Although Windows 11 does not include the ability to change the Taskbar size from Settings, it’s possible to change the size of the interface to a small, medium, or large using Registry.
Here are some of the most common reasons why you might want to change the Taskbar size in Windows 11:
- To fit more content on your screen: If you have a small screen or you’re working with a lot of windows, you might want to make the Taskbar smaller so you can see more of your desktop.
- To make the Taskbar easier to reach: If you have a large screen or you’re using a touchscreen device, you might want to make the Taskbar larger so it’s easier to tap on.
- To change the overall look of your desktop: If you’re not happy with the default Taskbar size, you can change it to match your personal preferences.
