Ability to Change Taskbar Location

Occasional Visitor

I'm sure I'm not the first to mention it but really don't understand why we don't have the ability to change the taskbar location. Just purchased and picked up Surface Pro X w/ Windows 11 and the first setting I change on any computer is the task bar location. Reason? I regularly pin my frequent apps and related documents to the task bar and right click to shortcut tasks (new emails/appointments -Outlook, quickly toggle open documents/windows when I am on my mouse as opposed to keyboard shortcuts, etc.). I have a genetic issue (EDS) that essentially renders my connective tissues (tendons, cartilage, ligaments and so on) less supportive to my muscular and skeletal systems than it should be, i.e., super susceptible to neck and shoulder strain. Due to this, I attempt to mitigate chronic pain with a slew of ergonomic solutions and set my monitors to be dead center to my eye level; it is easier on my body to look left/right than to tilt my skull down repetitively throughout the day. Essentially, this is an accessibility issue. I will have to roll back to 10 until this functionality is available in 11. Thank you for your time!

Hi, " will have to roll back to 10 "
Currently, this is the only solution, Microsoft now even in the Insider Program does not provide a fix in this regard!
Best regards
