Windows is a very popular and one of the most advanced operating system in use. The Windows Operating System is has many versions and most of them are based on a common working platform. The Windows desktop is a combination of features that helps manage different system options in a better way. The Windows desktop is having many components and the taskbar is one the most important one among them. The Windows taskbar is a component that displays the status of the system and allows users to integrate programs and applications for quickly launching them later. The taskbar in Windows can grow big or seems to be disproportionate to the desktop due to many reasons.
Discussed below are some points that will help users to fix issues with taskbar in Windows:
- Remove unwanted icons
- Resize taskbar
- Reconfigure display settings
Remove unwanted icons
Piling up of unwanted icons and toolbars can cause the taskbar in Windows systems to look big or resize automatically to accommodate the pinned shortcuts. Users who are having such issues are advised to remove unwanted toolbars and icons from the Windows taskbar. Windows will automatically reduce the taskbar size when done so and will hence solve the issue.
The Windows taskbar is resizable and can be expanded to meet the user preferences. Dragging the taskbar end using the pointer will increase and decrease its size. The users who are having issues with the taskbar should therefore unselect the lock taskbar option and then drag the bar downwards so as to reduce its size. This will help solve issues with the Windows desktop component.
Improper configuring the Windows display settings and using incompatible desktop enhancement software can also lead to issues with the taskbar. Users having issues with the taskbar are therefore advised to reconfigure the settings to match with the recommended ones and uninstall or suspend desktop enhancement software. Doing so will fix issues with the Windows taskbar.
