A workaround for this issue is to open up Nvidia Control Panel. At the top, press Desktop/Surround Displays and uncheck Confine Taskbar to Single Display. Not exactly what I was looking for either, but its better than it just being on the left monitor, taskbar is back where it should be.

Did this in the beginning when I started with Windows 11. After a few reboots same problem, that is not the solution.

Not sure if it's been covered, but for me the taskbar behaviour is related to which monitor is set as primary. This cannot be changed once you enable surround mode, but it's still partly defining which monitor is your primary.

If I set my number 2 (leftmost) monitor to primary, then enable surround, the taskbar will only show on monitor 2, but the start menu and search box will appear on monitor 1 (centre). When in surround mode, this cannot be changed, so I would have to change back to regular multi monitor mode to change it, and then back to surround mode.

Probably doesn't help anyone, just an observation.

I am having this same issue since i got my 3 new monitors.
taskbar is on the left and start menu on middle screen.

I already changed the setting in windows where you assign the middle monitor as primary but when I open Nvidia to configurate surround i see that monitor numbers change.
Middle monitor is seeing by windows as device 2 so i tell it to use it as primary, but nvidia change number of middle monitor to 1 and that is in windows my left monitor. So after starting surround my taskbar is on the left.

I will try this afternoon to move display cables on my GTX1070 and see if i can solve this issue

You can try but I already know it not going to work. Yes for the time you changed it, but after a few restarts or opening a game like ETS2 or a program like office... taskbar appear again on the 3 screen. Big mistake off microsoft where nobody want to resolve the problem. I received already 100 solutions off them, they said earlier it was a problem off Nvdia, all bullshit !!!
After 1 year being an insider an reported this problem from the beginning I decided to go back to Win 10 where I not have this problem. Again taskbar and Windows 11 BIG BULLSHIT !!!

Funny thing is that i had same issue before i changed my screens. Tried also different things, and one of those was changing the position of cables on my card. And never had that problem again.

When I attached this new screens i also had no issues with taskbar. But had issues with Nvidia Surround which kept turning off.
Screens where out of order (left and middle one had a different position then before) that is why i changed the cables on my card

That's something I just remembered, that is why i will try this after i get home.

Other issue I also have with Nvidia Surround and my new screen is the fact that if i do a bezel correction inside Nvidia drivers, surround shuts off after I press enable.
So i am now running nvidia surround without bezel correction

Ok seninha,
my cables are: left screen --> first display port; middle screen --> second dp and right screen --> third dp. I have an RTX3060 Ti Gpu. So I have my hdmi port not in use.
If I understand well, you changed your cables to example left screen --> second displayport and so on and now your taskbar always stay on the middle screen in a surround setup is that correct even when restarting or opening a program or game ?

I tried this before with my 2070 super Gpu that not worked but maybe with this one ???
Want to be sure before I disconnect all cables again ?
Thanks

Looks like I solved my issue (for now).
Taskbar is on middle screen. I changed cables on the back of my card.

Here you can see which monitor is connected to which displayport.

Now I need to figure out WHY i sometime loose my surround settings.:unsure:
When i started my systeem surround was gone and every monitor was showed apart with his own taskbar

Maybe just keep moving your connectors until you find your best setting
