SOURCE: Icons and Start tool bar disappearing every few seconds

Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.

SOURCE: taskbar and start menu disappear

Move the mouse to the bottom of the screen to make the taskbar reappear. If you want this to display at all times, right-click on any blank area of the taskbar and select Properties. Clear the checkbox next to Auto-hide the taskbar.

How to move icons from left side to bottom of screen


On all windows apart from Windows 8, you drag them from the desktop (left hand side) to the bottom (taskbar) with the mouse.

If the taskbar gets full up the icons might disappear.
The double bar at the end of the taskbar must be moved to the right for more of the taskbar to appear.

How to enlarge the icons on the toolbar


If you mean enlarging the task bar items please follow the following steps:

1-Access the Taskbar and Start Menu. This particular menu will allow you to customize your taskbar features and resize the icons. Click on the Start menu, or Windows logo, from within your taskbar.

2-Select "Control Panel," then select "Appearance and Personalization." On some Windows 7 computers, this option may also read as "Appearance."

3-Click on "Taskbar and Start Menu." This will open a Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box on your screen.

4-Change the size of the taskbar icons. Place a checkmark next to "Use small icons" within the Taskbar Appearance section to make your taskbar icons appear smaller.

5-Click directly on the checkmark if one is already present to enlarge the size of your taskbar icons.

6-Save your taskbar icon customization settings. Your new taskbar settings will go into effect immediately. Click on the "Apply" button to save your changes, then click "OK" to exit from the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties menu.

My icon for the battery power monitor has dissapeared from my taskbar can you help me get it back please


Do you have Windows 7? If so, you can right-click on the bottom right corner of your desktop (try right-clicking the time/date), where the icons for volume control, wireless, battery, etc... should be and select Properties. You should then see a screen where you can turn on/off the icons/notifications for battery power (sometimes my volume control disappears and i have to do this.
Otherwise you can go here, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and you should find the same thing. Then just turn on your battery power icon/notifications.
Hope this helps.

Has anyone had any luck with getting on internet mine say can not associate


This worked for me:


Click on the little TV, the RT28701 box will appear. Select the "Wireless Information" tab and highlight your network connection, then click the "Advanced" tab. Check "Use Windows to configure my wireless settings" and the "Automatically connect to non-preferred networks" boxes. "Networks to Access" should read All Available.


Next, double click your highlighted network connection. The "Wireless Networks Properties" box will appear. Make sure the Network Name (SSID) is your network connection.


Under "Wireless Network Key (WEP)" box the information should read:


"Encryption: WEP"; "Authentication: Open"; "Network Key: (the number on your modem)"; "Key index: 1"


All the little boxes should not have checkmarks in them.


Click OK which will return you to the RT28701 box. Click OK again to return to the desktop. Click "Start" tab to shut down netbook and then restart. Turn Wifi on by holding down F9 function key for about 5-10 seconds, or double click Wifi icon and then click the Power On box, which will turn it on. Wait for little tv to show up on bottom taskbar and the red x to disappear from it. Then, click Internet Explorer and it should connect.
