Get Back The Missing Taskbar In Windows 7

The taskbar is the long horizontal bar at the bottom of your screen. Unlike the desktop, which can get obscured by the windows on top of it, the taskbar is visible almost all the time.

Note: Microsoft incorporated a taskbar in Windows 95 and it has been a defining aspect of Microsoft Windows's graphical user interface ever since.

The taskbar is a handy Windows 7 feature that usually squats along the bottom of your screen. Sometimes, unfortunately, it up and wanders off into the woods. Here are a few ways to track it down and bring it home.

If your taskbar suddenly clings to an edge of your desktop — or even the  ceiling — try dragging it back in place: Instead of dragging an edge, drag  the taskbar from its middle. As your mouse pointer reaches your desktop’s  bottom edge, the taskbar suddenly snaps back into place. Let go of the  mouse, and you’ve recaptured it.

Follow these tips to prevent your taskbar from wandering:

✓ To keep the taskbar locked into place so that it won’t float away, right click a blank part of the taskbar and select Lock the Taskbar. Remember, though, that before you can make any future changes to the taskbar, you must first unlock it.

✓ If your taskbar drops from sight whenever the mouse pointer doesn’t hover nearby, turn off the taskbar’s Auto Hide feature: Right-click a blank part of the taskbar and choose Properties from the pop-up menu. When the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box appears, deselect the Auto-Hide the Taskbar check box. (Or, to turn on the Auto Hide feature, select the check box.)
