These include the popular Taskbar View’s Windows Timeline, which lets users access recent files.

Right now, the giant tech firm is already doing its plan slowly by removing the taskbar’s functionalities, such as the full-fledged right-click menu. Aside from these, the developer also confirmed some of the features it already deleted: 

  • Taskbar alignment (location) is now bottom of the screen, and it cannot be changed. 
  • The people app icon has been removed from the taskbar.
  • Some icons may not appear in the System Tray (systray).
  • The taskbar has been rewritten, and third-party apps will have limited access to the APIs. As a result, apps can no longer customize some areas of the taskbar.

Should You Still Upgrade
