    toolbar/taskbar


    Hi new to this page and hoping for some desperately needed help!!!!!
    I have windows 10 now ( i think a mistake and can't go back) but my tool/task bar won't auto hide. Somedays it will for a moment or opening new tabs, then it jusy stays put and won't go away.....
    Any ideas , suggestions would be wonderful

    :)

  2. Task bar resize

    The double bar probably means some toolbar is shown.

    Right Click the Taskbar>Toolbar>Hide the toolbars shown.

    Unlock the Taskbar by unchecking Lock the taskbar and then try dragging it to smaller size.

  3. Taskbar resets to one row each time I reboot after Creators Update

    I have only recently upgraded to windows Creator and suffered from losing the bottom row of the taskbar each time I restart windows.



    I have tried lots of permutations 'supposed fixes' but my latest (might be different tomorrow!!) observations highlight the taskbar TOOLBARS:



    - If I remove all Toolbars from the taskbar, Restart = NO rows are lost.

    - With a toolbar applied to taskbar and taskbar locked Restart = NO rows are lost.

    - With a toolbar applied to taskbar and taskbar NOT locked Restart = ONE row lost.



    I also use a 3rd monitor with my laptop via a

    XCSOURCE USB 3.0 To HDMI HD 1080P Video Cable Adapter Converter

    with this there 'seems' to be an extra problem:

    - With a toolbar applied to taskbar and taskbar locked Restart = ONE row lost.

  4. toolbar/taskbar

    Hello nessa Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    I have to assume you saw 10 go on as an upgrade from the previous version correct? Often an upgrade install to a newer version of Windows will simply come out "Buggy" with either some immediate headaches or minor issues that slowly appear after 10 has been on for a period of time.

    IF immediately found to be a headache the Clean Install option is then the best possible move. But you would also need to Download Windows 10 either for the immediate upgrade option to repair, see the 10 media created using a 8gb size flash drive at this time, or simply save the "Windows.iso" file to a folder on the drive. You can later mount the ISO image on a virtual cd rom drive to see an Upgrade to Repair type install.

    For some minor issues however like a glitch you can first try a run of the System File Checker tool opening a command prompt and typing the "sfc /scannow" command. The system tool will look around for any important files that didn't go on good or never found their way onto the drive to begin with. If you should see the message that some files were not able to be fixed the problem would be a little more involved.
