A few months ago, Microsoft started rolling out the Windows 11 operating system to users, as the new operating system comes with a renewed look and more applications, and perhaps one of the most noticeable changes in Windows 11 is the taskbar, which now contains icons placed in the center as shown in Ribbon on Mac-OS.
Now the third-party tool already allows users to get a macOS-like bar on Windows 11 by pressing the taskbar, TaskbarXI adds additional customization options to the taskbar and is still in the early stage of development.
According to a report by XDADevelopers, the app was created as a successor to the TaskbarX app for Windows 10, and according to the report, users can shrink the taskbar on Windows 11 to a compressed dock using the app, and the dock also extends to full size when any window is maximized.
The report also states that the tool supports multiple monitors and can split the taskbar into the left and right pane, and as of now the app can’t change the background style and color of the taskbar and you can’t also change the taskbar position at the top of your screen.
Microsoft is also said to be planning to add support for third-party tools in version 22H2 of Windows 11, and support for third-party tools was first introduced by the company with the launch of Windows Vista in 2007 after which support was also added to Windows 7.
The WindowsLatest report also states that support for third-party tools will also allow users to customize the widget to their liking. Currently, the operating system does not support third-party tools nor does it allow users to install widgets on the desktop.
