Try placing the mouse pointer on the bar, hold down the left mouse button and drag the bar to the bottom of the screen, release the mouse.

If that doesn't work Right click on the bar and check that the option to LOCK the bar is not ticked, if it is untick it.

Topcat.

Make sure you tick it, again, once you have it where you want it...

Doesn't it throw you off a little, when you move the mouse up and down (and the cursor goes left and right), and you move the cursor left and right (but the cursor moves up and down)?
You must take the ball out of the mouse and put it back in sideways.

I want my monitors on their side! I have 2 x 15.4" widescreen LCDs which are close enough to the same size as a sheet of A4 paper. If I turn both monitors on their sides I'll Have two A4 "pages" to work from!

(No instructions please, I know how to do it, just too lazy to sort out the mounts.)

My taskbar has shrunk to below the monitor base line, I have tried jumping up and down but it didnt work.

If i turn my monitor upside down do you think my taskbar will fall down again so i can see it ?

In reply to foxylady, have you tried to leave the taskbar as it is and lie on the desk from the side ? it will look almost correct then.

try hitting the windows key ( the one with the four squares that looks like a flag blowing in the wind, usually on the left near Ctrl and Alt)
Then when the taskbar appears, right click on it and adjust its properties, and perhaps drag it to be a little taller.

Dell have a few monitors where the screen can rotate to do this easily.
