Anyone know how to get the tool bar from the side to back on bottom easily? Ive spent an hour on and off trying to grab that bastard and get it back where it belongs. It got to the side by accident quite easily of course. thank you

On mine it works pretty easily. I click and hold in the blank area where the little boxes come up when you run a program. and drag over to the side and it goes over there. The same works going back too. I am running Win 98

Which toolbar are you talking about? The taskbar (shows open running programs)? If this is the case, just left-click and hold (in an empty part of the task bar) and then move the mouse to the bottom of your screen and release the left-click button.

Point your mouse on the top line( it will have a up-down arrow) and just left-click drag it down.

That doesn't change the size of the icons for me, it just changes the bottom of the large window.
To change the icon size, right click on the geay area of the tool bar, left click on "VIE" and choose "Small Icons".

Troy...~~~ Works for me.

Make sure you point the mouse on a blank spot.
Try hitting alt (hold it down) then tab to switch to whatever is opened and close them.
