a certain file. =/ oh well.
Thank you very much for this assistance. I, by mistake, closed the task bar while tinkering with task master and couldn't get it back for a half-hour.
MONTHS of this little issue of the disappearing task bar. In 30 seconds on your site I learn the fix and all is good. Thank you, Leo, out there somewhere... All is good.
There was a comment here that totally helped me since the methods explained did not work and pressing CTRL+ESC did not help either. If you have Vista go to Personlize > Display Settings > then click the 2nd monitor > uncheck the box that says "extend the desktop onto this monitor" > press OK. This fixed my problem. Hope it helps!
It worked! Your instructions were easy to understand and solved my problem. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
YES THANK YOU! THE FILE NEW TASK AND TYPING IN "EXPLORER" WORKED!!! THANKS :D
