View Full Version : Lost Taskbar & Icons in WinXP

29-09-2003, 02:41 PM
My taskbar and all my icons disappeared from the desktop. Is there anyway to get them back, because restarting the system doesn't help. I have been running programs from the taskmanager. I am running WinXP

The only thing that I can see is the mouse pointer and the wallpaper/background. Does anyone know what is causing this? How can I get the start button, taskbar and desktop icons back? Thanks.
Its got nothing to do with taskbar Autohide

In case a second monitor has been accidentally enabled, can you move the mouse off the screen, to one of either the left or right side, as if the monitor was twice as wide as you can see?

If thats the case, you need to disable the secondary monitor (its behaving as the primary) and all your useable bits may be on the missing screen.
