If you are taling about the taskbar, just put your mouse curser on an empty area, click and hold while dragging it back to the bottom.

also, you MIGHT have to Unlock the Taskbar, before you can move it.

To unlock, just right-click over any blank area of the Taskbar, and select the "Lock the Taskbar" selection (if you have it, since it MIGHT not be there for W98 - I think).

That toggles the selection. At that time you can relocate the Taskbar, as SGH mentioned.

Once you place it to one of the 4 screen edges, as you like, if you can, you might consider locking the Taskbar at that time.

I had that problem too, and just recently learned that if I place my cursor on the edge of the toolbar
so it turns into a double arrow, pull the toolbar as wide as it will go and click on it, it will jump to another position. For instance, if it is on the right side of my screen and I do this, it will jump to the top or bottom, I forget which, but you just
jump it around until it is where you want it--top, bottom, left side or right side.

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?
