  1. Taskbar keeps popping up when I try and play games through Microsoft store


    So I decided to try out the game pass stuff they had announced this weekend at E3. It's great so far but the one thing that continues to bug me is that whenever I hover my mouse over the bottom of the screen, the taskbar pops up. Its really starting to bug me and its sometimes tabs me out. I've tried a few things to fix it like task manger killing explorer but that didnt fix anything. I've never had this problem with any other platform ( i.e. Steam, Origins, etc.) Any suggestions?

    :)

  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.
