Problem:

Windows taskbar settings are not being retained in Windows 10 when using portability.

Symptoms:

Some taskbar settings are not retained with portability. Some examples of affected settings are locking the taskbar, taskbar location, autohide taskbar, etc.

Resolution: 

Default Windows Explorer portability rulesets - "Windows Explorer" and "Windows Explorer - 5.6" - contain the registry rule shown below:

Merge Tree HKCU 'Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2'

"StuckRects2" applies to Windows 7, not Windows 10. Instead, add a new registry rule in either/both Windows Explorer portability rulesets:

Merge Tree HKCU 'Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects3'

Operation - Merge
Scope - Tree
Hive - HKCU
Path - Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects3

Click "Add", "Save" and redeploy your configuration(s).
