Windows 11 is loaded with interface changes that may take users a while to adjust to. One of the easiest ones to shift is the migration of the taskbar to the center of the bottom of the screen rather than being left aligned. However, don’t worry, because if you can’t live without the Windows menu icon being in the lower left corner for you when you need it, you can always shift the Windows 11 taskbar back to being left-aligned. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
Steps to Move Windows 11 Taskbar to the Left
- Navigate to your Windows 11 home screen, and then right-click an empty spot on the taskbar to open a menu.
- Click “Taskbar Settings” in that menu. The Windows 11 taskbar personalization screen is displayed, and “Personalization” will be selected in the menu on the left side of the screen.
- Click to expand “Taskbar Behaviors” in the list of options on the right side of the screen.
- Click the drop-down to the right of Taskbar Alignment to expand it, and then click “Left” in that menu. You’ll see your Windows 11 taskbar instantly shift over to the left where it will stay going forward.
