Alright so the start menu/task bar/ thing on my computer used to run along the bottom...but my friend did something (she doesn't know what) so now it is running vertically along the right side. If you know how to reverse this so it is at the bottom again i would really appreciate it. I'll rate 5's for anyone who can give me directions on changing it.

Then, right-click and *hold* the mouse button down. Drag the Taskbar to the place you want it to go. It won't move along with you smoothly; it will snap into place once you've moved the cursor all the way to the bottom of the screen. Release the mouse button, and you're all set.
If you want to avoid this happening in the future, you can lock the Taskbar now.
By the way, the Windows "Help and Support" feature (from the Start button) is a good way to find out solutions to problems like this. So is Google; if you were to Google for "move taskbar", you'd get the solution, too. [ TheOldOne's advice column | Ask TheOldOne A Question ]

It should move, if not..you might have it locked on the side of the screen. Just right click on it and deselect "lock the taskbar" if it won't move, and then it should move to the bottom again.

Just click and hold down on the task bar and move it towards the bottom of your desktop (just like you would move a folder to your Recycle Bin). Clicking on the spacious part of the task bar, not the buttons, will move it. [ Karen's advice column | Ask Karen A Question ]
