Ron I don't know if you where around at the time

But a while ago someone asked the same question and I sort of replied the same way as above but without the bit about placing the Mouse Pointer on a Unused part of the Task Bar. To me that was so obvious that it didn't need saying as only a complete idiot would click on a open Tab or so I thought at least.

The Poster there replied that he wasn't an Idiot and jumped on me quite hard. Then several days latter they posted the fix which was exactly what i had said but included the Unused word. :^0

I can be confusing to them by assuming too much. On the bright side, they seem to feel glad that they have me while I feel bad that I'm all they have. We manage somehow. <br>

Stumped me. Maybe that's a sign that I should hang it all up and go Facebook farming. I was working on my pink roses mastery.

Did you try

what NexS said? that should work. It sounds like she rotated the screen which is usually done by a hotkey. there is also sometimes a icon in the taskbar on the right (guess it is left now)that looks like a monitor that you can right click on and fix the orientation of the screen.

I've seen a picture of the Start button on top.

by Ron K. In reply to start on top rather than ...

There was a blue column beneath it for all of the programs. Of course I can't find that picture again and I can't create the problems. <br>
One solution not mentioned here is to reboot the computer into Safe Mode by repeatedly pressing the F8 key after your computers sounds the POST beep, before going to regular Windows. The Start button should be at the bottom. Simply click on a bare area of the task bar and choose to Lock the Taskbar then reboot into Windows normally. The start button should remain at the bottom of the window on the left.

Be aware, while entering Safe Mode it takes a few minutes.

The screen seems to stall at mup.sys but if you leave it be it'll load. I get impatient so I generally walk away for a few minutes.
