Ok, I have managed to move my toolbar ( the one with the start menu ) upto the top of my screen. ( I Think it was my little girl playing about! )

But I now can't remember for the life of me how to move it back again?

Rep given to anyone who can help me, thanks!

click on the middle of the toolbar and drag in down to the bottom but first right click on it and check if lock the taskbar has a tick is next to it if it does uncheck it then click on move it

i always thought you could just click and drag it back, but i just tried and that didn't work, i'm sure someone else will be here to answer properly soon!!

What browser you using?

For Internet Explorer:

View -> Toolbars -> Address Bar

Get a mouse with no buttons :roll:

and the moral of this story is...................

1. password protect your windows userid with just a couple of characters (e.g. 'qz')
2. put a sleep timer on 10 minutes that needs the password when woken

you're just asking for trouble letting young children loose unattended.

The amount of PC's I have went to fix where the kids or sometimes adults deny any wrongdoing :whistling:

Even better advice - create a 'limited' user account and use it for every day functions. Not only will this prevent kids (and others) from installing or deleting system files, but if you pick up any nasties on the web, they won't be able to access system files either (as you can't!). Password protect your full account and use it only for changing system information and installing/uninstalling programs.

I know this won't stop kiddies from moving toolbars, but even in the worst case scenario you could delete the limited user account and create a new one!

ctrl + alt + arrow key depending if its clock or counter clockwise rotational (this also works for un and down keys for) ooooooooʍ ʇxǝʇ uʍopǝpısdn ʎzɐɹɔ

note this only works of a few intel processors so dont all expect it to work

Just tilt your screen by 180 degree...you wil get it right... :-D

yeah this was ages ago, i got it sorted, just went onto google and typed in 'screen turned round problem' immedietely found the answer, he seemed to think it wouldn't work :?

another tip: Windows Key + Pause key brings up system information.
another tip: Windows Key + L - locks the PC.

best one is: start (Windows Key) + D. - shows the desktop.

Alt + F4 lets you play really cool secret games..... honestly.......

same with (ctrl + alt + del) x 2:-D

:-D Thanks for your help everyone, ( and all the hints and tips )

Child wasn't left on her own unattended, she was beside me and asked to 'touch the computer' I didn't see much harm in it! Won't be agreeing to that again ;-)
