    It is called the "taskbar." It includes the "Start" button on the left end and the clock on the right.

    You can normally move the bar by clicking on it, holding down the moue button and dragging the taskbar to a new location.

    It is possible to "lock" so it can not be moved. Right click on the taskbar and near the bottom of the menu that appears will be an option to Lock the Taskbar. Make sure that is not checked.

    That would depend on what OS you are using.

    Windows - Taskbar

    macOS - Dock

    To move the Taskbar you 1st make sure it isn't locked in position & simply drag to which side you want.

    To move the Dock right click a blank area & you'd see the option Position On Screen

    Taskbar on windows.

    You move it to the side by left clicking on a part of the taskbar that doesn’t have any icons and drag it to the side then release the left button.
