Greetings, I have an Inspiron 1545. When I purchased it I had a translucent shortcut bar across the top portion of my desktop. It is now gone. Any clues how to get it back. I have tried the create folder and move it to the extreme corner. That sets up a toolbar but it is isn't the same. Anyone know what I am talking about. Dell support doesn't seem to know.
Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.
There's a Lock On/Off switch at the bottom of the Gadget which slides a translucent cover over the five function keys. I am not sure about a translucent toolbar.
I also had the same problem. The bar that you are talking about is the DELL DOCK. I just got a Dell Laptop the other day and the same thing happened to me once I updated Windows with a recommended update. But after searching and searching I finally found where you can reinstall this handy tool. You need to go to www.delldock.com. That's all. I am surprised that Dell has no idea what you are talking about but it doesn't surprise me.
