My taskbar moved from the bottom of the screen to the right side, how do I get it to go back to the bottom and remain visable?

Posted

Much of the information associated with my taskbar was eliminated when it suddenly moved from the bottom of the screen to the right side; it disappears then reappears when the browser goes to the right. This is totally annoying. How can I get my original taskbar to display on the bottom of the screen again?

Chosen solution

You can drag the Windows Taskbar back to the position at the bottom of the screen.
After having done that right-click the Taskbar and look for a context menu entry to lock the Taskbar to prevent that from happening again.
