Windows 11
Windows version: 21H2.22000.652

Within the past three weeks or so the Windows Taskbar conttext menu has changed from several items such as Task Manager, Show People Button, Show Windows stacked, and all the other typical options..

Now all II get when right click is

I've Created another user and tested and have had the same result. SFC /scannow found nothing, I had no big software installs or updates, and using "dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth" there was no corruption issues

Does anyone have any suggestions or explanations?

As always, Thanks in advance.

This is normal behavior for Windows 11. Did you upgrade from Win 10, or had some third party apps for start menu and Taskbar?

Hello Jerry, :)

All the taskbar context menu items from Windows 10 were moved to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar in Windows 11.

Sorry for taking so long to reply but things have been hectic. I know what I did which made me think the Windows 11 taskbar had more optioons was

I read from another website that I could use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell\Update\PackagesUnDockingDisabled=1, Which restorestored the windows 10 taskbar menu but at the same time screwed other things up too.

Thanks

I'll put this in here as its not worthy, methinks, of a major thread. MY taskbar has lost 50% of itself beneath the monitor screen. The blue shield says windows security, need attention. But it tries to open in MS Store which reports nothing found?
