How to move the Windows 11 taskbar to the left

Windows 11 has some interesting features and beautiful new rounded corners, but what is the “Start” button in the middle of the screen doing? The change from left-aligned taskbar to center-aligned taskbar is difficult to adapt, but it is easy to override Microsoft’s design choices and move the start button and taskbar icon back to the left.

To move the taskbar to the left, right-click anywhere on the taskbar and select Taskbar settings From the pop-up menu—if you can call a menu that contains one item a menu. This will take you directly to the Personalization> Taskbar screen.
