    It got a 27" with 2560x1440 (as opposed to the 34" 3440x1440) so I lose a decent amount of peripheral space that I will really miss. But the menus are far more accessible and I was getting frustrated with windows popping up too far away from the central workspace when you open them (often times to the far left which makes no sense).

    The real shame is that the larger 34" should always be superior. But it is not because Windows has not compensated for the ultrawide and doesn't centralize where the common things should be. Everything is too far to the left. It is just an inefficient experience for productivity users. I suspect we will see adjustments in the future. The current approach is not optimal (far from it). Clearly, Windows was designed for monitors up to about 27". There is no consideration for monitors larger than that.

    I agree. the Mouse Acceleration does not work with resolutions over 1920. I found this, let me know if it helps. but it might be designed to reduce acceleration (for games). There may be other solutions, or you might have to get specific hardware that has a higher acceleration rate.

    Mouse acceleration works for me. Its just that the physical positioning of taskbar items, etc. is not appropriate for an ultrawide monitor.

    What they needs is a "default workspace" that you can adjust to your liking. Then the outer perimeters just act as "bonus areas". As is, Windows needlessly forces everything too far from the sweet spot.

    This is a quick fix. Right click on the task bar>Toolbars>Links. There should now be 2 vertical lines next to the word "Links" on the right side. Click on those 2 lines and drag them to the left until your icons switch to the right side of the task bar. Drag the 2 vertical lines next to the where the icons are now over to the middle, and that should solve your problem.

    Another thing I was thinking was to create several dummy icons that are black (match the taskbar) and put them in between the search bar and the program icons.
    I like this but have a variant idea. Since my taskbar is more limited in space I only put my favorites in it. The less used apps live as tiles in my start menu. But you have all that extra room to put less used apps on the left. So why not?

    If you feel like you STILL can fill it -- how about pinning your favorite websites to the taskbar? (Chrome and Edge offer this.) Again -- you're not obliged to look at or use any of them. It will look nice and achieve your goal.

    Welcome to TenForums @TheWaffle

    Actually, in a way, it's a 'slow' fix - it's about 3 years since the OP last visited these forums

    Still, it's an ingenious idea, so it was worth posting as it may help others.
