If the Lock the taskbar option is grayed out under Taskbar and Start Menu Properties, a registry change can solve the issue.

  1. Hold down the Windows key and press R (Or click Start > Run).

  2. Type regedit and click OK.

  3. Click the plus sign next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    then Software
    then Microsoft
    then Windows
    then CurrentVersion
    then Policies
    then click Explorer

  4. Look for an entry on the right side for LockTaskBar. Right-click the entry and Delete it.
