Windows 7: How to Move the Taskbar

by Jeff Ferdinand

Those that like to live dangerously will appreciate this information. Really, who wants to have their taskbar in the same old boring place day after day?

If you can’t stand the thought of your taskbar in some new place check out one of the other tutorials, but if you crave a bit of variety please continue.

This tutorial is fairly short and sweet, actually just two steps. I do leave you with the location to find more information on the taskbar, all on your computer.

Let’s dive into the two steps. I haven’t included a quickstep for this one because it is almost as fast to just do it this way, but keep in mind there are always alternate paths to the same destination in Windows.

Step 1: Right click in an empty space on your taskbar and choose “Properties”.

Step 2: Click on the drop down arrow just to the right of “Taskbar location on screen”. There you can choose to have it on the bottom, top, leftside or rightside.  Moving the taskbar can be even more fun if you have to share a computer, especially if you don’t tell anyone you moved it!

This is not a step, but if you look at the image above you see “How do I customize the taskbar?”, circled in red with an arrow beside it. When you are moving your taskbar if you click on that in your window you will get more information on what you can do with the taskbar. Take a peek and have fun!

  1. Is there anyone out there using Windows who doesn’t know how to relocate the taskbar? It’s not like this is new in Windows 7. That option has been there for a long time and it’s been simple to do for a long time.

  2. It’s easy to presume that everyone else has the same level of tech knowledge as yourself, but it’s surprising how little someone might know unless they’ve actually had to address an issue.
