  1. How to fix Windows 10 not showing apps opened from taskbar?


    Build: Windows 10 17134

    I have a double-screen set up where the external display is the main one. When I try to move windows around with WIN+arrows shortcuts some Windows just disappear.

    For example, I open cmd. Then, I move the window around with the shortcuts (from main display to secondary display) and the window becomes invisible (it's shown as open but nowhere on the screen)

    I have a relatively fresh installation and saw this issue also in the past.

    How to fix Windows 10 not showing apps opened from taskbar?

    Note: this problem is usually solved by dragging another window half screen (snapping) and choosing the "invisible" one to appear on the second half. This is however merely a workaround (and it does work only most of the time but not always)

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Taskbar is not working and "fixes" don't fix it.

    Hi Carole,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing Taskbar on Windows 10. We will help you with resolving the issue.

    Provide us the additional information to understand the issue and assist you better:

    • What exactly happens when you press Alt+Tab keys from the keyboard to switch between the apps?
    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps you have tried to resolve the issue?

    As you said Taskbar is not working, and you will minimize all the opened apps to access the one you wish to from Taskbar. Be clear with how exactly you are trying to accessing the apps from Taskbar.

    Step 1: I suggest you to check if you have enabled the Auto-hide option for Taskbar, if so try to disable and check if it helps.

    Steps to enable auto-hide Taskbar:

    • Right click in the empty space on the Taskbar, click on
      Properties,
    • Under Taskbar tab, uncheck the Auto-hide the Taskbar option, click on
      Apply and Ok.

    Step 2: I suggest you to install all the pending updates on your device.

    • Connect to the internet.
    • Press Windows key and type
      updates.
    • Click on Check for updates.
    • Under Windows Updates, click on
      Check for updates.
    • Try to install the updates being shown.

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of this issue and brief description for further assistance.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    How to fix Windows 10 not showing apps opened from taskbar?

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. How to fix Windows 10 not showing apps opened from taskbar? :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
