Change Windows® Taskbar Settings
What are the guidelines to change Windows Taskbar settings?
Windows Taskbar is the thin strip running across the bottom of users screen - from the Start button to the clock which is used to launch and monitor applications in Windows. This taskbar contains that Start Menu button, Quick Launch bar, taskbar buttons, and notification area. Taskbar also displays the list of currently running applications. There are many ways to customize the taskbar to suit user’s preferences. Users can move the entire taskbar to the left, right, or top edge of the screen; also they can change the size of the Taskbar according to their choice. The taskbar can be modified by users in several ways. The most common way is to change the settings from the Control Panel. The user can also change the Taskbar settings by right-clicking on the Taskbar which will open up the 'Taskbar properties' Window. Any change in Taskbar settings might be annoying for users as it is from there they can launch Applications and access Windows settings.
The below mentioned are few steps to change some of the Windows Taskbar Settings:
- Resize the Taskbar
- Taskbar has disappeared
- Restore default position of Taskbar
Resize the Taskbar
The Windows Taskbar size can be modified according to the user’s choice. The normal way to resize the Taskbar is by using the right button on the mouse. The user can either expand or shrink the size of the Windows Taskbar. The best way to fix the position of the Taskbar to a normal position is to lock the Taskbar, which can be set from the Taskbar properties.
Taskbar has disappeared
Windows taskbar never disappears from the screen, it just hides. It may be hiding behind other open Windows, or at the top or side of a screen. If the taskbar size is too small, it seems to be invisible. Users can resolve these issues by setting the taskbar to appear on top of other windows or ensure that auto-hide is not activated.
It is common for most of the users that they accidentally move their Taskbar to the top, right or left side of the monitor while working on their computer. The default position of the Taskbar is on the bottom of the screen. So the users can drag the Taskbar to bottom using their mouse to set it back to the normal position.
