    Taskbar pops up while playing a game in fullscreen mode


    Tried using MS Store apps but have repeatedly ran into this issue which severely destroys any semblance of enjoyment; When using a Windows Store UWP Game, if my mouse hits the taskbar area, the taskbar pops up and locks my inputs (as it thinks I want to click on my taskbar, not the big full screen app I am currently engaging in). How do I disable that from happening? I have looked high and low, and only got silly answers like "Make sure the game is in fullscreen" Yeah, it is. Ive been PC gaming for over a decade, I know how to set Full Screen, not Windowed or w/e crazyness. Also, no, "Auto-Hide Taskbar" is equally as useless, as again when my mouse ventures to the lower part of the screen, the damn taskbar pops up interrupting my gaming experience.

    How do I fix this ungodly annoyance?

  2. Taskbar pops up while playing a game in fullscreen mode

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that the Taskbar pops up when the mouse hovers at the bottom of the screen, while the game is running in Full screen mode. Ideally, some games allow you to hide the Taskbar while playing games and some will show the Taskbar by default.
    We would like to know, if this issue occurs with all the games or only with one particular game.



    If you are facing this issue with one particular game, then there must be some in game setting that you might have to change. If you are facing this issue with all the games, then you can try one workaround and see if that helps.



    The workaround is to close Windows Explorer process while you are playing game. This will allow you to play the game uninterruptedly. However, when you End the Windows Explorer process, all the windows that are running in the background will be closed,
    which allow you to play the game without any interruption of the Taskbar. When you want all the windows back, you can restart the Windows Explorer process.



    Please follow the steps mentioned below to do the same:



    1. Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc key while playing game, this will open
      Task Manager.
    2. Look for Windows Explorer process, right click on it and select
      End Task.
    3. When you want the windows back, open Task Manager by following
      Step 1, and click on File.
    4. Click on Run new task, type
      explorer.exe
      and click on OK. Windows Explorer will be restarted and you will have all the windows back again.


    Meanwhile, I would also encourage you to provide a feedback using the
    feedback hub
    on Windows 10, so that our engineering team can look into this.

    Taskbar pops up while playing a game in fullscreen mode

    Taskbar in fullscreen

    When I am in fullscreen watching youtube video or playing a game my taskbar hides as it should but when I go down with my mouse it appears again. So basically I can not play video games on the internet in fullscreen because everytime I want to look down
    for example my taskbar pops up and it prevents me from doing so. Also when I am watching youtube video and want to exit fullscreen I go with my mouse to the bottom right corner I again my taskbar appears and I can not click the button.
