  1. Taskbar


    Just recently, my taskbar in Windows 10 has been acting up. I have made all selections in the "Settings" menu to have the taskbar hide itself unless I "hover" and bring it up. It works as I wish for about 10 to 15 minutes. At that point it fixes itself to the bottom of the screen and will not disappear. I have tried some of the online solutions and they are ineffective. The only way to get it to work correctly is a cold boot. Thank you for your time and attention to this request.

    :)

    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.

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


    Hope this information helps.
