    I am sorry I did not realise there was more than one taskbar on windows 2003, the one that has gone is the one that usually says start on it so that you can access your files etc., also I ment to say control panel and not control manager

    Thanks
    Cheers

    OK, so it has nothing to do with MS Office. I will move this thread to the Windows 2003 forum. In the future, please take a few seconds to choose the appropriate forum to post in. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I assume that you have checked that you haven't accidentally set it to 0 height or to auto-hide (see screenshot).

    Check out My Taskbar is missing and I have no Start button - what do I do? - Ask Leo!

    Thanks for the response Hans

    From within control panel nothing happens when I click the icon for the taskbar, I have followed the advice from 'Leo' in your link but none of these help. I do remember sometime last year that a similar question was asked and somebody posted a link to a program that could recover the taskbar but searching in the lounge and on google has not yet produced any results.

    I thought perhaps a system rollback might help but when I press F1 and type rollback into the search box it just seems to explain about removing new devices or software.

    Thanks anyway

    Steve

    You may have inadvertently dragged your taskbar out of sight. First put your cursor at the absolute bottom of your screen and see if it changes to a double pointed line as if it has found something. If this occurs, then left click and hold the button down while you drag the taskbar back into view. Once you have it back and it is the width you want then right-click on the taskbar and select Lock Taskbar from the dropdown menu. HTH <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Visit http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and download fix # 117. Merge it to the registry (despite it was created for Windows XP, it will work on Server 2003 also).

    You are most likely thinking of System Restore not system rollback.
