    Unwanted overlay interfering with Start menu/Taskbar autohide


    When I open a certain program called Hitfilm Express, a couple of icons appear (microphone and refresh?) which didn't used to be there and there are preventing the Start menu and Taskbar responding whilst I'm using the program. Does anyone recognise the overlay or know how I can identify and destroy it?

  2. TaskBar Malfunctioning (AutoHide as well as Task Bar Menu deficiencies)

    My Windows 10 Taskbar does not consistently autohide. It will autohide for a while and then stops. Also, the taskbar will not hide behind programs like MS Word when I am typing. I need to see the bottom of the screen and the taskbar blocks my view. When
    I go into the Taskbar Properties and Start Menu to again autohide the taskbar, none of the changes I click (like move taskbar) will work, and it still shows the autohide taskbar box with a checkmark. The only solution is to re-boot until the next time the
    malfunction occurs.

    Please help.

    It was from the Nvidia GeForce Experience application. It's been vanquished.
