Hello

I am working on windows 10 image where we have to customize start menu and taskbar. I created an xml which works great for start menu. But I tried to add taskbar it wont work.
Please find attached working start menu
I kept this xml in my c drive, and local policy is set to take this xml.
I tried adding some thing like below for taskbar
"<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    xmlns:start="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/StartLayout"
    xmlns:taskbar="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/TaskbarLayout"
    Version="1">
