  1. Cortana and task bar


    I have Cortana turned off in its settings because I do not use it. I've never set it up. However, whenever I move my arrow to the bottom of the screen, for example, if I want to scroll the the right or left, the task bar pops up and freezes in place so that I can no longer see what is on the bottom of the screen. I have the task bar setting so that the task bar is not supposed to freeze. I've discovered that it seems to be caused by Cortana. If I click on the Cortana button and then back on to my screen, the task bar will then go away. I tried hiding the Cortana button, but the task bar was still freezing and then I had to unhide Cortana so that I could click on it so that the task bar would go away and I could see the bottom of my screen. Moving the task bar to the side has not helped because it just freezes in place there and I can't see the side of my screen. I've tried shutting everything off related to Cortana in the settings, but nothing is helping. Short of completely removing Cortana via the registry I'm not sure what else to try. Can someone help because it is getting really annoying to have to click on Cortana and then back on the screen every time I want to unfreeze the task bar. Thanks.

    :)

  3. task bar not responding

    Hi,

    There are several possible reasons why the task bar is not working as expected. One of them may be caused by a corrupted user profile. In your case, we'd like to ask for additional information to help us determine the appropriate steps to solve the issue.
    Please answer the following:

    • Have you made any recent changes or installed updates before the task bar stopped responding?
    • Was the task bar working after you have created the user profile?
    • Have you checked if the issue also exists with the other user profiles?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    For initial troubleshooting, you can follow the steps in this article:

    .

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Cortana and task bar

    Cortana - Search and Task Bar

    I have the same problems witch Task Bar, Cortana, Search Bar as other users, who wrote before me.

    Is this going to be fixed by Microsoft, or we have to try all kind of suggestions from professionals?

    I don't have access to any initial applications supplied with Windows 10. Task bar doesn't open.

    Cortana is there only in a name. Cortana bar with Search don't respond. I badly need some of applications

    originally present with Windows 10.

    Tell me what to do in clear, simple instructions, please?

    Thank You - Alexandra Mankiewicz - L:
