Right click it, properties. Turn off auto-hide.
At least, thats what I think your trying to ask.
Thank you for replying with your solution, but no that doesnt work. The problem isnt the top bar where all the tabs are, its the bottom bar (perhaps its called something else?) >properties>lock>? doesnt work at all.
Ordinarily as I have a internet window open I can see the programes I have open on the bottom left, as well as speakers, time, date, Batt stats on the bottom right. But perhaps due to an "update" the other night now this "bar" dissapears when I open anything else. so I have to keep closing a window off just to view my battery status and things.
I might not be explaining it very well. sorry! any info would be grateful appreciated
