If you press Ctrl-Esc, do you see it anywhere on the screen?

If you can get to 'taskbar and start menu options' make sure 'auto hide the taskbar' is not checked.

Every simple solution has been tried. The taskbar isn't hidden, and auto hide taskbar is not checked. Any suggestions?

I know its a big gun for this issue but if it happened recently it might be quicker to run Windows System Restore to a time just before the taskbar vanished. It will retain all your own files.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Might try 'keep the taskbar on top of other windows'. (Also a setting in taskbar and start menu options.)
