NM. I did some research and found out. In case any other newbies run into this problem, all you is R/C (right-click) on the status bar and choose Add New Panel. When the box comes up, you scroll down to "Windows List", and click on it to add it back on. I also found other goodies to use, like a couple of buttons to let me log off or shut/restart my system without going to a menu pressing Control-Alt-Delete. While that's more reminiscent of Windoze, not all ideas Microsoft are bad.....just most of the OSes
. Though I have to say, If I was gonna stay with MS, Win2000Pro would by choose. Thank goodness I have to stay with just MS. Anyways, I've gotten off-topic. Thanks for all the help and if anyone else needs help and I just happen to know something about the subject, I'd be more than happy to lend a hand.
Merry met, merry part, and may we merry meet again.
