    Taskbar 'issues'


    I have noticed a slight issue with the taskbar which I hope microsoft will fix.

    The following 3 icons display a tooltip over the button (instead of above it) when you hover over them:

    1) Notifications
    2) Task View
    3) Onscreen Keyboard

    This means that I can't actually click the buttons without moving the mouse around to get the tooltip to disappear. It causes a slight delay and sometimes a few clicks to activate the button... a bit of a pain, especially for Notifications which I am using a lot.

    Anyone else have the same thing? I've assumed its an issue with W10 as opposed to my installation - may be wrong on that.

    :)

    Taskbar issue

    No changes made, no error messages, no new applications. I am not able to log into Pandora on Chrome. But I was able to get it working on Microsoft Edge. No troubleshooting done.

    Taskbar issue

    I need help getting my desktop to function the same as it did last week. For some reason, the taskbar isn't functioning the same. For example, last week when I had multiple programs open such as Excel, Outlook, QuickBooks (QB), and Word, I could switch
    between them by clicking on the icon for that program in my taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Now when I click on the icon it tries to open a separate instance of the program.
