If you’re the type of Windows 10 user who likes to spice things up, why not move the taskbar to a new location – like the top of the screen? Once there, it works exactly as you expect, including the Start menu. It’s also a great party trick. Here̵
First right-click on the taskbar and uncheck “Lock taskbar” in the menu that appears. This allows you to move the taskbar to a new location.
When the taskbar is unlocked, click the taskbar and drag it to the top of the screen, then release the mouse or trackpad button.
Once you have let go, the taskbar will live happily up there for as long as you want, and defy gravity continuously.
You will notice that when the taskbar is at the top of the screen, it works exactly as it did when it was at the bottom, only with a different direction. You can even open the Start menu and it comes down from above.
While you’re at it, feel free to experiment with other taskbar locations – such as a vertical orientation on the left or right side of the screen. Few people know this, but you can change the height of the taskbar while it is unlocked.
When you are finished, you may want to lock the taskbar in place so that you do not accidentally move it. Just right-click on the taskbar and put a check mark next to “Lock the taskbar” in the context menu. Have fun customizing Windows!
