Need to apply taskbar UI setting on win 10 devices

TechUST 336 Reputation points

Hi expert, I need a script built to accommodate the Win10 UI changes, for the taskbar.  

Search: Icon Only

Widgets: Off

Chat: Off

Taskbar Alignment: Left

  I have applied this on win11, will it applicable on win10 as well or these registry entry specific work for win11, i have gone through multiple articles but not found anything related to this for windows 10. if these registry entries applicable for window 10 , is there any group policy created in windows 10 machines.

Would appreciate if you can share any reference article.
