    This is how I used to have the taskbar placed on Windows 10, and since the upgrade to Windows 11, the taskbar is locked on the bottom of the screen. This is really counterproductive, and I would like to know if this is a temporary or permanent feature. Thank you..

    Can't get UEFI drive to boot - Chapter 2

    Yeah, that feature doesn't yet exist from Microsoft for 11, thus the many complaints about the new Taskbar *Sad

    I suggest you visit the 11 forums as someone there may have a solution considering yours is a hot topic *Wink

    TASKBAR in the way SOLUTION


    You can have your taskbar placed vertically to the left or the right of the screen.

    Move the taskbar

    • Right click in an unused area of the taskbar.
    • Make sure that “Lock the taskbar” is unchecked.
    • Left click and hold in that unused area of the taskbar.
    • Drag the taskbar to the side of your screen on which you want it.
    • Release the mouse.

    taskbar on multiple screens (XP)

    Hi, at work we use three screens, with XP installed, on the PC i was using before it had the taskbar on just the left screen and when i maximised a window it would fill whatever screen the window was currently on. The pc i now use, has a task bar stretched across the three screens and when i maximise something it will automatically fill the left screen. Is there a way to change either of these things as i prefer the taskbar on the left screen and to maximise on the screen the window is in. Thanks
