The taskbar is one of the most used and visible areas of Windows operating system. As you likely know, the taskbar was overhauled in Windows 7 to bring new functionalities, look and feel to the taskbar.
The taskbar in the recently released Windows 10 although is not very colorful like it was in Windows 7/8 and looks slightly different because of the search box and dark theme, it behaves more or less the same.
