How to re-position the taskbar in Windows 10 to the top or sides of the screen

Fahad Al-Riyami

For years, the taskbar in Windows has always been positioned at the bottom of the screen. But, it doesn’t have to stay that way, you might prefer to have it at the top of the screen, or on the sides to maximize vertical screen real-estate. If you are new to the operating system, here’s how to change its position of the taskbar in Windows 10 (or any version of Windows for that matter):

Step 1: Right-click the taskbar and click “Properties”

Step 2: Under the “Taskbar” tab, find “Taskbar location on screen”

Step 3: Change it to where you want the taskbar to be positioned

There you go, let us know in the comments section below where you prefer to have the taskbar positioned. You can always drag and move the taskbar around to different positions on your screen as long as the taskbar is unlocked. Personally, I’ve only ever used Windows with the taskbar at the bottom, but I know people who absolutely have to have it at the top. Aren’t options great?
