    how to get task bar to hide again after it appears


    Hello,


    I get the fact that if I move my cursor to the location of the task bar either bottom or side, depending on my setup, but when I move my cursor away from the task bar, it doesn't hide again. This is problematic when the task bar is at the bottom and I have a spreadsheet in full mode - I can't get to the tabs at the bottom because the task bar hides them. If I move the task bar to the right side, then I can't get to the 'x' to close a window. The only thing I have found to work is to toggle the windows icon, which brings up the full task bar and then hides it. Is there any other setting I can use?

    :)
