Click and hold it and drag it back down to the bottom

Should work

Left click and HOLD (on a blank spot on taskbar) and drag to bottm, then release.

Try right click on taskbar and untick "Lock Taskbar"

before you click and drag on it right click and make sure that "lock the taskbar" is NOT checked, so its not locked to prevent you from moving it..

than try clicking holding and dragging it

it should work, i just did it after i unlocked it.

And make sure you drag it from the task bar area and not the quick launch area of the task bar, or it may not move.

I remember this problem when I first had my computer.
The mistake is to try and drag the taskbar.

This is what you do. Leftclick on the taskbar and hold while moving the mousepointer to where you want the taskbar to go. Then release the mouse and hey presto: success!!

Or have/get that bug that turns your display upside-down then, well, umm, turn your monitor upside down???????

the above reply is an example of a response that doesn't really help anyone at all but hey, it's Friday
