Windows 11 has received many restrictions compared to Windows 10, and some of them relate to the taskbar – for example, it cannot be moved from the bottom of the screen to any other. Another limitation is related to the fact that the size of the taskbar cannot be changed through the system settings, but the system still provides an option to increase or decrease this menu.
