How to Set up a Vertical Taskbar in Windows 11?

Posted by

Windows 11 has limited options to customize the taskbar, such as you can’t drop an application to the taskbar to Pin it. Similarly, Windows 11 Taskbar is locked by default, and you can’t move it to any location on your screen as you wish. Likewise, you can’t move the taskbar to a vertical position if you need. It’s challenging to customize the taskbar as per their preferences.

Earlier, we had introduced Linkbar, which comes with many features; however, in this gearupwindows article, I will introduce another freeware tool that is known as StartAllBack.
