  3. task bar not responding

    Hi,

    There are several possible reasons why the task bar is not working as expected. One of them may be caused by a corrupted user profile. In your case, we'd like to ask for additional information to help us determine the appropriate steps to solve the issue.
    Please answer the following:

    • Have you made any recent changes or installed updates before the task bar stopped responding?
    • Was the task bar working after you have created the user profile?
    • Have you checked if the issue also exists with the other user profiles?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    For initial troubleshooting, you can follow the steps in this article:
    Troubleshoot problems opening the Start menu or Cortana
    .

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Task bar is taking up a fourth of my screen. How do I change it back

    Task bar

    Hi SidneySherwood ,

    My name is Ana. I am an Independent Advisor. Thanks for contacting our support.

    Access the administration of the task bar

    Right click on the task bar and select task bar Settings

    Already within the configuration: in the option of task location on Screen you can see a list:

    Bottom, Right, Top, Left

    Most likely, it is in the "top" option.

    Change it to Bottom and you can have it again at the bottom of your screen

    Let me know if it helped you.

    Regards
