    I would have to minimize the window and adjust the volume on the task bar


    Good morning!

    Yesterday, on my second monitor, I was able to go into full screen mode while watching Netflix with the task bar out of sight. When I needed to adjust the volume a little higher than the Netflix volume, I would have to minimize the window and adjust the volume on the task bar (all of this while the laptop lid is closed). Now, when I have Netflix on full screen mode, the task bar in showing (while the lid is closed). I didn't change any settings. As a matter of fact, ever since I got this new computer I haven't changed anything, and the full screen mode has been just fine on the second monitor until today.

    I've looked online for answers and had found some different settings that didn't change anything. I have it on auto hide right now and when it's full screen it does auto hide. But as soon as i close the lid to the laptop the auto hide function doesn't work and it's open at the bottom of the screen. I'm using windows 10 and it's up to date.

    :)
