Windows 11 doesn't seem to provide support for toolbars on the taskbar. It's likely this will move to the 'Widgets' area or you have to rely on an application that creates a system tray icon.

Hello and welcome to Community,

 

Windows 11 is still in development, please report all issues you may experience to Microsoft via your channel for submitting feedback on preview builds.

Returning here with a solution that might work for you. You can enable classic start menu in Windows 11 if you are really desperate for the battery toolbar right now.

  1. Open the Windows 11 Start menu by clicking the Windows key on the taskbar.
  2. Type regedit and then click Registry Editor in the search results.
  3. Click Yes in the User Account Control dialog to give Registry Editor permission to run.
  4. In the Registry Editor application in the left pane, expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Explorer > Advanced.

Kind regards,

@Ironmanav3000, regarding the above suggestion to make changes to the registry, I do not recommend working in the registry at this time. (If you care to do so after Windows 11 is officially released, please make a backup of the registry first. I am sure by that time there will be instructions available for working in the Windows 11 Registry.)

 

For now, as Andy_Lenovo, mentioned, please use your official method of reporting any issues and/or suggestions for current Windows 11 builds to the Windows 11 Team at Microsoft.
