Hi,

Anyone else have issues in Windows 11 with explorer repeatedly and frequently crashing when their taskbar is set to display on multiple monitors?

On a Dell Latitude 5510. Drivers are all up to date.
Going to try sfc and dism etc. but this is driving me insane!

Many thanks
James

    Has Microsoft acknowledged this to be a known issue?
    Would really like to see this resolved so I can resume having my taskbar on multiple monitors!

    The whole taskbar situation in Windows 11 is a broken nightmarish mess!

    Cheers
    James

    Same problem here. I disabled the taskbar display on my external screen but it's not very convenient.
    I hope this problem will be solved soon.

    Yeah, I found a fix for this. Right-click on taskbar -> Taskbar settings -> Taskbar Behaviours -> uncheck "show my taskbar on all displays". Tadaa. Enjoy crash-free Windows 11 on multiple monitors.

    Has anyone found a solution to this that doesn't involve removing the taskbar from all monitors?
