Resolving Issue of Windows® Toolbar Missing
What does one do when Windows toolbar goes missing?
When the Windows Operating System loads and the desktop appears, the toolbar might be found missing. Taskbar is very much essential for its usage. It would help to access the 'Start' button and launch 'Quick Launch' button. This is one of the common issues that arises due to improper usage and can be resolved easily. At times, it may be hidden accidentally or by user intervention. You have to modify the settings by right clicking on the taskbar space that is found out. One of the reasons for this is screen resolution. When the resolution is switched from higher to lower, one taskbar might be missed out. It may be outside the viewing area. Change to higher resolution if possible. This can be done in 'Display Properties'. In high resolution, the taskbar could be seen. Another solution is that the file, which stores toolbar, may be corrected. For doing this, delete the Toolbar settings file. Freehand file would be found in C:Documents and Settings[username]Application DataMacromediaFreeHand MX11EnglishSettingsToolBarsTools.set. You can follow simple steps to fix the problem.

Case 1- Windows Explorer not active
Sometimes Windows Taskbar/Toolbar might go missing due to Windows Explorer. The explorer may crash or stop accidentally. For resolving this issue, do the following. Go to 'Task Manager' by pressing 'Ctrl+Alt+Delete'. In the Application, select 'New Task'. In the window, enter ‘explorer’. You could now see the 'Start' button, 'Quick Launch', and 'System Tray' coming up again.
Case 2 - Minimized Taskbar
Sometimes, the Toolbar may be accidentally hidden towards the exterior of the screen. So, the Taskbar can be minimized to a small line on one side of the screen. For searching it, move around the edge of the screen looking for a double-sized arrow. When you finally get the arrow, click and drag the taskbar so that it appears again on the desktop.
Sometimes the taskbar may be auto hidden. For this, scroll the mouse over the screen to find the taskbar. Then, right click on it to select 'Properties'. Uncheck auto-hide in the taskbar.
