my taskbar is messing up what can I do? RRS feed

  • Question

  • At times its going left to right as if I'm clicking on something. I don't know what is going on. Like its doing this:

    <<<<< >>> <<<< (this is indicating how its moving)

    and then it stops and then it does it again. It never did this before.

    You may face this issue if system files or profile is corrupted. Let’s follow these steps and check.

    Method 1: Restart explorer.exe and check

    1. Open Task Manager by pressing the CTRL+Shift+ESC keys

    2. Click on More details if Task Manager opens this way.

    3. In the Processes tab, select Windows Explorer, and click on the Restart button.

    Method 2: Unpin and re pin the taskbar icon and check 

    You can click/tap on Unpin this program from taskbar to remove it. If the opened app is currently not pinned to your taskbar, then you can click/tap on Pin this program to taskbar to add it.
