  2. Windows 10 Upgrade Task Bar Auto Hide feature not working correctly

    I purchased a Lenovo G50 from Microsoft about 4 months ago....it came with Windows 8.1. In mid to late August I upgraded to Windows 10 and now the auto hide feature for the task bar won't keep the task bar hidden. If I reboot my system the auto hide feature
    will work for a period of time, 24 hours or less, and then the task bar stops hiding for some unknown reason. I called support on 4 different occasions (spent a total of about 6 hours on the phone with them) and they have no idea of what the problem may be.
    The best solution they came up with is for me to bring up the Task Manager, in the processes tab scroll down to Windows Explorer, right click then Restart. Then the auto hide feature of the task bar will work for a short period of time but always stops auto
    hiding after a little while. Phone Supports only other suggestion was for me to come here, to the Community, to get a solution. Please help.

  3. Task Bar Auto-Hide in Windows 10 Pro no longer working

    Hello Community:

    This issue has been around for quite a while and it does not seem to have generated a consensus issue fix. My Windows 10 Pro O/S was recently upgraded to 10.0.10586 Build 10586. Prior to the update, the task bar auto-hide function was working correctly.
    Soon after the update(s), the task bar would no longer auto-hide. I went into task bar properties, unchecked the 'auto-hide' box, clicked Apply, and then reversed the sequence. After I placed a check in the auto-hide box and clicked Apply, the task bar briefly
    retracted and then popped right back up. The task bar will no longer auto hide.

    My HP Pavilion dv7 notebook has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series display card. The display driver is up to date. Any suggestions from the community to fix the non-working auto-hide issue? Thank you.

    Auto hide not working for task bar in Windows 10

    Windows 10 task bar does not always auto hide, At start up the task bar seems to work OK but if I start an app such as EXCEL the task bar will not hide and I have to minimize EXCEL to see the worksheet tabs. Doing productive work is almost impossible
    with the task bar problem.
