Customizing the Taskbar

The taskbar is initially located at the bottom of the Windows desktop and is most often used to switch from one program to another. As with other Windows elements, you can customize the taskbar; for example, you can change its size and location, customize its display, or add or remove toolbars to help you perform the tasks you need to do. If you need more room on the screen to display a window, Auto-hide can be used to hide the taskbar when it's not in use. If icons in the notification area are hidden when you want to see them, you can customize the notification area to always show the icons you want to use.

Customize the Taskbar

Right-click a blank area on the taskbar, and then click Properties.

Click the Taskbar tab.

Select the Auto-hide The Taskbar check box to hide the taskbar when you're not using it.

The taskbar appears when you move the mouse to where the taskbar would appear.

Select the Keep The Taskbar On Top Of Other Windows check box to keep the taskbar available.

Select the Group Similar Taskbar Buttons check box to have similar windows grouped together in one button when the taskbar is crowded.

Select the Show Quick Launch check box to display the Quick Launch toolbar.

Click OK.
