Please help. Someone recently used my laptop and now I have no bar on the bottom of my screen where the time/date internet connection, battery power indicator, search bar and icons for media player google chrome browser etc.
When I click the windows icon on the keypad I get to the start menu, which has the bar on the bottom, but then when I click on the google browser icon its back to where the bar is gone.
Help please.
Also, the windows that I do get now (minus the bar on the bottom) has a black background and no red X that allows me to shut down all windows.
Thank you!

I don't have or know windows 8 but you likely have HP assistant on your desktop or programs. Go there and type; recover hidden task bar in search window. That should tell you how to do it. Remember HP assistant program in the future and explore it.
