    Windows includes a special application desktop toolbar called the taskbar that shows on the bottom of a display screen by default. The taskbar allows you to find, see, open, and switch between your apps. You can also see the specify how taskbar buttons group together when you have more than one window open.

    If you have more than one main display by default. The other taskbars show without the notification area on any other connected display that is not set as your main display.

  3. Windows 10 taskbar will reappear when app is in full screen mode.

    Hello Ecarnate,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    • You mean to say, the taskbar will appear on hover when app is in full screen mode?
    • Is this happening for all Windows 10 apps that can run in full screen mode?
    • If not, then for which app this is happening?
    Usually when you switch an app to full screen mode, then the taskbar will automatically hide on background. When you switch back the app to normal mode then the taskbar will reappear again. From your description, I see that taskbar is still appearing in
    full screen view.

    Yes, when you scroll the mouse cursor completely to the bottom of the screen, then taskbar will reappear even in full screen mode. This is as per Windows 10 design. You can only prevent this by not moving the cursor completely to the bottom of the screen.

    Suggest you to post your feedback in this regard using Windows Feedback app, which will help us to improve you experience.

    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.

    Show Taskbar in Full Screen mode in Windows 10

    taskbar on multiple screens (XP)

    Hi, at work we use three screens, with XP installed, on the PC i was using before it had the taskbar on just the left screen and when i maximised a window it would fill whatever screen the window was currently on. The pc i now use, has a task bar stretched across the three screens and when i maximise something it will automatically fill the left screen. Is there a way to change either of these things as i prefer the taskbar on the left screen and to maximise on the screen the window is in. Thanks

  5. Windows 10 Taskbar sometimes on top of full-screen applications

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to change the Screen Resolution and check if this helps. Follow the steps below to do the same:

    • Press ‘Windows ’ key on the keyboard.
    • In the search box, type Settings
    • SelectSystem > Display > Advanced display settings.
    • Under Resolution, select a new value. We suggest you stick with the resolution marked
      "(Recommended)”.
    Also try locking and then unlocking the Taskbar and check if this helps. Follow the steps below:

    • Right-click an empty space on the taskbar.
    • If Lock the Taskbar has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked.
    • If it does not have a check mark, click Lock the Taskbar.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
