Default Re: Start button is on top

Windows XP, Mozilla Firefox. I was on my computer this mourning, and closed my eyes just to take a break,swirled my mouse in circles then left clicked. I opened my eyes and found my start button on top instead of the lower left side of the screen.My clock is no longer on the bottom right, but is in the middle. I re-started, and even turned the computer off , nothing has changed. How do I make things right again?

Let me add that when I click on the start button everything works. If I'm on my home page, or any page, if I run the courser all the way to the right, it will bring up the start button.

Yep, or right click task bar, and make sure it isnt 'locked' where you dont want it to be (I.E. At the top) You can unlock it from here, then click and drag it to which side of the screen you want it on, then right click > lock again so it doesnt move, or go to properties as suggested above.

Note: Keep eyes open when you're clicking on the screen

Yeah everyone here is right.

It should be as simple as right clicking the task bar that has moved, unticking 'Lock the taskbar', and then whilst holding the left mouse button down on it, drag the mouse down. It won't follow straight away, but then will 'click' into place as it were, back at the bottom. Then just right click it and hit 'Lock the taskbar' again.
