Definition: Taskbar


An on-screen toolbar that displays all active applications as well as inactive applications if configured to do so. If the app was minimized, clicking its Taskbar icon restores the window to its previous size and location on screen. Windows 95 popularized this feature. The Mac counterpart is the Dock (see Mac Dock). See Win Taskbar and Pin to taskbar.
