    Taskbar automatically pops up while playing games


    Bought GEars 4 started to play. Everything suits, but the game often turns out that the top / bottom panel crawls out, which leads to inconvenience, as well as a spontaneous pause in the game every 30 seconds …

    It is clear that the work of WIN10 applications works this way, but what, on a mouse, is it now impossible to play at all ??? I have a XONE gamepad, but I don’t know how to use it in shooters, and I don’t want to be able to do it, so I play the mouse + keyboard. Fullscreen is enabled in the game settings.
    How to deal with this problem?

  2. Taskbar above windowed games - Windows 10

    Hello,

    I realize your concern, please an answer few query to assist you further.

    1. Is this issue specific to a particular game or for all games?

    For your information, usually the taskbar appears when you move the cursor. If it is appearing continuously, then it might be conflict with the software. Restarting the Computer might fix the issue.

    I suggest you to double mouse click on the game window when the Taskbar appears and check if it works.

    Also, suggest you to select the Lock the taskbar option from the taskbar from the below steps:

    1. Right click on taskbar.
    2. From the list of option, click on Lock the taskbar option.
    3. Restart the computer.

    Do let us know the update.

    Thank you.

  3. Search and taskbar keeps popping up

    Hi Sazmo,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.



    Are you referring to taskbar preview window pop-ups?



    If yes, there is no option to disable the taskbar window pop-ups when you hover the mouse, this is by design.

    However you may Auto-hide taskbar by following the below steps and check if it helps.


    • Right click on the taskbar and select properties.

    • In the Taskbar tab, Place a tick mark for Auto-hide the taskbar.
    You may provide your suggestions in the feedback app.

    It will be directly referred by our developer’s team for further improvement.

    Follow the steps:

    • Go to Start, enter the phrase Windows Feedback, and then select Windows Feedback.
    • See if someone else has given similar feedback by entering the topic, such as Microsoft Music.
    • If you find similar feedback, select it, add any details, and then select Me too.
    • To narrow your search to a specific category, pick the category that most closely matches your feedback (so it gets to the right people quickly). For example, for feedback about the Music app, select Apps > Music.
    • If you don’t find any similar feedback, select New Feedback, and choose a topic from Select a category and then select a subcategory.
    • Enter your feedback (the more details the better!), add a screenshot if you can, and you're done.

    Hope the information helps. Do reply if you need further assistance.
