  1. Permanently lock taskbar 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!

    :)

    Windows 10 Taskbar sometimes on top of full-screen applications

    Hi,

    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.
