Why I Dislike The Windows 11 Taskbar (Short Video)

Overall I like Windows 11, but they seriously messed up the taskbar. Microsoft decided to FIX it to the bottom of the screen. You can’t move it.

In this short video I discuss what you CAN now do with the taskbar (which is not very much – basically you can move the tray icons a bit), and I also discuss two methods of restoring the old taskbar functionality. This involves one bit of free software (ExplorerPatcher) or a paid-for rival called Start11 which is easier to use but costs $7.

Would this put you off upgrading to Windows 11?
