How to resize the Windows 8.1 taskbar?
Windows 8.1 taskbar is a handy feature that gives you a one-click access to the files and programs that you are currently running. The taskbar allows you to easily juggle between the different opened programs and files and simultaneously work on them. However, if you have too many programs opened on your PC, the taskbar may not show all of them clearly – this is due to the lack of space in the taskbar. However, like with everything else in a Windows-based PC, even this can easily be personalized as per your requirements and preferences. Yes, you can comfortably resize the Windows 8.1 taskbar and enable it to display more programs and files.
Here is how you can easily do it:Â
- If you are on the Start Screen, click on the Desktop tile to go to the desktop.
- Right-click an empty area on the taskbar. If ‘Lock the Taskbar’ has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked.
- Unlock it by clicking ‘Lock the Taskbar’ option, which removes the check mark.
- Point to the edge of the taskbar until the pointer changes into a double-headed arrow and then click and drag the border to make the taskbar the size you want.Â
Much in the same way, you can also reduce the size of the taskbar to let it show only a few programs and have more screen space to enjoy.
