  1. Permanently lock task bar to right screen with multiple user accounts?


    On my home PC I run 2 screens, and also 2 user accounts, one for my wife and I and one for my son. When it's logged into my account, I always keep the task bar locked to the right screen, because I run CAD and 3D design software on my left screen (left screen set to primary) and prefer to have the maximum resolution height on that screen. Plus it's what I'm used to at the office.

    Problem is that whenever my son switches to his profile, and then I switch back to mine, the task bar ends up on the left screen again. I have tried setting it to the right screen on BOTH profiles, locking, but still at every single login of either profile, the task bar ends up on the left screen.

    Is there anything I can do here? Having to unlock the TB, move it and then re-lock it every single time I log in is super annoying!

    :)

    I would suggest you to start the computer with hidden admin.



    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. This helps us in identifying whether the issue is due to some third party
    programs conflict. The word Safe mode appear in the concern of your monitor to identify which windows mode you are using.

    Step 1: Safe mode



    • Type settings in search and click on Settings.
    • Click Update and recovery, and then tap or
      click Recovery.
    • Under Advanced startup, tap or click Restart now.
    • Once your PC restarts, on the Choose an option screen, tap or click
      Troubleshoot.
    • If you don't see the Startup Settings option, tap or click advanced options.
    • Tap or click Startup Settings.
    • Tap or click Restart.
    • On the Startup Settings screen, choose the Safe Mode.
    • Sign in to your PC with a user account that has administrator rights.


    Step 2: Active hidden admin account

    • Press Windows + R key on the keyboard.
    • Type cmd in the run bar.
    • In Command Prompt type this command: net user administrator /active:yes
    • Press Enter and Restart the computer.
    Try to create new user account now.

    If you are able to do so deactivate the hidden admin account.

    For that follow the step :

    • Press Windows + R key on the keyboard.
    • Type cmd in the run bar.
    • In Command Prompt type this command: net user administrator /active:no
