The taskbar is an integral part of Windows 11 and has a long-standing history in prior operating system versions. The bar includes familiar features like the Start menu, search tool, File Explorer, and widget panel buttons. You can also add shortcuts for your favorite software to the taskbar.
However, the default taskbar in Windows 11 can only include so many shortcuts. If you add more shortcuts to it, there will also be less space available for minimized windows. Adding another taskbar to Windows 11 would be a great way to give yourself more room. And you can do just that with Linkbar. This risewindows post will guide you on the steps to create multiple taskbars on your Windows 11/10/8/7 PC.
