Hi all.
I am new here and am looking for some help please.
Yesterday My son managed to change some things on my PC and has no idea how.
What has happened is that the page is too long for the scrren and cannot be dragged, the only way I can change it is to right click on the task bar and click on the tab that says something about a horizontal tile, that enables me to drag it so i can see my boxes in the right hand corner, although this doesnt stay set and each page I open I have to do this over again.
The second thing that has changed is that the task bar is too long for the page now and the clock is off the page, I cannot drag this back at all.
I have restored and basically spent 8 hours trying to source the problem but cannot do it.
Can anyone please help me? (before i go mad!!!)

Well Danzil you deserve a star! After hours of fiddling about you hit the nail on the head and it was one of the buttons on the side of the monitor, thanks so much
