    Vertical Taskbar Windows 11


    When will a patch enabling vertical Taskbar be released?I just downloaded Windows 11 only to discover I can't have a vertical taskbar - on a wide screen display! That is the first thing I tried to do when I logged in for the first time.This is a deal breaker.I am reverting back to Windows 10 until there is a fix.

    :)

    vertical taskbar width

    Hi Jim,

    To be able to drag the taskbar and make it narrower the way you like it, please unlock it first.

    To do it, here are the steps:

    • Right click on the Taskbar and unlock it by unchecking the
      Lock all taskbars option.

    • Drag the edge of the bar and arrange it according to your preference.
    • Right click on the task bar and lock it again once done.
    Let us know if you need more help.

    Regards.

  3. How to keep vertical taskbar underneath windows


    Hello everyone

    I have a vertical taskbar on the lefthand side. In Windows XP and Windows 7, with a vertical taskbar, if I moved a window towards the taskbar, the taskbar would go underneath the window (i.e. the window would go on top of the taskbar). In Windows 10, however, any window that I move towards the taskbar slides in underneath the taskbar. This reduces the useable width of my screen. Is there a way to get Windows to let the vertical taskbar behave like the horizontal one, i.e. that windows move over it, not underneath it?

    Thanks
    Samuel

    Added: Oh, wait, the AHK script win7taskbar-gl.ahk that I used with Windows 7 actually works. I'm not sure what the download URL for it is, though.

    Multiple columns in vertical taskbar?

    Is there any chance/hack/possibility to have multiple columns when locating the taskbar on the side of the desktop?
    I mean, when vertical, no matter how thick the taskbar is made, there is always only one icons column and one needs to scroll it, when those do not fit:

    The only thing I found on the Net related to this is this topic:
    taskbar doesn't stack when vertical? - Windows 7 Help Forums
    But - first - I totally don't get this patent with a folder (?), and second - there are some years that passed, maybe, finally, there is a way to do this...? Or any taskbar tweaker, skin, whatever...?
