  1. Windows 10 taskbar, auto hide, 3 or more rows high, will always return to 2


    Since a number of years I struggle with this. On my computers (Home and Enterprise) I normally have at least 2 screens connected. I always set up the taskbar as unlocked, auto hide, small icons, not combining, repeated on all screens, and then I make them at least 3 lines high, sometimes more.

    Whenever I reboot the computer (or sometimes even on unplugging or plugging an additional screen) the number of lines will reduce, sometimes by 1, sometimes it will jump back to 2 lines. I found no way to keep a number of lines > 2 stable after the next reboot.

    Does some setting exist that will allow this? Or do I have a conflict between the different settings? Any input will be welcome.

    :)

  4. Windows 10 taskbar, auto hide, 3 or more rows high, will always return to 2

    Auto hide taskbar not working

    I know how to 'auto-hide'!

    IT IS NOT WORKING - the frustrating thing is that this is a known problem and is not being addressed. It may appear to be a small matter but it is not. Wherever the taskbar is situated (top, bottom, either side) it covers part of the screen and is TOTALLY
    annoying!!!!!!!

    PLEASE FIX IT and help us all.
