    Taskbar switches from top to bottom?


    Windows 10 home 1909 fully up to date.
    I often find that the taskbar switches from the top of my dual monitor display (desktop PC) to the bottom on both displays even though I have the taskbars locked and setup correctly in settings. Anyone else having this problem? And is there a solution to stop this happening?

    All advice welcome!

    :)

  2. 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
      "(Recommended)”.
    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.

  3. Taskbar locks up when I switch on the computer and the computer lags Windows 10.

    Hi Shawn,

    I suggest you to check the taskbar auto-hide settings is set correctly or not as below.

    • Right click on the ‘Taskbar’ and click on ‘Properties’.
    • Under ‘Taskbar’ tab. Check the option ‘Auto-hide the taskbar’.
    • Then click on ‘Apply’ and ‘Ok’.

    If still the issue persists then, I suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I suggest you to run the System Maintenance troubleshooter as below.

    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select View all on the top left corner.
    • Click on System Maintenance.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

    Method 2: I suggest you to follow the steps from the below article and check if it helps.

    Taskbar switches from top to bottom?

    toggle to switch taskbar location from bottom to right and back

    Suggest you try simply dragging the taskbar with e.g. that command as a first step.

    Then (and I don't know quite how you'd make use of it):
