    Left click on it, hold the left mouse button down, and drag it to where you
    want.

    Why didn't I need to use that procedure before?

    Sorry, I misread Jane C's response.
    That's how I've always moved the toolbar. (Drag and Drop)
    I found out though that when I remove the Quick Launch and then
    reinstate it the Taksbar is then movable.
    Don't get it.

    That's strange. I didn't have to remove and reinstate Quick Launch in order
    to move the Taskbar. I only had to unlock it.

    Move taskbar

    I found that the Quick Launch must be turned off, as well as unlocking the taskbar before it can be dragged back to the bottom.

    Re: Unable to Move Taskbar

    I've tried all the procedures listed above to move my taskbar but none has worked. My taskbar is not locked, I've disabled and enabled my quick launch, I've disabled my quick launch and still nothing works. Because we are creatures of habit, I can't wrap my mind around my taskbar being on the right side of my screen!

    I had the same problem on a club members computer.
    I was about to give up, then changed the width of the task bar and tried it again an it moved.
    Then I returned the width to the the original size and locked it for him.

    It is worth a try.
