How can I fix the Taskbar bug from windows 11?

Yardley Estiverne 40 Reputation points

My Windows 11 taskbar has a weird behavior that I consider a bug. Let me explain, I have restarted my computer and some automatic apps are loaded, The apps that I have pinned to the taskbar launch normally, and when I launch some other application like Chrome or Edge all the applications pinned to the taskbar that were launched disappear, when I open other apps the taskbar come to its previous state where were the previously launched apps, and keep doing this again and again (sometimes I got the previously launched apps and for no reason, it changes to another list of the launched app). Is there a fix for that or is this a new Windows 11 bug or behavior?

    This could be due to a variety of reasons such as misconfigured taskbar settings, malfunctioning system services, outdated system, faulty updates, or corrupt system files. Here are some potential solutions that might help:


    Restart Taskbar Services: Press CTRL + Shift + Esc to launch the Task Manager and switch to the Details tab. Locate explorer.exe, select it, press End Task, and check if the taskbar works after the explorer service restarts.


    Modify Taskbar Settings: Press Win + I and navigate to Personalization > Taskbar. Modify the settings under Taskbar behaviors.


    Update / Rollback System: Issues like this are often caused by minor bugs which are patched in new updates. If you haven’t updated your system in a while, this is likely to be helpful.


    Repair System Files: You can use a PowerShell cmdlet to reinstall and re-register all the built-in apps.
