How to Create Additional Taskbars with Linkbar

Linkbar is free software that lets you add multiple taskbars to your Windows 7, 8 or 10 PC at once. The best thing about Linkbar is that it is portable, which means you don’t need to install it on your system. Let’s see how to use this freeware.

1) First, you will need to create a new folder in the location of your choice. Then place the zip file you downloaded from the above link in this folder. Now you have to extract its content with a right-click.

2) After extracting the folder, you will find two applications here, Linkbar.exe is for 32-bit architecture and Linkbar64.exe is for 64-bit architecture.

3) First you will be asked whether to create a new link bar for all users or only for yourself. Select your preferred option, then navigate to and select the folder you created earlier. When done, click the Create button.

4) It will by default create a taskbar at the top of the desktop. If you want, you can drag it to reposition it. To add an icon to the newly created taskbar, simply drag-and-drop any icon on your desktop.

5) This is the process of creating a new taskbar. You can add multiple taskbars to your desktop using this method. If you want to remove the taskbar, right-click on it and select “Delete the Linkbar”.

Linkbar Panel Options

The options for customizing the taskbar are available in its Settings.

By default, the new link bar is located at the top of the screen but can be easily changed through settings. Settings also include options to change the colour, size, transparency of the link bar. You can choose to auto-hide the link bar and show it only with mouseover, left click, or right-click. You can choose to place your shortcuts from left to right (for horizontal link bar), up (for vertical link bar), or centre the shortcut. It’s all very customizable.

last word:

“Taskbar” is probably a misnomer. Of course, there is no Start button or System Tray (aka Notification Area), only for quick access and provision for adding shortcuts. Therefore, a more appropriate name would probably be “Launch bar”. I have a 21-inch monitor, so my taskbar is plenty for my needs. However, if your taskbar is short on space, Linkbar certainly provides a simple and easy way to make more space. Linkbar Lite, free, portable and much more customizable – is a great option.
