Of course, you can move it by following these directions I found on microsoft.com.
Typically, the taskbar is at the bottom of the desktop, but you can also move it to either side or the top of the desktop. When the taskbar is unlocked, you can change its location. See Lock and unlock the taskbar to find out if yours is locked. When you’ve confirmed that your taskbar is unlocked, press and hold or right-click any empty space on the taskbar. Select Taskbar settings > Taskbar location on screen, and then select Left, Top, Right, or Bottom.
