I've Lost the Taskbar!
A nice feature of the Taskbar is
that you can move it to any of the four sides of the Desktop,
and also you can resize it (by dragging
the border) anywhere from half the screen
to almost nothing. When some people resize it to nothing, they
panic and complain that their Taskbar
has gone completely. It is not gone but just out of site, the Taskbar's
border will always be there.
Look carefully at the edges of the Desktop,
especially on the side you last saw your Taskbar.
There will be a thin gray line (or whatever color the Taskbar
happened to be.) This is the Taskbar's
border. If you point to the border
with the mouse, the mouse cursor will change to a double-pointed arrow
-- of which you can only see half of it (the other half being off the screen),
You can then hold the mouse button down and drag
the border inwards to the size you want
your Taskbar to be.
