Windows 11: Easy way to move Windows start button back to the left side

Like it or not, the new Windows 11 taskbar is pretty much similar to taskbar on MacOS, not on the similarity application icons (no, they are different) but on the application icons location being at the center. There are people who like the change made but there are also people who doesn’t like on the design change.

I – for someone who is using Windows on daily basis at work and despite I love the new design change – still unable to get used to the new design, especially when it comes to clicking the Windows Start button. In Windows 10 or before, I don’t really care where my mouse pointer was, I just navigate my mouse cursor to the most bottom left and click on it, for sure I clicked the correct Windows Start button. However with Windows 11, I can’t do the same thing anymore, I have to consciously navigate my mouse cursor to the correct location of the Windows 11 Start button to be able to click the button properly. If you are like me – you don’t like the new design or have not get used to the new Windows 11 start button location, luckily there’s an easy tweak for you to do to make the windows start button back to its original place – bottom left corner of the screen. Here’s how you can revert it back to the old-school Windows Start button location – bottom left corner of the screen.
