By Kefa Olang

If your task bar is along the top of your computer screen, you can move it to the bottom if you want to manage screen space. The task bar allows you to view running programs, system tools such as the clock and add shortcuts to your favorite and frequently used programs.

Step 1

Unlock the task bar by right-clicking it and clicking "Lock the taskbar" if this option has a check mark on it. This allows you to move the task bar.

Step 2

Click an empty space on the task bar, hold down the left mouse button and drag the task bar to the bottom of your screen.

Step 3

Right-click the task bar again and click "Lock the taskbar."
