Yet another question from the Techno Numpty!

So sorry, all, I seem to be making a habit of this.

Similar problem, different cat. Digby, the fat b*s#t$r* big boned darling, decided it was his turn to wander across the keyboard. Whereas all Maurice managed to do was change the font size, his Heavyness has managed to make the task bars both top and bottom disappear.

I can get the top one back temporarily by moving the cursor which then enables me to shrink the page or use the "back" button, but the bottom one only shows once the page I'm on has shrunk. The way it usually looks means that I can have a quick peek at a small view of my emails so that I can see if anything new has come in, but now I can't.

I have tried shutting down and rebooting, but that hasn't worked.

Help, pretty please?

Was it the internet explorer toolbar? If so you can try clicking the start button, go up to internet explorer, right click that and make sure it's pinned to the taskbar. I don't know about the bottom one, as I haven't got that!

You could try using the back arrow to go back a few pages.

This has happened to me. Only fiddling helps.
