This eliminates the need to search for apps whenever you want to open them. If you want to change the location of the taskbar on the screen, here is how to do that:

  • Click on the Start button
  • Next, click on the gear icon to access the Settings

  • In Settings, choose Personalization
  • Now click on the taskbar
  • You can also access the Taskbar settings by right-clicking on the taskbar and choosing Taskbar settings

  • Find the option “Taskbar location on screen.”
  • As you can see, the option set by default is “Bottom.”
  • Click on that and you will get to choose between Bottom, Top, Right, Left
  • Choose the option that you want
  • The taskbar will instantly move

Once you make changes and choose the option “right,” for example, the taskbar will move there.

If that looks cool to you and you want to try it out, follow the steps listed above and move the taskbar on the screen for a new experience.
