The Microsoft Windows task bar is a part of a larger program that is always running on your computer, called Windows Explorer. The default location of the task bar is always at the bottom of your screen. It is possible, however, to move the task bar to any one of the other three sides of your screen, depending on your personal preference. If you've accidentally moved the location of the task bar and would like to return it to is default location, you can do so in seconds.
