    Windows - 10 -- What are the consequences of locking or unlocking the taskbar?

    Fredrick B. Gruver, Dec 5, 2018

  2. Taskbar will not STAY resized, locked or unlocked

    hi, this occurs on my 4 windows 10 machines after I installed the creators update. All of my PCs have the latest version. It occurs after a restart and after a shutdown even if the taskbar is locked or unlocked. I have locked the taskbar from the settings
    menu and by right clicking the task bar. Windows Version 1703, build 15063.483.

    any suggestions?

    Thank you

  3. Windows 10 Taskbar sometimes on top of full-screen applications


    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to change the Screen Resolution and check if this helps. Follow the steps below to do the same:

    • Press ‘Windows ’ key on the keyboard.
    • In the search box, type Settings
    • SelectSystem > Display > Advanced display settings.
    • Under Resolution, select a new value. We suggest you stick with the resolution marked
    Also try locking and then unlocking the Taskbar and check if this helps. Follow the steps below:

    • Right-click an empty space on the taskbar.
    • If Lock the Taskbar has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked.
    • If it does not have a check mark, click Lock the Taskbar.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Lock or Unlock Taskbar

    vertical taskbar width

    Hi Jim,

    To be able to drag the taskbar and make it narrower the way you like it, please unlock it first.

    To do it, here are the steps:

    • Right click on the Taskbar and unlock it by unchecking the
      Lock all taskbars option.

    • Drag the edge of the bar and arrange it according to your preference.
    • Right click on the task bar and lock it again once done.
    Let us know if you need more help.
