When it comes to Windows, the goal is to minimize the learning curve. With Windows 11, you can customize just about every aspect of your experience. Whether you’ve just upgraded to Windows 11 or have been using it for a while, read on for our tips on how to tailor it according to your preferences.
Tweak the Taskbar
If you prefer the old Windows layout, right-click anywhere on the Taskbar to access Taskbar settings. From there, click on Taskbar behaviors > Taskbar alignment > Left. Or if you want to further customize your Taskbar settings, try using Taskbar11. With it, you can move the Taskbar to the top of your screen instead of just left or center, and even change the sizes of icons on the Taskbar.
Organize with Fences
Fences is a great way to personalize your Windows 11 experience. It lets you easily create resizable frames where you can place custom categories for your files and folders right on your desktop. Fences also allows you to add shortcuts to your favorite programs so you can quickly access them without having to search through the Start menu.
Fences lets you organize your desktop by putting files or programs within customizable frames, which you can roll up in a mini-window. This way, you can have a more organized and less cluttered desktop.
Search with PowerToys Run
PowerToys Run is a free utility that allows you to easily access search functions. Simply press the Alt and Space shortcut keys, and a search bar will appear on your screen. This feature eliminates the need to dig through the menus, saving you precious time. You can download PowerToys Run here.
