        I have tremor and at least twice a day I accidentally rearrange the taskbar. When I first got Win10, I was told the ability to lock the taskbar was no longer included, and I haven’t seen an option in the settings that addresses this. Any suggestions, anyone? I’m still on version 1909 because anything newer hasn’t been offered.

        It’s still there. Either right-click on the taskbar and select Lock all taskbars, or got to Settings, Personalization, Taskbar, Lock the task bar.

        This stops the taskbar from being accidentally moved or resized, but it doesn’t stop icons being moved within the taskbar.

        Can you start a new thread / tack onto an existing for this question?
        We need to know if you have Conexant audio drivers installed. The easiest way is to open a Command Prompt and type DRIVERQUERY. Then right click the bar at the top and select Edit > Select All, Edit > Copy. Paste the result into your post.

        cheers, Paul
