In this tutorial, I have mentioned a step-by-step guide to change Taskbar position in Windows 11. It is kind of upsetting that Microsoft has removed a lot of Taskbar options from this new version of Windows. You cannot move the Taskbar to up or left or right locations. But I have a registry Tweak that can help you to do that.

If you have upgraded Windows 10 to 11 and now many to have the taskbar at top, then I will show you how to do that. Here’s basically a batch file that you can execute to have Taskbar positioned at the desired location. Even though, it can move it to left or right side of the screen, but it will break the Taskbar icons.

For best results, you can only move the Taskbar up and have it back to bottom again easily.
