    Automatically Hide Taskbar in Desktop mode removes any icons on Taskbar


    Hello!


    I just purchased a new windows laptop, and as I was configuring the settings to display the taskbar like I it is on my desktop, I noticed a peculiar error when trying to hide the taskbar. I went to my Windows settings to check the "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" and whenever I do, all of the icons disappear except for the windows icon, the cortana home screen, and the taskview button. The icons for any programs do not appear, and the icons with the system tray disappears. When I disable the "Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" setting, the icons reappear.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    :)

  2. Hidden taskbar icons and taskbar icons options in CREATORS UPDATE

    Hi Davor,

    Taskbar shows us see the programs that we're currently using as well as those that we pinned. It helps us to easily navigate from one program to another. We can update the settings of your taskbar to show it on your desktop. Here's how:

    • Press the Windows icon on your keyboard.
    • Click on Settings (gear icon).
    • Select Personalization then go to Taskbar.
    • Check Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode and
      Automatically hide the taskbar in
      tablet mode options. Make sure to turn them off.

    Let us know if the steps above resolved your concern.

  3. program to hide the taskbar

    Hello,

    I Do not recommend you to use third party programs for that kind of things as it might cause system to dysfunction.

    I suggest you follow these steps

    Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar. (If you're in tablet mode, hold a finger on the taskbar.)

    Click taskbar settings.

    Toggle Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode to on. (You can also do the same for tablet mode.)
