Where is the taskbar in Windows 11

Hello Guys, In this post I want to show you how you can find Taskbar in Windows 11 and Customize It.

Windows 11 doesn’t offer an overwhelming amount of new features and there are just a couple that people may wish to update for. This is despite the fact that Windows 11 is a free upgrade for Windows 10 customers. One important, and very evident change between Windows 11 and Windows 10 is the design.

Windows 11 has a fresh look, and it includes updates to some of the most popular Windows functions. So Without Wasting any time Let’s take a look at Where is the Taskbar in Windows 11.

Where is the Taskbar in Windows 11

The taskbar is the bar that displays at the bottom of the screen by default. It extends from one screen edge to the other. The Start button is in the left corner, and the system tray, which consists of a set of icons and a clock, is in the right corner.

Windows 11 still has a taskbar, and it’s located at the bottom of the screen, just where you’d expect it to be. It now operates a bit differently, for example, you can’t right-click it to launch the task manager, and the start button, along with all other pinned programmers, is in the middle rather than on the left.

Customize Taskbar on Windows 11

If you like the way the taskbar operated in previous versions of Windows and want the taskbar in Windows 11 to seem more like the taskbar in Windows 10, you may change its design.

The Start button, as well as the pinned applications, may be moved back to the left.

  1. The Win+I keyboard shortcut will launch the Settings app.
  2. Go to the Personalization page.
  3. Choose Taskbar.
  4. Expand the Taskbar’s capabilities.
  5. Select Left from the Taskbar Alignment dropdown.

To get rid of the taskbar’s icons/widgets;

  • Using the Win+I keyboard shortcut, open the Settings app.
  • Go to the Personalization section.
  • Choose Taskbar.
  • Turn the Widgets switch off to disable widgets.
  • Turn the Chat switch off to hide Teams.

To customize the system tray;

  1. Using the Win+I keyboard shortcut, open the Settings app.
  2. Go to the Personalization section.
  3. Choose Taskbar.
  4. Expand the icons in the Taskbar’s corners.
  5. Turn on or off the icons for the Pen menu, Touch keyboard, and Virtual touchpad.
  6. Overflow in the Taskbar corner may be expanded.
  7. Choose which icons will be shown in the system tray.
  8. Turn off any icons you don’t want to see in the system tray.


The majority of Windows 11’s ‘new’ taskbar behavior is reversible. The context menu is the sole exception. There is currently no way to restore the taskbar context menu, no matter what you do. You can only change the taskbar settings; nothing else is accessible. Until someone creates a third-party software for the purpose, access to the task manager from the taskbar is gone.
