By default, the taskbar is always on display on both screens. However, Windows 11 gives its users an option to display or hide the taskbar on the extended screen for those that use a dual-screen setup. As a user with an extended screen, you might not want the taskbar to be lurking around from everywhere and would like to hide it to have a full-screen experience on the second monitor.
Why do people use an Extended Screen?
A dual monitor setup helps users run multiple applications at once without changing windows. An extended screen turns all of your monitors into one big screen, making it easier to multi-task. The following instructions might help you hide or display the taskbar on your extended screen.
