How to Reset My Windows Toolbar

by Joshua Laud

If you find that your Windows taskbar (sometimes referred to as the toolbar) has moved across the screen, then you may want to reset it to the original position. The Windows taskbar can be positioned on any side of the computer screen. When you reset the bar, you may wish to lock it. Locking the bar will ensure that you don't accidentally move it in the future.

Click and hold the mouse in an empty section of the taskbar.

Click and drag the taskbar back to the bottom of the screen. Let go of the mouse.

Right-click the taskbar.

Click "Lock the Taskbar." This will keep your Windows toolbar in the default position.
