Switch: Add Second Taskbar To Windows 10. The taskbar in Windows operating system is customizable in many ways.
You can pin websites, programs and folders, move the taskbar to any left, right, top or bottom (default location) of the screen, change the taskbar color, make the taskbar transparent, and more. If you like to pin tens of programs to the taskbar, you might like the idea of a second taskbar. The second taskbar allows you to pin apps, just like the primary taskbar. Since Windows 10 doesn’t have a provision for two taskbars on the same screen, we need to go for a third-party tool. Switch is a free program designed to add a second taskbar to Windows 10. The Switch program lets you pin up to 9 programs to its taskbar. All pinned programs to the Switch taskbar can be accessed using the Alt + 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9 keyboard shortcuts.
After installing the Switch, hover the mouse cursor over the Switch taskbar, click on the plus icon on the Switch taskbar to begin adding programs to the Switch taskbar. Juniper broadens SD-Branch management, switch options. Juniper has taken the wraps off new software and switches that are designed to broaden user options in deploying software-defined branch offices and enterprise networks.
The company bolstered its Contrail SD-WAN cloud package to include support for SD-LAN-specific operations, such as provisioning of new devices and managing branch office LANs. "From one cloud portal, customers can now provision Juniper EX Series switches to manage LAN fabrics and configure LAN virtualization and security policies in the same way they operate their SD-WAN environments," wrote Manoj Leelanivas, chief product officer at Juniper, in a blog about the enhancements. "This automated functionality simplifies operations to reduce costs, streamline workflows and leverage the WAN and LAN network for connected security.
In addition to the cloud-managed SD-WAN solution, these features will also be in the downloadable controller software for optional on-premises deployment. "
