While Windows 10 largely allows for customization, it hasn’t tried to experiment with its core features like the Start Menu and Taskbar. Both of these UI elements are left-aligned and have been sitting in a corner for close to two decades. However, macOS and Chrome OS’s app slot is centered, and I find it much more utilitarian and symmetrical in its overall theme. So if you want to move the Taskbar icons to the center, you’ve come to the right place. In this post I will show you how to center Taskbar icons with a very simple application. The best part is that it doesn’t require messing with the core system so you don’t break anything. Having said that, let’s get started.
Center Taskbar Icons in Windows 10
We are going Use an app called FalconX which was developed by Chris Andriessen. It is a great application and does not require heavy installation. You just need to run the program and there it is. Now having said that, here are the steps to follow to avoid confusion.
1. Download FalconX ZIP file from here. It is available for free, but if you want to support the developer, you can download the paid version from the Microsoft Store ($1.09).
2. Next, extract the zip file and open the folder. Here, double click on “FalconX” to run the program. Windows may block the installation, so Click on “More Information” and then click “Run Anyway”.
3. All your Taskbar icons will move to the center in a zippy and the best part is that it doesn’t feel like a third party solution. Animations are really cool and I feel very native to the system.
4. If you want to configure the application, you can find it in the system tray. You can try different animations and also let the app run on startup. FalconX app also supports multiple displays up to 3 monitors.
