The taskbar in Windows 11 shows the Start menu,Â Search,Â Task View,Â Widgets,Â Chat, File Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and Microsoft Store buttons (icons)Â aligned to the centerÂ by default.
If you have more than one display connected to your PC, then you canÂ show the taskbar on all displaysÂ instead of just on theÂ main display.
The main taskbar is the taskbar with the clock and taskbar corner icons on it, and is on yourÂ main display. Taskbars that show on other displays not set as yourÂ main displayÂ do have theÂ clockÂ (if turned on), but do not have the taskbar corner icons on them.
WhenÂ Show my taskbar on all displaysÂ is turned on when using multiple displays, you can select to show your taskbar apps on one of the following:
- All taskbarsÂ =Â PinnedÂ and open apps will show their icon on all taskbars on all displays.
- Main taskbar and taskbar where window is openÂ =Â PinnedÂ apps will only show on the main taskbar. Icons for open apps will show on both the main taskbar and the taskbar on the display where the window is open.
- Taskbar where window is openÂ =Â PinnedÂ apps will only show on the main taskbar. Icons for open apps will only show on the taskbar on the display where the window is open.
This tutorial will show you how to change which taskbar to show taskbar apps on when using multiple displays for your account in Windows 11.
