    Sometimes, mousing over my auto-hidden taskbar will not show the taskbar while my browser/application is maximized.

    Here's what happens. My taskbar is set to auto-hide. I'm on an application, usually a web browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox, or other applications such as iTunes or VLC video player, and the application is set to maximized size (not fullscreen). Normally,
    despite the application being maximized, mousing to the bottom of the screen where my taskbar is allows the taskbar to be shown. But sometimes, especially after having watched a video in fullscreen and then exiting fullscreen, mousing to the bottom of the
    screen does not show my taskbar. The only option for me is to un-maximize the window, mouse to the bottom of the screen to show the taskbar, click the taskbar, and then re-maximize the window. While a simple fix, this is a very tedious procedure as this problem
    occurs very often. Is there a way to make it so that the taskbar always shows up when moused over while an application is maximized?

    I don't think it matters but I'm using a Lenovo Edge 15 laptop running Windows 10.

  3. the taskbar is not being hidden when using apps on fullscreen

    I'm on 15063.632. I've noticed that when watching YouTube videos on fullscreen, or watching local video files through VLC Media Player, or doing a video call on fullscreen through Skype, the taskbar stays on screen. The taskbar is not locked. I had to
    choose "automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode" to hide it, but this hides the taskbar even when I'm not watching videos or having a video call. I only want to hide the task bar when I'm watching videos or doing a video call.
