A couple of days ago, my control strip suddenly started appearing about 2/3 of the way down the screen rather than at the bottom of the screen. I've fiddled with as many settings as I can think of, but can't get it to return to its rightful home. Help.

I know that there is an obvious solution that I'm overlooking, but I can't seem to find it. Any advice would be appreciated.

Position your cursor over the control strip, hold the option key down and a 'hand' will appear. Drag the strip to the desired position while holding down the option key.

Control strip position change generally occurs due to monitor resolution switching with games or certain programs.

Keep in mind that you can have the strip pop out from left or right side of the screen.
