Occasionally, my spam filter grabs a good message and misclassifies it. Such was the case with this question from Bill Bixler.
Fortunately, I’m aware of Murphy’s Law of Email: "The more important an email is, the more likely it is to be misclassified as spam."
So, I routinely review the contents of my spam folder before deleting it. The most blatant spam is automatically filtered at my web host’s mailserver. I finally gave in and allow it to delete automatically if the evaluation meets certain criteria that I have set.
Anyway, Bill wrote to ask about a Windows 7 problem that he’s been having:
I have worked in the Electronics Technology field since 1963, and I have yet to figure out how to move the PC Dock, on the Desktop in Windows 7! I have been a Christian for more than 36 years and I am veeery frustrated with this situation. Thank You, in advance!

I wrote back to Bill to say that I assume by "Dock" that he’s referring to the Windows Taskbar that is, by default, at the bottom of the Windows Desktop.
You can move it from the bottom to the top of the Desktop or to either side.
Assuming you have your mouse configured normally, and not set for "left-handed" use, left-click and hold down the mouse button on a blank part of the Windows Taskbar.
While holding down the mouse button, drag the Taskbar to top, right or left-hand side.
If it won’t move, then you, or someone else using your computer, may have locked the Taskbar to prevent it from being moved.
In that case, right-click on a blank part of the Taskbar. In the context menu that appears, uncheck "Lock the taskbar."
