    No option to change the location of taskbar reminders?!!


    To be clear, I strongly prefer Windows over Mac, but the one nagging thing on Windows for me is the taskbar notifications are on the bottom-right with no way to move them! On Mac, they are on the top-right of the screen.This may sound like complaining just for the sake of a personal preference, but I assure you... Having used both Mac and Windows, notifications on the top-right of the screen are FAR LESS LIKELY to impede workflow and block things you are trying to do. On Windows, the notifications frequently cover areas where I'm trying to work. This happens much less frequently on Mac.And n

  2. Taskbar location

    Hi Todd,

    Sudden changes in the location of the taskbar can occur due to misconfiguration in Windows settings. But you don't have to worry, you can modify the location where the taskbar will be displayed. Follow these steps to change the location of your taskbar:

    • Right click on your taskbar.
    • Choose Taskbar settings.
    • Look for Taskbar location on screen. The drop-down button under it will let you choose your preferred location for the taskbar.

  3. Change the location of taskbar on multiple display Windows 10

    Hello Peter,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Let me answer your query regarding taskbar location on multiple displays.

    Do you have multiple monitors connected to the same computer?

    Please be informed that right now there is no option to change the location of taskbar to the scenario which you mentioned.

    As this is the option you would like to see in windows 10, you may provide your suggestions in the feedback app.

    It will be directly referred by our developer’s team for further improvement.

    Follow the steps:

    • Go to Start, enter the phrase Windows Feedback, and then select Windows Feedback.
    • See if someone else has given similar feedback by entering the topic, such as Microsoft Music.
    • If you find similar feedback, select it, add any details, and then select Me too.
    • To narrow your search to a specific category, pick the category that most closely matches your feedback (so it gets to the right people quickly). For example, for feedback about the Music app, select Apps > Music.
    • If you don’t find any similar feedback, select New Feedback, and choose a topic from Select a category and then select a subcategory.
    • Enter your feedback (the more details the better!), add a screenshot if you can, and you're done.
    However you may follow the below steps to change the location of the taskbar (changes the location on both the monitors to same place) and check.

    1. Right click on the taskbar and click on properties.

    2. Select the taskbar tab.

    3. In the “Taskbar location on the screen” drop down list you may select your preferred location and click on apply.

    Hope the information helps, do reply if you need further assistance.

    Thank you.
