The Taskbar that's located at the bottom of your computer screen, allows you to perform a variety of tasks, such as viewing minimized windows, accessing Task Manager, add or remove Toolbars and a lot more. In terms of the latter (Toolbars), If you've customized It suited to your overall usability and want to set It back to Its default state, In this tutorial, I will show you how to reset the Taskbar toolbars In Windows 10.
Before I begin, here's what I'm referring to. I've right-clicked on a blank area on my Taskbar, selected Toolbars, and to the right of that, I've checked every toolbar- namely Address, Links and Desktop. As a result, they're now located on the Taskbar as shown below.
Toolbars, contain a list of shortcuts to certain locations of your computer, and also perform other tasks such as allowing access to websites, by typing In a URL In the Address Toolbar. The URL/Link will remain there for future reference.
Sometimes, removing certain toolbars, does not go according to plan and can be a difficult process to get rid of them. For this reason, or perhaps you simply want to start again from scratch, I will demonstrate how to reset them, thus clear the lot.
To do this, I will use a neat little Batch file that will do the job with a double-click of the mouse. I have provided the download links to the Batch file, at the end of this article. The process Is extremely simple, so without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.
Step One:Prior to resetting the Taskbar toolbars, here's a visual of my configuration. I have all the default toolbars active- Address, Links and Desktop as shown below.
Step Two:Okay, time to reset the Taskbar toolbars. Once you've downloaded the archive and executed It, extract the batch file named Reset Taskbar Toolbars.bat to a folder of your choice. It will look the same as mine below. Simply double-click It, and It will Instantly reset and clear the toolbars. We'll check It out In the next step.
Last Step:As expected, my toolbars have been cleared from the Taskbar, which Is now completely empty. A perfect result!
Final Thoughts:I'd say It's safe to assume, that you didn't think the process would be so simple to apply, correct? I thought as much. Whilst It's quite simple to manually remove the Taskbar tools yourself, I have come across some that just wouldn't budge, and that's where this comes to very good use.
