The taskbar corner and taskbar corner overflow menu in Windows 11 shows the notification icons for apps.

If you like, you can have notifications icons stacked in two or three rows on the taskbar corner to save space when you do not want to have them hidden in the overflow menu.

This tutorial will show you how to show notification icons stacked on the taskbar corner for your account in Windows 11.


EXAMPLE: Notification icons stacked and not stacked on taskbar corner
