Windows 10: Taskbar doesn't stay on 2nd display after user switching

    Taskbar doesn't stay on 2nd display after user switching


    I have a problem with my taskbar. I have 2 monitors and I like to keep the taskbar on the secondary display, vertically at the right hand side of the screen. My other half has a separate account on our PC and she has the taskbar the same way.

    When she logs in to her account while I'm still logged in and then when I switch back to my profile, the taskbar is being moved from display 2 back to display 1 - however it stays vertically on the right hand side. I.e. Windows can't seem to remember which display the taskbar is on, but it can remember the location of the taskbar.

    Can anyone help me to resolve this or is it just a bug?


    My system spec:

    Operating System
    Windows 10 64-bit
    Intel Core i5 4590 @ 3.30GHz
    Corsair Vengeance 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 800MHz (9-9-9-24)
    MSI Z87-G45 GAMING (MS-7821)
