Well, Microsoft has improved Windows 10’s taskbar a lot. The new taskbar of Windows 10 is customizable in many ways. For instance, you can pin apps, websites, folders, etc. to the taskbar. Not only that, but Windows 10 also lets you move the taskbar to the left, right, top, or bottom of the screen.

If you are amongst those who like to pin tens of programs to the taskbar, then you might like the idea of a secondary taskbar. Although Windows 10 doesn’t have a secondary taskbar, you can use a third-party tool to add an extra taskbar on the operating system.

So, in this article, we have decided to share a working method to add the second taskbar on Windows 10.
