This can happen a couple of ways first the start menu button could have inadvertently been moved by your mouse or the start button could have the auto hide feature enabled

If you have temporarily hidden the taskbar by dragging the top edge down, drag the visible edge upward to redisplay the taskbar

Move your mouse to the edge of the taskbar left click the edge while holding down the left mouse button and drag the taskbar up, release the left mouse button and the taskbar will appear again.

If you can't see the the taskbar at all use Ctrl Esc to bring up the start button, if the taskbar is hidden, right-click the Start button, click Properties, and then, on the Taskbar tab, clear the Auto-hide the taskbar check box
