  1. Where is the setting to start programs on the same screen as the taskbar?


    I have multiple monitors and have configured my taskbar to appear on all monitors. When I start a new program from the taskbar on a secondary monitor, the initial window appears on the primary monitor, and I have to drag the program over to the correct monitor.


    I was not able to find the setting for letting programs start on the same monitor as the taskbar where they are started from. Where can I find that setting?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Taskbar sometimes on top of full-screen applications

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to change the Screen Resolution and check if this helps. Follow the steps below to do the same:

    • Press ‘Windows ’ key on the keyboard.
    • In the search box, type Settings
    • SelectSystem > Display > Advanced display settings.
    • Under Resolution, select a new value. We suggest you stick with the resolution marked
      "(Recommended)”.
    Also try locking and then unlocking the Taskbar and check if this helps. Follow the steps below:

    • Right-click an empty space on the taskbar.
    • If Lock the Taskbar has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked.
    • If it does not have a check mark, click Lock the Taskbar.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.

    Click taskbar settings.

    Toggle Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode to on. (You can also do the same for tablet mode.)
