Windows 7: Position of Start Menu Icon and print size in Search box

Position of Start Menu Icon and print size in Search box

I find that using the search box in Start is a PITB. For some reason, probably age related sight defects, I find looking down and left and focussing not easy. Add to that the size of print of any query input makes it easy to make errors in searches.

I don't want to use Magnifier, as otherwise my vision is not that bad, so my question is this.

Is there a way to relocate Start from bottom left ( with/without the other task bar items) to a personally more convenient location on the monitie screen?

You could move the start button along with the taskbar to the right, left or top of your screen.
