Locked

XP - Taskbar disappears

By hhhammer ·
I attempted to make the taskbar 2 rows in width and the lock it. Now, each time I shut down and/or restart it disappears completely and I have to drag it back into existence. It also now does it with both a single or double row taskbar. Any ideas? Locking and unlocking the taskbar doesn't seem to work but for the current session.

The only thing I can think of is that the Auto Hide is checked ON. If you know that it is NOT CHECKED, the disregard this. If you DO NOT know if it is checked or not, do this...


1. Right click the Taskbar
2. Click PROPERTIES
3. Check to make sure the AUTO HIDE is not checked. If it is, UNCHECK it. If it is not checked, then I really don't know what is wrong. Afterall, I am just a Web Designer.

Try going to control panel choose display click on settings and lower your resolution You might also try resizeing your screen with the buttons on the front of your monitor

Sorry but it does not fix the problem. I have this problem with several computers, monitors and screen resolutions.

This appears to be an operating problem. It has happened on several computer brands (no name, Dell & IBM) several monitors and several screen resolutions. It is intermittent as well.

Try to go to dell.com and find a new computer that suits you well. that sounds wierd. You can try to boot in safe mode an see if it works then....that's all I can think about. Good luck
