For desktop users out there, are you one of the mainstream crowd who just leaves their taskbar at the default bottom position, or do you like placing them in a more funky area?



One time on a whim I decided to try placing mine to the left side, and somehow I got used to it after a very short amount of time. It's now been there for over a year at this point, and I feel like I'll be doing this with all PCs I'll own from now on huehue. How 'bout y'all?

Mine's always at the bottom. I never really think about moving it, or anything, since it'd feel unnatural to me for it to be somewhere else. @[email protected]

True. I kept mine at the bottom for over a decade. I don't know what drove me to give the side taskbar style a try but hey, rn it works really well for me hehe.

Also, I feel like I might be able to transition to Linux a bit better now lol. Pls feel free to prove me wrong, anyone.

I actually would like the taskbar on the left... if I wasn't basically forced to use small icons, to have the little status icons positioned that way and the time and day occupying so much space! I've tried once and these problems really stood out to me, I couldn't get used to it! And this is why I keep the taskbar on the bottom (which is also still better than on top, in my opinion) 😊

That's the one main main con about it sadly. Much less real estate resulting in smaller icons and a weird time and date arrangement. I got used to it over the years however, and I'm not the type to put too many apps on the taskbar either, so it all works out hehe.

All of mine go to the top of my screen regardless of OS. I have a dock at the bottom also regardless of OS.

Yo what dock software do you use for Windows? Curious cat here.

I've been using the free version of Winstep Nexus. It's the closest thing that I can get to a Windows equivalent to my Linux docks: Plank and Latte.

Mine is on the left side, because I stuck it there one day years ago and decided I liked it that way.

Now when I put it back on the bottom I don't remember where things are anymore. LOL

Just wanting to update you. I've been having some issues with Nexus, so I've swapped back to Rocketdock on WIndows. It's a little bit more setup, but it really works nice once you get it setup properly. :)
