Meanwhile, the latest news says that Microsoft is already working on pushing the taskbar features and design on all windows 10 OS.
Moreover, if you don’t like to wait for Microsoft, here you can still get the windows 10 X taskbar on your Windows PC using FalconX.
“FalconX gives you control over the position of your taskbar icons. FalconX will give you an original Windows dock like feel.

Also, you can Restart or Stop the FalconX app. But there is a bug on “Restart and Stop” Bottom. Because it doesn’t work. So you have to close the app from the task manager and even after that you must restart the PC then you get your default windows 10 taskbar.
