hello all,

i have a question i like to have my startbar on the leftside of my screen but i do not like to have the start button up on the left top. Is there a way to move the start button to the bottom basically flipping the bar 180 degrees?

thank you in advance.

Hello Misterd1629

Click an empty space on the taskbar, hold down the mouse button and then drag the taskbar to the bottom of the desktop.
When the taskbar is where you want it simply release the mouse button.

If the taskbar is locked;
Right-click an empty space on the taskbar.
If lock the taskbar has a check mark next to it the taskbar is locked, you can unlock it by clicking lock the taskbar, this will remove the check mark and allow you to move your taskbar to the bottom of the desktop by following the above steps.

Let us know how it goes.

phil,

first of all thank you for the reply!
i think i have not explained clearly what i was looking for :(
i would like to keep the bar on the left side right where it is in the picture but i would like to rotate it 180 degrees so that the start button is on the left bottom and the time is on the top.
if this is even posible i can't figure out how to do it :)

thanks

D

Ah I see what you mean, after having tried this way and that :rolleyes:

I have most likely found what you have already which is bottom right or centre, sorry :(

You are welcome btw and please let us know if you find what you are looking for.

I found this: Move your Start Button and Start Menu to different locations on your Taskbar

I know nothing about it though as I've never used it.

Z,

That works but is very annoying because everytime you click the start button i need to give premision for the program to run. i could change my settings but i'm not comfortable with that since my little ones use the computer as well and i know how click happy they are lol.

thank you for this suggestion but i'll have to keep looking for something else.
