do you mean the quick launch next to the start menu?

first.. right click the task bar (the blue bar at the bottom) and choose properties, then tick the box next to "show quicklaunch", then press apply and ok....I.E. should already have a shortcut there...if there's anything else you want to add to the quicklaunch, just drag it's icon down to that area of the taskbar and drop it

Well that did not work,but all of a sudden my task bar is now at the top of the screen,I goofed somewhere. Please start over here and help me get the bar to the bottom again. My I E shortcut is still only on the main screen,as before.Tried dragging it to the taskbar to the right of where it says START. Thank You :whistling:

put cursor over top of task bar when you see up and down arrows right click and drag it back to the bottom of screen
then right click taskbar ant on properties then on the task bar tab check show quick launch...click ok you should see some icons there put cursor over until left and right arrows show then drag it you will see I.E icon
