    Moving icons on Taskbar


    So, just recently I've noticed that Windows keeps moving my open taskbar icons to the right-hand end of the queue without any input from me.

    Foe example, if I open a video in Opera, with the icon to the left of a group of icons, go to full-screen, and then go back to 'normal' view the icon shoots across to the right, and the second open icon becomes the first (see pic).

    It also does it sometimes in Firefox as well.

    Not a major issue, true - but bloody annoying, and I really want to be able to stop it from occurring.

    Anyone have a 'fix'?

    :)

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.

    Moving the taskbar

    Hi Kim,

    You can customize your taskbar to pin your favorite apps to it, move it to where you want to display on your screen, and specify how taskbar buttons group together when you have more than one window open. To address your question, we suggest
    that you follow these steps on how to move your taskbar to a different location on the screen:

    • Open Settings and choose Personalization.
    • Select Taskbar.
    • Under Taskbar location on the screen, click the drop-down menu and select
      Bottom.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.

    Moving icons on Taskbar

    Trying to move desktop icon to the task bar. Cannot make it “stick” to the taskbar

    Hi,

    To assist you further, let me ask.


    • When you say “Trying to move desktop icon to the task bar”, you mean pin the excel workbook to the task bar?
    • what exactly when you try to stick the excel file to the taskbar?
    If you are trying to pin the excel workbook to the taskbar.

    Follow the steps below.


    • Click on the start menu, select the icon and right-click on the icon.

    • From the list, select pin it to taskbar or pin it to start.
    Also, you can drag the icon from the desktop and drop on the task bar.

    I hope the information is helpful and if the issue still persists, we’ll be glad to assists you.

    Thank you.
