    Do you mean Toolbar or Taskbar ?

    Taskbar is at the bottom of the screen.

    "Pin to taskbar" from the file or program itself.

    What browser are you using ?

    A full screenshot would help diagnose the problem.
    Please post one.
    There are tutorials on screenshots in my signature.

    The easiest way is to hit the Print Screen key & open Paint & Paste it in & Save as a png to Desktop & attach it to your post.

    You did good making the screenshots.
    They appear small because they are automatically resized in the post.
    You just need to click on one to make it bigger.

    I see you use Google toolbar.
    On the far right is gear icon.
    I would suggest clicking it & resetting the toolbar to its' defaults.

    Then add whatever extra buttons you want.
    & test them to see if they work.

    Print would probably be on the Main bar.

    Right click the various bars & try to find it.
    I use Opera.
    & sometimes Chrome.
    What do you use ?
