Freeform window mode (Android 7.0+)

Taskbar lets you launch apps in freeform floating windows on Android 7.0+ devices. No root access is required, although Android 8.0, 8.1, and 9 devices require an adb shell command to be run during initial setup.

Simply follow these steps to configure your device for launching apps in freeform mode:

1. Check the box for "Freeform window support" inside the Taskbar app
2. Follow the directions that appear in the pop-up to enable the proper settings on your device (one-time setup)
3. Go to your device's recent apps page and clear all recent apps
4. Start Taskbar, then select an app to launch it in a freeform window

For more information and detailed instructions, click "Help & instructions for freeform mode" inside the Taskbar app.

It does enable the feature, and the window flows effortlessly, but resizing is very difficult. Wish there was a dedicated resizing, from fullscreen, to floating.

Best Launcher, keeps everything in one place.

Wicked home screen replacement on a laptop running android_x86. Not quite so sure of how much it adds to my Chromebook but will leave it installed and see if I make much use of it. Will be buying the donate version. Would like to see a few more refinements....so hopefully development is still ongoing. 1) Some control of transparency and text colour in the search box. Light theme with transparency does not have good readability as it stands. 2) Widget list with a bit more info on which widget is which for apps with multiple widgets. 3) Some option to further categorise apps. I guess expandable folders.....

It's great but, could you add a DPI changer as on mobile this is a bit difficult. Also please implement the Nougat Developer Options Screen Size so it's compatible with the Android features. Don't forget to change it back!

I love this app. It has replaced my tablet's NOVA DOCK. Except for one thing. It only reaches about a third of the way across the bottom of my screen. If you could please make it a variable width, I'd sure appreciate that. Thanks.

Waiting for left to right /right to left swap positioning option. If position then improve that arrow click icon

Can use it with Android n for a simple desktop replacement nice work by dev


So cool!

Sampad Chakraborty

It's nice. But I keep going back to my old launcher as widgets are not directly visible. Is there a way to make the widgets appear on desktop wallpaper? Instead on having to click on dashboard to view widgets?
