Customer Question
I guess I messed...

I guess I messed up my desktop. Usually the small icons are on the left of the screen and my task bar in the bottom of the screen. I guess I touched the wrong button on my settings and the task bar is on the top of the screen andwhat I have in the desk top are big tiles with titles. Can you help, please?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your laptop?

It's a PC HP Pavilion.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Pavilion? Have you installed any updates recently?

No, like I said I went to settings and truthfully I didn't know what I did that the task bar is at the top and my file icons. disappeared from the desktop.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Some thing with my email display.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
