Upgrading from windows 10 to widnows 11

Hi!
I'm going to upgrade from windows 10 to windows 11 and i wonder what should i do with the adrenalin software? I got the 7700xt gpu and since you should choose which windows you have to download the drivers I don't know if there will be any drivers conflict because i have adrenalin for windows 10 installed.

When I upgraded my HTPC from Windows 10 22H2 to Windows 11 recently I didn't have to do anything with drivers or software, everything continued to work as-is.

There were the usual hassles getting the Windows environment back to my preferred format, and still perturbed that Microsoft has made the taskbar unmovable, but otherwise no issues.

Thanks!

Are you just wanting to move the taskbar to left side like Windows 10?

If that is all you want to do it is indeed movable. Right click in taskbar area and click Taskbar Settings. Taskbar behaviors is what you select to move it, then Taskbar Alignment.

Windows 11 Taskbar Alignment only changes whether the icons are left or center justified within the taskbar.

The feature that had been available since Windows 95 up through Windows 10, the ability to position the taskbar on the left, right, top or bottom edge of the desktop, is no longer available. Apparently Microsoft believes that it is too much work to continue offering this feature, what with the new taskbar animations, which nobody even cares about.

Ok, I was just taking a guess at how you wanted it, because most people that ask me about it complain about the taskbar being middle aligned. I actually like it being middle aligned now, at first I could not stand it.

Makes me remember though about my father in law always complaining his taskbar somehow got moved to either side or top of screen back in the day when that was still a option.

Every version of Windows for the last 30 years has that option. Microsoft did add a lock function, which would prevent you from accidentally moving it. But since the advent of widescreen monitors I've put my taskbar on the left where it's otherwise unused real estate and to free up vertical space. Today with ultrawide monitors and multiple displays it's even worse having it stuck at the bottom.
