    The Taskbar will NOT Stay Put!

    HELP!?? NO forum question on this I can find, so here goes....

    I have recently acquired a third monitor for editing AND gaming. I run 3 28" monitors in 7680x1440 using Nvidia Control Panel.

    Home Build System in huge full tower.

    Running ASUS DUAL RTX-2070 GPU

    ASUS Prime X470 MB with 32G Crucial Ballistix ram.

    AMD Ryzen 7 1700 @3.5ghz. Various HDs. Windows off a M.2 SSD

    Two Samsung 4K monitors at 2K Display Port and a BenQ at 2K on HDMI

    Windows 10 Pro 1909 Build 18363.836

    Normally everything works pretty cool except that some games have issues with the really wide screen format, but that's another issue.


    It even moves at times if I change resolution or turn on the Surround screen format, which is not often. But at times in evaluating what works best with different screen settings it screws up, but then I kinda expect that. Still, I have been using the 7680x1440 for weeks and the task bar is usually at the top of the center monitor when I start when I want it at the bottom, set it thereAND LOCK IT THERE!

    At times I boot up and it's set to the right OR left side, but mostly find it has moved to the top. Now of course it;s easy to unlock and move and lock it back. Often it stays there on a restart, Not Always, usually moves after I have SHUT DOWN.

    I have looked for any posts anywhere about this but I'm doing stuff most tech people I know do not do, and no one else posting about this.

    WHY does the task bar move around when it;s locked?

    When I am running three separate 2560x1440 screens the Taskbar stays at the bottom where I want it. At the bottom across all three

    I typically have several taskbar apps related to ASUS drivers, Nvidia Control Panel, AVAST Premium, and Rainmeter apps. Everything else stays in place as long as I don't mess with resolutions. But the Taskbar will at times not play nice and stay put!

    Hope I put more than enough tech info on when I'm running to clue something in? Likely too much? heh heh...

    Other info if needed on request. BTW, I have gone the three monitors wrapped around because for medical reasons I cannot do VR. So the wide wrapped screens are great for video editing, music editing, and games Like Elite Dangerous in a very wide format that run great this way. Next best thing to VR! AND my budget found this easier too

    ThrottleStop 8.60 Stays in Taskbar


    I have an issue with ThrottleStop 8.60 (And 8.50U) staying in the taskbar when minimizing and not going to the notification area. The notification icon is there but it is always in the taskbar too. If I check 'Minimize on Close it still stays in the taskbar. Is this a bug or does anyone know how to get it off my taskbar and only in the notification bar?

    System Icons on taskbar


    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.

    OneDrive files won't stay pinned to taskbar

    If a pin an excel files that is saved in my OneDrive folder to the pinned excel files list in the taskbar, once I open that file it disappears from the pinned list. This only happens with files saved in the OneDrive folder. Any files saved in my documents
    remain pinned to the taskbar. How can I get the OneDrive files to stay pinned? They stayed pinned before but just started disappearing this last week.
