Customize the Taskbar in Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Amanda, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to customize the Windows taskbar on Windows 8 computers.
- 3Let's look at the options.The first one is "Lock the taskbar". This means that if we click to remove the checkmark, we can change the position of the icons that appear on the taskbar. The next option is "Auto-hide the taskbar". This means that we would only see the taskbar when we move the mouse cursor over it, in the bottom of the screen. Next is "Use small taskbar buttons". This is especially useful on small screens, when we need all the space we can get. Next is "Taskbar location on screen". In this case, it is set to be on the bottom part of the screen.
- 7Choose a taskbar button option by clicking on it.We can "Always combine, hide labels", so only the icons would be visible. Alternatively, we can "Combine when taskbar is full". This means that if the taskbar were not full, we would see labels, but when it gets over-encumbered, then in that case, they would combine. We will keep it at "Never combine". Next is "Notification area".
