Windows Taskbar Options

I’m sure we’ve got a few different tips that show you all the stuff you can do to your Windows Task Bar, but I wanted to get them all in one place for convenience.

So, right-click a blank area of your taskbar and select Properties. In the resulting window, make sure the “Taskbar” tab is selected.

Under Taskbar appearance you’ll see:

Lock the taskbar – Obviously named. If this is selected, you cannot re-size or move your taskbar. This is perfect for folks who find their taskbar on top of their screen one day and can’t remember why.

Auto-hide the taskbar – Great for the neat-freak who wants a perfectly blank desktop. Select Auto-hide and your taskbar with peek-a-boo when you mouse-over the bottom portion of the screen.

Use small icons – If you think the icons on your taskbar are too big, then select this option.

Depending on which version of Windows you have, there may also be an option to relocate your taskbar on the screen (you can also click, hold and drag your taskbar to a different place, too!) as well as a drop-down box to set whether or not open taskbar buttons combine when more than one instance of the program is open.

I hope this enlightens you on all the things you can do with your Windows Taskbar!
