I don't know what happened, but I clicked a few things and now my taskbar at the bottom doesn't show anything. It used to have little boxes that said what each page was, but now it is completely clean.

What can I do to get it back to normal?

See Kellys-Korner, number 117 on the left.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I'm a little confused - nothing new there - regarding what you are saying.

"little boxes that said what each page was" - what exactly do you mean - each "page" of what?


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Well, I don't know the termonology, but the boxes that are on the start taskbar at the bottom? Depending on the programs up, there can be an internet explorer one, a word one, itunes... on so on depending what program is opened and then you click on the box on the bar to maximize the page. I don't know how else to describe it.

That's OK - you've described it perfectly. I just wanted to make sure that what I was hearing was what you meant.

Please see my signature element, below.

Haha I understand. After re-reading my first post, I realized it was pretty unclear anyway.

Do you know what the problem is?

Did you try Budapest's link?

Is this the only problem you are having with that PC?

I tried it and it worked! Thanks Budapest.

I am having trouble burning CDs because the computer wont recognize my blank CD to burn stuff to it. I have another post going on that though, so I guess we'll see if it helps.
