Toolbar at top of desktop screen missing

Good evening.

I am new to the community and please excuse me if I have placed this thread in the wrong place.

I have a Dell studio laptop and I appear to have lost the toolbar that appeared across the top of the screen.

This toolbar contained the likes of shortcuts for internet, e-mail, word, webcam, dell etc.

Can anyone please provide advice to how I can re-install this toolbar?

Thank you in advance.

Andy.

Andy,

 

I think you're talking about Dell Dock

 

If you have trouble installing it, please let me know.

Thank you for the information.

Dell dock is what I was looking for. I have found it in my "program files" folder.

When I run the application it came back. However, when I restarted laptop it had gone again.

I believe I need to add it to the start up menu - how do I do that?

Thanks again,

Andy.

Andy,

 

Go to start, control panel, programs and features and uninstall Dell dock, then restart your computer.

 

Download and install  Search Everything When it starts, give it a chance to scan. After you see a bunch of foldewrs in it, type

 

Dell Dock

 

It will give you a few listings. Delete them all except the installation program.

 

Now try installing Dell Dock. The installation should work this time and should appear every time you start your computer.

Re: Toolbar at top of desktop screen missing

Hi

I installed DellDock and I think it is great!  But, when I got my Dell and when I opened Internet there was a thing below the toolbar that had links to email, messenger, etc. It looked a lot like Dell Dock but it appered on the internet. I pushed some button and now it is gone, how do I get it back?

 

Thanks,

Julia

Hi Julia,

I believe you mean the command bar. Hover your mouse curosr at the top bar of internet explorer and right click, then select command bar.

Re: Toolbar at top of desktop screen missing

I just reinstalled Dell Dock onto my computer. When I first got the computer there was an icon on the Dell Dock toolbar that was a shortcut to my webcam. Ever since my computer got cleaned and my Dell Dock got deleted, I haven't been able to figure out how to open up my webcam. I was hoping that by reinstalling it, the shortcut would be there too but it isn't. How can I get the shortcut back?
