  1. Open Taskbar and Navigation properties by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping “Search” (or if you’re using a mouse, pointing to the upper-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer down, and then clicking “Search”), entering “Taskbar” in the search box, and then tapping or clicking “Taskbar and Navigation” in the results.
