Windows 10: toggle to switch taskbar location from bottom to right and back

Discus and support toggle to switch taskbar location from bottom to right and back in Windows 10 Support to solve the problem; I know how to do it in several steps, but it would be ideal if it could be achieved by a hotkey or a batchfile. Do either exist ? 128451 Discussion in 'Windows 10 Support' started by Sebastian42, Mar 7, 2019.

  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. Pesky Taskbar

    Hi Watson,



    This behavior of your Taskbar is part of the settings set on your computer.



    To automatically hide your Taskbar, follow the steps below:

    • Right click on the Taskbar.
    • Select Taskbar settings.
    • Toggle the switch to on for Automatically hide the Taskbar in desktop mode.


    Note that it’s not permanently hidden, it’s just hidden if the pointer is away from it.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted for other concerns if you have any.

    toggle to switch taskbar location from bottom to right and back

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?
