    Start Menu not showing until taskbar hides. Am I the only one?


    Well the issue is pretty straight forward. I have enabled the "AUTO HIDE TASKBAR THINGY" on my notebook. But, when I use the mouse cursor to click on the Start Menu button on the taskbar (the Windows Logo) For some reason it waits for the taskbar to hide before showing the actual Start Menu.

    Pressing the Windows Keyboard Shortcut works just fine.

  2. Taskbar hides and shows itself after opening start menu.

    Steps:

    1. Using HDMI for a second monitor.
    2. Open start menu using the icon.
    3. Close start menu using the icon.
    4. Click anywhere other than the task bars. (e.g. an open window, the desktop, even the first monitor's desktop)
    5. Taskbar on second monitor slides down to be hidden.
    6. Taskbar then immediately slides up to reappear.

    If after closing the start menu (step 3), you click on the taskbar, then click outside the taskbar, this behavior does not occur.

    Performing the steps on the main monitor's taskbar does not produce this behavior.

    This has been happening for as long as I can remember using this laptop (~3years), with different nVidia drivers and Windows 10 updates.

  3. how to effectively hide or disable the taskbar?

    Hi,



    Did you try the “Auto-hide the taskbar” option from Taskbar properties?



    If you have not tried it, I would suggest you to follow these steps and auto-hide the taskbar:

    • Right click on Taskbar.
    • Click on Properties
    • Check the box Auto-hide the taskbar.
    • Click on OK.


    Hope this information helps.
