Microsoft is finally getting ready to offer Windows 11 users the feature that we questioned the most about why it wasn't in Windows 11.
According to a new tip in the preview release, after a long wait, Windows 11 may allow users to swipe the taskbar in different directions on the desktop instead of locking it to the bottom of the screen as in Windows 10.
Famous Microsoft leakster Albacore showed in a post on Twitter that it is possible to make the taskbar appear at the top of the screen with some minor tweaks to Windows 11 preview build 25309.
As shown in the tweet, this use of the taskbar is still not without problems. Although it is located at the top of the screen, when you click on the icons in the bar, their respective functions are revealed at the bottom of the screen, where they appear by default.
So, it looks like Microsoft is laying the groundwork for a portable taskbar in the current preview, but it seems like this work is really in the very early stages for now.
Turns out you can position the fully XAML taskbar up top, the experience is not all that great though 😅 pic.twitter.com/NmGjOVK0gR— Albacore (@thebookisclosed) March 6, 2023
