The "Create new toolbar in the taskbar" function has been removed under Windows 11. This means that it is no longer possible to display a new toolbar for a menu that you have created yourself. The Microsoft Store App "PerfectMenu"
may offer a way out. I wrote this app and use it successfully under Windows 11, whereby I was able to transfer the folders created under Windows 10 with the shortcuts 1: 1. Since it can be assumed that other users also need extensive menu structures, I would like to refer to the app mentioned.

Hi

Good to see this app, can you make folders in the Start menu open when the mouse is over them so they can be explored?

This would create toolbars like in Win10.

Thanks

Hi,
I'll think about this. Do you mean: it is not so good to see all shortcuts at once and better if they appear when the mouse is over the corresponding folder? If everything comes up at once, is that too confusing - or just because of the similarity to Windows 10? (I originally thought it was an advantage if "everything" appears at once :))

No, I'd like to see the folder open up, so that I can access all the files inside without clicking on anything.

thanks

Hi,

Reading your „Taskbar toolbars - how to get them back? Windows 11 Taskbar sucks!“ I fully understood you. In order to realize what you want, my app would have to intervene programmatically in the functionality of the taskbar. I am not able to do that. My app is just a substitute (like sweetener instead of sugar) for the toolbars as they worked under Windows 10. And I would like to bet: one day Microsoft will restore the Taskbar toolbars for Windows 11 - then it could happen that I throw away my own app. My suggestion: do the same!

Thanks​
