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


    I have the same question that was asked here. I've been having exactly the same issue since beginning of usage Windows 10. The only thing that helps is killing explorer.exe process and starting it again. Four years and a half passed since the problem has been issued and no solution at all. Seems like MS does not give a **** about its products usability.

  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.

  3. Minimize, Maximize and Restore taskbar showing on the top of the screen in Windosw 10.

    Hello Valerie,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:


    • Are you taking about the taskbar which is shifted to top of the screen?

    • Does the “white bar” show up when you hover your mouse over to the top of the screen?


    If you are referring to the taskbar, whose location is now changed to top of the screen, it is because of the changed taskbar settings in the PC.



    Method 1: I suggest you to follow the steps below to change the taskbar settings and check if the issue is resolved.




    • Hover the mouse to the location of the “white bar”, right-click and select
      Properties.

    • From the window, select Bottom under
      Taskbar location on screen option.

    • Click on Apply and OK
      to check if the changes are effective.


    Method 2: If the issue persist, I suggest you to run
    System Maintenance troubleshooter and check if the issue persist.



    System Maintenance troubleshooter will find and clean up unused files and shortcuts present on the system, and perform maintenance tasks which will enhance the performance of the PC.




    • Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type
      Troubleshooting and select the top most search result.

    • Select View all from the left side panel of the window.

    • Select System Maintenance from the listed options, click on
      Advanced option and check Apply repairs automatically
      option.

    • Follow the on screen instructions.

    • Close the window after the troubleshooting is complete and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the answers to the above questions and the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
