taskbar in wrong place

by Derfred / February 2, 2006 7:57 AM PST

I was playing an online game on full screen(F11). When i hit F11 to go back my taskbar was on the right side instead of the bottom. This is very annoying. How do I put it back on the bottom?? I tried to drag it somehow but i cannot get it to work.

Thanks anyway

This is one of those 'smack-myself-upside-tha'-head' kind of solutions...because it's so OBVIOUS when you finally solve it!

Of course, the fact that you solved it before someone pointed out the solution helps.

My wife had the same thing at work. Minimal fiddling by the master (me) resolved it.
