    hope i can explain this properly?

    the start up icons that are usually displayed on the task bar and
    beside the <start> button, are now located on the right hand side of
    the task bar beside the task tray.

    the default has always been that they display beside the <start>
    button, how can i return to that default, not sure what happened to
    cause the change.

    tia

    You did.
    Right mouse click below the start button and unlock
    the toolbars if they are locked, likely they wont be.

    You will now see 'handles' at the start of each of the two
    components of what you call the task bar. You can use
    those 'handles' to drag each one where you want it.

    It can be easier if you drag the top border of the taskbar
    up one row so each is on a line of its own. You can pull
    it down again once you have got it the way you want.

    Dont forget to lock the toolbars again when you are finished.
    It isnt hard to drag one accidentally.
    Thats why the lock showed up later.

  4. Right click on any vacant area of the taskbar, and its should be one of the
    options in a list, when active a tick will appear next to it.

    Right mouse click UNDER the start button, it should be
    one of the bottom entrys in the popup menu you get.

    Wasnt always there, so if you are running
    an older version of Win9* it may be missing.
