The taskbar is the horizontal bar that is present on the system screen at the bottom. The user can resize and move the taskbar from the default position. The Windows Vista Operating System also offers advanced taskbar options. The default position of the taskbar can be changed by the user after disabling lock option for the taskbar. For that the user should either right click on the empty space at the taskbar, deselect lock the taskbar option or navigate to the control panel and disable the locking option at the taskbar section. Now the user can move the taskbar around the screen of the Windows Vista system. Click on the empty area at the taskbar and drag the mouse pointer to the position on the screen where the user needs to place the taskbar. Hold on the button until the position is reached.

Benefits of moving the taskbar
The taskbar that can be moved around the system screen would enable the user with the option to change the position of the taskbar. The user can position the taskbar at the top of the window or at the left or right edge of the screen according to the needs. This provides the option to change the default look of the screen. Thus users can make the appearance of their system more attractive.
Issues that arise while doing so
The option to move the taskbar around the system screen sometimes results in the disappearance of the taskbar from the monitor. The users would be prevented from accessing the taskbar icons which difficulty in launching and managing the various applications. Another issue that may arise while the user changes the position of the taskbar is that the taskbar doesn't move from the default position.
Movement of the taskbar on the Windows Vista systems is possible only after unlocking the taskbar option. The disappearance of the taskbar is due to the resizing of the taskbar while the user changes the position. For enabling the option again, the user should click on ctrl + Windows key and find the position of the start menu. Rebooting the system to load the safe mode also helps in resolving the issues.
