Lost taskbar at bottom

It's on the desktop, but when I go to IE, it's gone. This is new. How do I get it back?
Thanks,
Bill

Hello Bill,

It sounds like you may be in full screen mode while you have IE opened. Press F11 to go back to normal mode in IE to see if that allows you to see the taskbar again.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

That did it. Thanks. I guess I had accidentally bumped the F11 key.

Taskbar on bottom?
A lot of the programs I use have this glitch where when they open, they open below the taskbar, and they're stuck. Is there a way to fix this, possibly by making the taskbar below everything? ~Joshua~
