task bar is vertical...what happened?

by Rosanne / October 13, 2004 1:09 PM PDT

My task bar is on the left side of my screen, vertical, top to bottom. How do I get it back to the bottom of my screen, horizontal? I was going to shut down my windows media player and somehow my mouse slipped off the media player as I was clicking and the taskbar went to the side. I don't know how to get it back to the bottom. Please help.

Hi, just left click on the task bar and hold the button as you drag the taskbar back to the bottom of the desktop. That's all there is to it.
