Windows has found a new way to piss me off. I was using Adobe Acrobat (no prize, itself) and when I closed it, I found that my task bar had inexplicably migrated to the top of the monitor screen. I don't want it there. I'm accustomed to having it at the bottom. So I go looking in the help and support files to find out how to put it back where it was, and though it mentions there that the task bar can be moved, the instructions on how to do so are so well hidden that I can't find them.

While trying to figure out how to get the task bar back to where it was, I tried right-clicking on it, to see if the drop down menu had any clues, and I ended up doing something else. That little bunch of hidden icons next to the clock used to open up and stay opened when I clicked on the arrow icon, but now the whole row of them will close automatically as soon as I remove the cursor from their vicinity. I have no idea how that happened either. What an utterly grotesque operating system Windows is! Bill Gates deserves to have his gizzard cut out, and then to be made to eat it.

I hate PCs.

Oh, the bugger drags and drops. The first time I tried that, it just got fat. It took about ten minutes to find the place in the help files that tells how it works. I've got it locked now, so it won't happen again. Bill can keep his gizzard installed- for the moment.
