    Taskbar not hiding in borderless games


    When i play some videogame in borderless window format, the taskbar don't hide and i can click on it, if i activate the autohide option it will popup when i tuch the bottom part of the screen with the cursor.

    Before the last update, it have't done this not one time, i noticed this on League of Legends and Fortnite but i don't want to play with the fullscreen option because it will be slow when i do Alt+Tab during the game.

    I hope to solve this problem quickly, so i can come back playing with my friends.

    how to effectively hide or disable the taskbar?

    Hi,



    Did you try the “Auto-hide the taskbar” option from Taskbar properties?



    If you have not tried it, I would suggest you to follow these steps and auto-hide the taskbar:

    • Right click on Taskbar.
    • Click on Properties
    • Check the box Auto-hide the taskbar.
    • Click on OK.


    Hope this information helps.

    Taskbar in fullscreen borderless

    Hi!

    Recently I've run into a small problem with the taskbar. When I play games in fullscreen borderless where the game is still running when I ALT+Tab to another window the taskbar dissapears while the game is running. As soon as I close the game the taskbar
    reappears but as long as the game is running, minimized or not the taskbar is gone. It's still possible to bring it up with the windows-key but I was wondering if there is a solution to this issue.

    Thanks in advance!

    Mikael

    Taskbar not hiding in borderless games

    Taskbar isnt hiding

    The windows 10 taskbar wont (Frustratingly) hide when I do anything fullscreen related. For example, In youtube it goes fullscreen, but the taskbar wont hide. Same thing with games or anything fullscreen related. one example of "Anything fullscreen related"
    is a common steam game : Unturned. the taskbar wont hide during fullscreen mode. Also, Please do not suggest auto-hide. auto-hide is as cancerous as the problem itself, In my opinion.
