    Its a matter of screen size, icon size and depth of task bar. If your task bar is two lines deep with small icons, like mine, there could be twenty. Some you may want to hide unless they are in "Notify" mode, others like password managers or AV status you may always want exposed. Once Windows feels it has used enough space it hides a bunch unless you tell it to show all.

    I usually leave my task bar unlocked.

    Others will have a different experience.

    Hello dafydd, :)

    Locking the taskbar is more of a personal choice than being important.

    Some people like to lock the taskbar to prevent accidentally moving it to another screen border or changing its width/height.

    It gets even more personal if you run multiple monitors with multiple taskbars.
