You can tell that this setting is enabled because dragging one finger up or down will not scroll your screen, and selecting an icon will simply display a black box around that icon.

Firstly, open Settings on your Windows 11 and select Personalization from the left pane menu. Then select the Taskbar option from the right pane menu.
