    Hello scoobywrx210 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    I see your primary is on the right side while the taskbar on the secondary was left unlocked! When right clicking on the Taskbar for the imediate right click menu or the properties screen where you find the Use small icons as well as auto hide taskbar and lock taskbar options you simply unlock the taskbar to resize by click and drag to a narrower size as well as set where it will be at the top, bottom, left or right side of the screen which for any dual display will effect the main taskbar on the Primary as well as the extended seen or clone of Primary on the Secondary depending which Multitasking setting you choose.

    With UltraMON or DisplayFusion two popular well known programs for multiple display set ups I found the "Smart bar" used on the previous versions like 7 had to be disabled by unchecking that option to allow 10 to handle the extended bar. But the return to normal is a simple task of first right clicking on the taskbar to see it unlocked and then you click to grab and hold while dragging the edge inward to shrink it's size on the Secondary seen there. Once resized you right click again to simply check off the lock taskbar option. On the properties the Apply button will need to be clicked on as well.
