Tech Tip: Customize Taskbar in Windows 10

Along the bottom of your screen in Windows 10, you’ll see the windows button, a search bar, a clock and calendar, and any icons that you have pinned. This is the taskbar, and it allows for easy access to the programs that you use the most. There are several options to customize the taskbar to your preferred configuration.

To change the location of the taskbar, right-click anywhere on the bar. Uncheck Lock all taskbars. Then click and drag the taskbar to your chosen edge of the screen. It will snap into place. Right-click it again and check Lock all taskbars.

To make the taskbar icons smaller, right-click the taskbar and click Properties. Check Use small taskbar buttons, then click Apply. The taskbar icons will become smaller, providing more space for additional icons. Click OK to save your settings.

To change the color of the taskbar, click the Windows icon and select Settings. Click Personalization, then click the Colors option on the sidebar. Scroll down and select a color tile that you like. Under the tiles, toggle on the switch for Show color on Start, taskbar, action center, and title bar. Your taskbar will now be whatever color you selected.
