How to find the taskbar.

Question

I am having problems finding my taskbar that is no longer visible on the bottom of my desktop. I have no idea how it could have disappeared. I thought that I could have made it invisible, but it doesn't pop up when I drag the mouse along the bottom of the screen. I don't know what else the problem could be. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Thank you

What you could do is take your mouse pointer and check all four sides of your desktop for your taskbar What I mean is when your mouse pointer turns into a double sided arrow click and drag the object (which is most likely your taskbar)

Also what you could do is click start, settings, taskbar & start menu check auto hide to on Click ok, then go to your desktop Now carefully check all 4 sides of your screen with your pointer You may see a slight pop up of your taskbar, but it will be very small, so look carefully If you see it pop up click and drag it to full size

When you are done go back and take auto hide off.

Good luck!
