The taskbar is an important navigation area in an operating system. It stays visible at all times, even while browsing and helps you get anywhere fast or lets you see important information like battery status or the clock all the time. Windows 10, like all its versions, gave the user the ability to customize the taskbar and choose which items appear here. It is always a good idea to choose wisely only those items on the taskbar, which are more important than others. . For example, you will like to see the clock, battery status, wi-fi and sound on the taskbar, as these are the items you use frequently. But it's painful to see the nvidia icon and Intel's smart connection icon take up space on your system tray that you won't use for a decade.



How to choose and place icons on the taskbar

Step 1 - Press key Windows + i to access the system dashboard.

Step 2 - Click Notifications & Actions in the left menu and right click Turn system icons on or off.

Now, on the next screen, turn on the items you want and turn off the items you probably don't use.

Note that if it is not visible on the horizontal taskbar, it is still present on the taskbar and can only be accessed by clicking the vertical arrow key on the taskbar.

Even if the item is enabled and not visible on the horizontal taskbar, you can disable and then re-enable it to place the icon on the horizontal taskbar.


Note that these are system icons, but if you want to put something else that is not in the system icons list. Just click select the items that are displayed on the taskbar.



A more detailed and extensive list of icons is available here to choose from and place on the taskbar.

This way you can customize the items you want to place on the taskbar. It is always better to put the battery, clock and network status on the taskbar. But the importance of a particular object also varies from person to person.
