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
