    "start" in bottom corner after removing vistart


    Hello so I downloaded vistart to bring the menu back and was trying out some things so closed it. Now it says "start" at the bottom corner. I uninstalled vistart but it still says it.
    How do I get rid of that and put the taskbar icons back closer to where they were before I installed vistart???

    Check bottom left corner of the screenshot to see what I mean.

    Thanks

    Hi there

    Right click on Taskbar and go to the Toolbar and see if it has a check mark.
