    Hi I have my Start Button on Top Right Corner of Screen Instead of the
    Normal Position
    Anyone know how to reverse this?

    It was suggested before that I drag it across but that did Not work

    Right Click the taskbar and make sure locktaskbar is unchecked.

    Then move it where ever. Mine's always been on the top - it's not
    called a drop down menu for naught.

    All you have to do is left click on the task bar
    and drag it where you want

    First right-click on the taskbar and click "Lock the Taskbar" to
    un-check it. Then you can drag it around all you want. You will probably
    want to click "Lock the Taskbar" again to re-lock it once you're done.

  7. I bet it work for *you* if "her" name was "Dookey Mangina".

    "Heidi Manway" needs to drag "her" Start button --- LOL! ---
    and it brings out the boy-scout-wanna-be's...

    Best wishes to all for a safe and joyous holiday season.

    It did not work because they used the wrong procedure to drag it...
    that's all

    Then I suggest you take it to a competent shop.

    For, if unlocking the toolbar and then dragging it doesn't move it
    back, you have well and truly hosed your copy of Windows and need a
    nuke/n/pave to restore it.

    Or - you could just move the toolbar back, like everyone else in the
    world does, by dragging it.

    Big secret - you can't grab it in the system tray, or in any
    "toolbar"s per se - but in the "program tray" area, where the programs show
    up when they're running.

    It can be touchy if you don't know what you're doing.
