    Put mouse cursor on an empty part of the taskbar, not on the Start button.

    If it won't move, right click on a vacant space on the taskbar and
    untick "Lock the taskbar". When it is back where you want it, retick
    "Lock the taskbar".

    The "Drag 'n' Drop" metaphor has apparently become so ubiquitous that people
    don't even realize they're using it anymore.

    So you really believe the OP is sufficiemtly moronic to have originally
    dragged the taskbar to the left side and locked it without knowing anything
    about it? Or do you really believe that the O$ is sufficiently moronic to
    do that for the OP?

    You might be right; who knows? It's got to be one or the other, though.

    First ensure that "Lock The taskbar"

    First ensure that "Lock The taskbar" option is not checked. You can see this option when you right click on taskbar.
    After that, click on your taskbar and drag it to the bottom of the screen and you should be able to see what you want.

    Hope this helps.

    Although by default the task bar appears on the bottom of the screen,
    it can be on any of the sides you prefer it on. To move it from any
    side to another, simply click on an unused part of it and drag it
    where you want it. Be sure to click *within* it, not on the edge;
    clicking on the edge and dragging will resize it, not move it.

    If it won't move, it may be locked. In that case, right click on it
    and uncheck "Lock the taskbar," then try again.

    By the way, with today's wide-screen monitors, I prefer the task bar
    on the left or right side of the screen. I think that makes a better
    use of screen real estate than having it at the bottom.
