In case your understanding of that behaviour affects the translation
you're working on, be sure to stay close to the English meaning,
because if the word "taskbar" means something to Windows users, it
potentially doesn't on other systems, where either there is no taskbar
or the taskbar is named differently (or the concept is different).
