No, that's the problem. There is no 'bottom', since the desktop takes up
the entire screen with no area underneath it. The control alt up arrow
doesn't work either. I did manage to rotate the whole thing but it still
took up the entire screen and the current quick launch won't move anyplace
else except in the new sidebar I have to the right of the screen.
So far, nothing works to give me what I want. Even in the help screen it
explains that the quick launch is right next to the start button, but on my
screen it is at the top right of the screen and everything else is below it
in the sidebar. There is nust nothing that I have tried so far, including
a restore, that willl give me the conventional desktop.
I do appreciate the advice I am being given even though so far none of it
