Solved Can't resize Taskbar

We had a power cut here and my Computer , burglar alarm and central heating boiler all had problems this morning. I have just one problem left which I can't get right.
The task bar managed to get itself to the side of my screen , so I dragged it back to the bottom where it changed to a very large size, about 1" deep. I tried to use the mouse to get the arrow to drag it down and resize it, but it will not go back to it's narrow size. Any ideas please ?

Welcome
Its rather simple if you know how. Good luck
Resize the taskbar

Thanks for the link but that is what I have already tried to do ! I have just had another go and instead of using the double headed arrow at the top of the taskbar, I clicked on the dots at the side of the Start Orb and dragged it to the right and then it went back to it's original , narrow size.
