1. The easiest case is when you intentionally or accidentally included auto-hide the taskbar. This is available in the system and saves occupied by the panel: the panel automatically collapses into a thin strip and re-appears when it zooms to the mouse cursor. However, given that the task bar may not necessarily be accommodated in a familiar place — at the bottom edge of the screen to find her inexperienced user can be difficult. Back panel more predictable behavior very easily. If you were able to find her, you need to click the right button of the mouse on a toolbar and open its properties. If you can not find control Panel — task Bar and start menu. In any case, in the opened settings window, you should uncheck "auto-hide the task bar". This will help to restore the taskbar.

  2. The dimensions of the taskbar can be changed, if it is not in "fixed" mode. In particular, the control panel can be minimized to a very narrow strip, which is difficult to notice on the screen. To return to her former size, just grab the edge of the new strip with the mouse and pull the taskbar back.

  3. If the task pane is "stuck" to the side or even the upper corner of the screen, then return it to its former place is also easy. Just grab the mouse and drag down. If this doesn't work — click on the taskbar, right click and untick "lock the taskbar" then try again to drag the mouse.

  4. The most complicated case, when the taskbar is "hidden" settled in the system with a virus. In this case, to return the control panel will work only after cleaning the system from malware. To run antivirus software use hotkey: Win+R will show a command prompt that allows you to run any application, by itself the Win key will trigger the start menu. In an extreme case, use the combination Ctrl+Alt+Del and start the task Manager. It not only allows you to complete tasks and processes, but also to start a new one.
