How to move the taskbar back to the bottom of the screen

Did your Windows taskbar suddenly move to the side of the desktop screen, or even up? This can be very damaging to everyday computing, which can mean a loss of productivity at work. Your taskbar could have changed due to a programming failure or an accidental mouse click while you were focused on something else. The latter is more common and is usually the result of an unlocked taskbar.

Windows 7

There are three options to move the taskbar in the Windows 7 operating system. The first option is to right click on an empty space in the taskbar and then go to the “Properties” menu (search near the center of the menu) to Set the location of the taskbar on the screen. This menu also allows you to change or set a series of other default parameters with the Start menu and the taskbar. The second option is exactly the same as the first process given for the Windows operating systems mentioned above. And again, to prevent the established format from changing, block the taskbar by right clicking on an empty space in the taskbar and selecting the option “Lock taskbar” in the menu. The third option is a bit more complicated and requires downloading log files (files that end in “.reg”), save them to your desktop and double-click them to integrate them into your operating system. Files can be deleted after use.
