  2. Bar on top of screen

    I don't really know what happened but there is this bar on top of my screen that won't go away. It's like a shortcut for a bowser, but theres no way for me to get rid of it. I was wondering if there's a way to get rid of it?

    If you are referring to the Start Menu, there would be no reason to have it under anything when you clicked on the Windows icon. The whole purpose is to show it on top of everything else so you can select the program you were looking for.

    If you are referring to the Taskbar at the bottom of the screen, it doesn't have a 'behind' setting, but you can hide it by right-clicking on it and choosing Settings. There two options for hiding it, one for desktop mode and one for tablet mode.

    If you have an application opened in full screen, 'throw' your cursor to the edge of the screen and the taskbar should reveal itself:

    Borderless is still a window. It just doesn't have a border around the edges. Therefore the taskbar will always be visible unless you hide it. Games that play Fullscreen mode are the only things that hide your taskbar.

    i play eve online in borderless. and there is no taskbar... *smokegif*

    btw you's did still not answer the question!

    why is the illusive taskbar hiding function gone?

    What do you mean by "Gone", taskbar hiding function is still there ?
    It's up to a program/game to decide to cover it or not.

    Gone = can't play and do what i want without taskbar covering the most important part of the monitor... \ didnt used to do that before so why is it "back"?
    m0nk3n, Dec 15, 2016
  12. Again, some games run in borderless mode. That mode is still a window. Therefore the taskbar still shows up. Games that run fullscreen take over the entire monitor and the taskbar is not visible. They are 2 different modes of operation. I don't play Eve online but I'm pretty sure it is a fullscreen app.

    And I did answer the question. the hide the taskbar function is controlled through Settings > Personalization > Taskbar or you can right-click on the taskbar and click on Settings there.

    Now, if you want borderless games to take over the screen, read this thread. It has an app that can help. However, as with all downloads, use caution.

    Play all your games in Windowed borderless mode. - Steam Users' Forums

    yeah. windows doesnt have that function anymore. to give command to program "in-front" of windows. it used to do that before the AU thingy... i could play all my 200+ games on steam + lots of other platforms in borderless without the startbar on the 1\25th of the bottom screen. diablo 3 borderless, doesnt show the start bar. eve online, doesnt show the start bar, farming sim 17, shows the start bar, and there is nothing in the config files. stardew valley, doesnt show the start bar.. functionality gone.... but i'm not raging over it, just wanted to know if windows still had that program in use is program in focus completely edit anymore.
