Why can't I align / docking the Windows 11 taskbar: left, right?
You can align / docking the Windows 11 taskbar to the left, right and top via a registry intervention!
1.) What should you watch out for when aligning / docking the Windows 11 taskbar?
Alignment from the system is not intended, when aligning the Windows 11 taskbar to the right or left, the file explorer crashes, which repeats itself in a loop again and again. Working under Windows 11 is almost impossible!
When aligning the Windows 11 taskbar at the top of the desktop , there were no problems, only that the Windows 11 start menu always appears on the left, so it's best to align the Windows 11 taskbar to the left if you absolutely want to work with the taskbar at the top of the Windows 11 desktop!
So! Aligning to the right or left is not advisable!

2.) The registry entry for aligning the Windows 11 taskbars!
CAUTION! For experienced Windows users only!
1. Start the Windows 11 Registry Editor
3. Mark and open the Settings value and double-click
4.Open the 13th Mark value 03 and enter 01
00 = Windows 11 taskbar left (file explorer crash)
01 = Windows 11 taskbar top (if OK)
02 = Windows 11 taskbar right (crash file explorer)
03 = Windows 11 taskbar bottom (everything OK standard value)
5. You must then log off or ► restart Explorer
(... see Image-2 Point 1 to 7)
As I said, please be aware that there are some bugs associated with this as Microsoft does not support this taskbar relocation. Moving the taskbar up moves the Start menu up, but aligns it with the upper-left corner, even if the taskbar icons stay centered. The taskbar is in the top right where it belongs, but when you click the clock, speaker, or notifications, the pop-up menus for it appear in the lower right corner. However, the search menu is still centered.
