Tech Tip: Move your Windows taskbar
In versions of Windows prior to Windows 8 you would be accustomed to having your taskbar (containing the start button) at the bottom of the screen. You can however move the taskbar to the top or sides of your screen to create the workspace you desire. To do this right click on an empty area of the taskbar and ensure that the “Lock the taskbar” option is unchecked. You can then drag the taskbar to the top, left or right edge of the screen.
