hi,
my computers start menu/bar (at the very bottom) has not been working for a long time now. When i have a window up, the tab at the bottom never opens, so i can't quickly flick through the windows any more. I have been putting up with the problem by using "alt" and "tab" to flick from screen to screen.
I have tried altering the bar but te tabs still dont come up and have also tried going into the "task bar and start menu properties", which i have searched high and low, but dosnt help.
Thnx

EDIT: does the start bar show up at all or can see it for like 1 second and it goes away?

when you do have the start bar up (alt +tab) right click the bar and go to properties. you might have auto-hide checked off.

Do you have the programs grouping themselves together? If they are, try to disable the grouping feature. Here's how:

Right-click a blank spot on the taskbar, and click Properties. Uncheck "Group Similar Taskbar Icons". Click Apply, then OK.
