Items stuck in taskbar. Won't open or maximize

Have new HP computer p6823w. Windows 7 64-bit.  Items such as control panel, documents, updates, etc stick in taskbar.  When click on to open to screen, they seem to fly off page.  Right click on maximize & nothing happens.  Tried all restore pts (only have a few since have only had computer 5 days), but didn't help anything.  Now today IE pages are going to taskbar & won't come out either. Any ideas??

Re: Items stuck in taskbar. Won't open or maximize

I got help with this this morning.

 

First:  Press the key with the windows icon and the letter "p" at the same time.

 

A panel with pictures of four computer acreens will pop up.  Yours is probably set to the third picture "extend."  Mine was.

 

Second:   Just click on the first panel "computer only" and you should be set.   It worked great for me.

The Windows-P hint worked like a charm for me.  This was probably the 5th "solution" I've tried to no avail.  Worked using Windows 8.
