If you are using a dual monitor setup, Windows 11 allows you to display your Taskbar on both monitors. However, due to some reasons, if you want to hide the taskbar on secondary monitors, it is also possible.

When you have a dual monitor set up on your PC or just connect your laptop to a second monitor, you might not want to see the taskbar everywhere. You might want to hide the taskbar from your second monitor in such cases. For example, you want a full-screen experience on your second monitor, and you don’t want to see the taskbar there.

By default, the taskbar remains visible on both of your monitors, and you need to uncheck the option to hide the taskbar on secondary monitors.
