How To Move The Taskbar
Dear Computer Lady,
All my icons on my desktop are at the side.
I want them at the bottom. Help!
If the icons you are referring to are your desktop icons, you should be able to drag each one with your mouse and move it wherever you want.
I’m guessing though, you are referring to the icons on your taskbar which can be on placed on either side, the top or bottom of your screen.
You can easily fix that with the following directions:
1. Right-click on a blank spot on your taskbar and click either “Properties” or “Settings” depending on what version of Windows you are using.
2. Find the setting for “Taskbar location on screen” and click the drop-down list to select “Bottom”
3. Click “OK” to save your changes and close the settings window, or in Windows 10, just close the window, your settings are automatically saved.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
