    Did Windows 10 Anniversary Edition affect taskbar in full screen mode?


    Normally when any game is played in full screen mode, the taskbar is hidden; this has been Windows behaviour for forever. Yesterday I update my Surface Pro 3 with the anniversary edition. Today I played 2 seperate games, and now both will show the taskbar over their screen which, if clicked on, hides the game; in affect, the game now acts as a window which is not the same size as the desktop. Has anyone else noticed this change?

    P.

    :)

    Taskbar showing through fullscreen mode

    Hello, ever since I did the anniversary update on my windows 10, the taskbar is showing on top of another app's full-screen mode. Like when I try to watch something in VLC or netflix on fullscreen.

    I don't want to hide my taskbar all the time and I can't find an option in the settings that'll fix the issue.

  3. Photo App not working correctly after Windows 10 Anniversary Update

    Old title: Photo App in Windows 10 Anniversary Update

    Just updated Windows 10 to Version 1607 (Anniversary Update). In the previous Windows 10 version, when I double-clicked a JPG file in Windows Explorer, the file would open in full screen in the Photos app. After the update, the Photos App now automatically
    minimizes to an icon in the Taskbar instead! Clicking on the Photos icon in the taskbar brings up the JPG file in full screen, but it remains hidden behind the Windows Explorer screen, which I then have to minimize to see the JPG.

    Known problem? How do I correct this? Thanks.
