    Taskbar and Start Menu Disappears From Time to Time


    I am using latest release of Windows 10 using an external monitor with a Dell Inspiron. I have the laptop lid closed so that monitor is off so I am only using external monitor. I cannot see start menu or task bar on bottom of screen. I was looking for options in my monitor menu to shift image vertically but it does not have it.

    Also if I point my mouse just below the left corner and click nothing comes up (tried this to see if start menu was there and just out of sight)

    I also tried to adjust scaling using Intel HD Graphics Control Panel. I can crop the vertical image smaller than monitor but still no task bar.

    If I hit the windows key I get the start menu but not taskbar. If I reboot it comes back but from time to time this bug will reappear.

    :)

    The start menu is not on the taskbar

    I've loaded Windows 10 twice now, from windows 7, and the start menu does not appear on the taskbar. The first time it was there but then it disappeared . Second time it did not appear at all. The start menu does not appear to be on my system. There is
    no application for start menu. Help please. I like everything else about 10 except this. Thank you, John.
