It seems that the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects3 

resets every time explorer.exe starts.

For instance, if I change the position of the Taskbar (00 -> 03), then save, and then reboot explorer, the registry resets, and the taskbar remains in the bottom of the screen.

Please attend to this.

I am having the same issue. Have you found a remedy?

@Thodor1s Mine put the taskbar up on top when I merged my 3 monitors using the nvidia control panel. The registry still said 03 and I can't seem to bring it back down no matter what I change this value to. Any idea?

I've found a work-around to this. It was in an article by Jessica Tanner on TipsMake.com (https://tipsmake.com/steps-to-change-taskbar-position-on-windows-11).
Change '03' to '01' as described elsewhere here but then IMMEDIATELY restart Explorer. Terminate Explorer and restart it. As Jessica writes, "Restarting Explorer is a required step, you cannot replace it by restarting the computer."
