In Windows 11, the taskbar can only be moved to the left and centred, unlike in Windows 10, where it was possible to move the taskbar to all sides of the monitor. In this tutorial, how to use the Registry Editor to move the taskbar in Windows 11 to the top edge of the monitor.
Make the taskbar top-aligned in Windows 11:
- Press Win + R and enter regedit, then follow the path:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ StuckRects3
- On the right, double-click on Settings.
- On row 00000008 and column FE, you have default value 03.
- Replace with 01, so the taskbar is on top.
- Restart your PC or restart File Explorer in Task Manager
Note: If you want to return the taskbar to the bottom edge as it was, then set the value 03. Also, it cannot be done on the sides.
