    I use an another key board plugged into my laptop so I don't have to hold the laptop on my lap in the evening. I reached across the keyboard in my lap & bumped something & it turned everything on the desktop 1/4 turn to the right so the tool bar is on the left top to bottom & I'm getting a kink in my neck as I type this. this is in windows 7 can someone help me straighten this out please. Thanks, Bart

    In W98 & WXP if I remember right the tool bar can be left clicked & dragged where you want it maybe W7 is the same. I just did it & it worked fine.

    I love my wife. I tolerate computers because they make some things easier to do.

    Yep, I was going to say 'drag'.
    We got the wife a laptop yesterday. Her ancient desktop was terminal.
