How can I custom toolbar/taskbar on Win 11?

Iron Contributor

I'm trying to restore a custom toolbar on my Windows 11 taskbar that directly links to a folder, as I find it very convenient for accessing frequently used programs. Previously, I could place these on the right side of the taskbar, but now I can only adjust the position of the main taskbar to the left or middle.

I've looked through numerous YouTube tutorials but haven't found a solution yet.

 

If there's no built-in way to do this in Windows 11, could someone recommend a widget or third-party program that might help? Thanks in advance!

1. Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar and select "Taskbar settings" (or search for "Taskbar settings" in the Start menu).
2. In the Taskbar settings window, click on the "Behavior" tab.
3. Under "Taskbar buttons", toggle on "Show task view button" to add a button to the taskbar.
You can also customize the taskbar behavior by adjusting the settings under "Taskbar alignment" and "Taskbar appearance".
