Right-click the taskbar and check to see if there is a tick next to 'lock the task bar'. If there is, click on this option to remove the tick. Click and hold on any empty area of the taskbar. While you hold the mouse button you can then drag the taskbar from the top to the bottom, or even to the sides of the screen. When the taskbar is where you want it, right-click again and select 'lock the taskbar' to stop it accidentally being moved again.
