Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Every so often, it's possible to end up with the Windows XP taskbar on the side, or even the top of your screen. It's a quick fix, as this video shows.
My taskbar moved from the bottom of my monitor to the side. How do I put it back?
It happens, and if you're not expecting it, it can be really disconcerting.
It's an easy fix, best described with a short video (transcript included).

A reader asked "My taskbar moved from the bottom of my monitor to the side. How do I put it back?"
Click on an empty area of the taskbar and hold the mouse button down.
Now, just drag the mouse down to where you want the taskbar to be. Once you get close enough, it'll jump right into place.
To keep it from jumping around again, right click on the taskbar, and then select Lock the Taskbar.
If you like, you can actually put your taskbar on top, the bottom or any side of the screen you like.
That's all there is to it!
