  1. Task bar-pinnable batch script (or equivalent) to restart Windows Explorer?


    Every few windows button-presses to access my task bar while having a borderless fullscreen window up, the task bar stays visible even when I click back into the borderless window. I assume this is as some consequence of all the things I've forcibly disabled & broken in an attempt to re-gain some modicum of control & privacy on my PC (things like the menu you access via the button in the bottom-right corner of the screen also doesn't work, and when the task bar glitches out the start menu search stops working, oh well, not what I'm asking for help with in this post). The only way to fix this is to restart the Explorer process. Having to open task manager, find Explorer (it randomly likes to appear at the top or bottom), and restart gets tedious when I have to do it several times a day, so is there any way to automate this so I can just press a button on the stuck task bar to restart Explorer & make it go away? Thanks.

  2. auto trivia restart script?

    I know everyone is so busy here so I'm suggesting an auto restart script so trivia is a benefit instead of a burden. Can anyone make this script?

  3. Task scheduler simply refuses to run a batch script

    Thank you for helping me to find the problem Task bar-pinnable batch script (or equivalent) to restart Windows Explorer? :)

    Apparently the problem was not that the batch script did not run in task scheduler—in fact, it was the particular command in the batch script. When I ran the task with the updated batch commands that you provided me above, I did not see the background change
    Task bar-pinnable batch script (or equivalent) to restart Windows Explorer? :(, but the log file said that the task started and ended. Yet when I manually ran the script, it changed the background as intended.

    And I am stuck again. But at least... PROGRESS Task bar-pinnable batch script (or equivalent) to restart Windows Explorer? :)
