Are you talking about the Taskbar? Right click it and make sure "Lock Task Bar" is not checked then left click the Taskbar and drag it to the bottom. To keep it at the bottom Right Click and click "Lock Taskbar"

You can also RIGHT click in an empty spot on the task bar, below the icons.

Click PROPERTIES in the dialog box.

Taskbar tab.

Click the drop down arrow for Taskbar position on screen.

Choose Bottom, click Apply, then OK.

I was able to move the taskbar around without unchecking Lock the taskbar.

Hello Queen-Evie,

 

You were able to left-click drag the Taskbar with it checked as locked? I have two Windows 7 computers and the Taskbar could not be dragged on both when Lock Taskbar was checked.

I used the method I described above. No dragging involved. Using my method it can be moved even when Lock the taskbar is checked.

When using the drag method, Lock the taskbar does have to be unchecked or it won't work.

Instead of saying I was able to MOVE without dragging I should have been more clear and say I was able to change the position of the taskbar without unlocking the taskbar.

I just presented another way to do it. Up to the OP which one to use.

My way, with pictures:
