Move the Taskbar

Note: Video may contain information not found in written tip

Are you fed up with where your taskbar sits on your desktop? Do you wish you could move it somewhere else? What about if you use more than one monitor and want to move your taskbar to the other side?

Well, good news! It’s super easy to move your taskbar to almost anywhere on your desktop!

First, make sure your taskbar is unlocked. If you’re not sure if it is or not, right click on a blank area of the taskbar and make sure the option to “Lock the Taskbar” is unchecked.


After that, grab an open area of the taskbar and just drag it to wherever you want. This could be to the top or sides of your screen, or even over to the other monitor (if you’re using two, that is…).

If you ever want to move it around, just grab an open area of it again and drag it to its new position. I kind of like to have mine docked on the side of my monitor. To me, it’s more convenient and it spices up the desktop area too! You have to admit this is pretty cool. Give it a shot!
