I have no idea how this happened. I logged onto my desktop one morning and the taskbar wasn't across the bottom anymore. Now, it is across the top and has been ever since I thought maybe it was a setting somewhere I could change but it has been about 5 months and still can't find one so if someone knows what i can do to fix this please let me know. Everything still works properly it is just kind of wierd that it did that would like to know more info on it but haven't found anything about it. thank you...

Simple. First make sure that the lock taskbar option isn't selected by right clicking on the taskbar, and deselecting it if necessary. Then just click and drag the taskbar to any of the four sides of the screen, and lock it again when you're done.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
