Windows 11 Tips: Move Your Icons Back to the Left


If you upgraded to Windows 11, you might notice your status bar icons are now in the middle of your taskbar at the bottom. For years, the icons were on the left and if this slight change seems strange, fear not – you can change the icon position!

  1. Right-click the taskbar and open Taskbar Settings.
  2. Select the Taskbar behaviors drop-down and change Taskbar alignment to Left.
  3. This action moves all your taskbar icons to the left and puts the Start button back where it was in Windows 10.
