Hi there

I'm not sure if this is a feature or not in Windows 11... something to do with multiple displays I believe

This dividing line has appeared on my taskbar and I'm not sure why

It locks the first icon on the right, so I can't rearrange that icon (Word) anymore

Restarting the explorer fixes it, but it is annoying when it comes back

Could I possibly get an explanation for what this is and how I can turn it off?

I saw that happen once and turned out the icons/programs had gotten pinned to the Notification Area rather than on the Taskbar itself. Might see if they can be removed in Taskbar settings.
