I have Windows10 with dual monitors. When I start Windows the taskbar on Monitor 2 is visible and won't move. If I turn Cortana on and off it resumes auto-hiding but I have to do this every time I start Windows 10.
When I am running an app in a full-screen windowed, I can sometimes make it hide by Alt-tabbing to the program. (Even though the program was already in focus.)
Pretty much the rest of the time, it's always up. I've tried flipping it back and forth, and sometimes that will fix it for a few minutes, but no longer than that.
I'm running 10130, and this system was upgraded from Win7 somewhere when build numbers were in the upper 9k mark. I'm not interested in doing a complete wipe and re-install unless it is absolutely necessary for continued functionality of my system. It will take me way too long to put everything back.
Really this wouldn't be so much of a problem if it didn't cover the bottom of every application I run in a large window or maximized. With build 10130 though, it's gotten to the point where it just doesn't want to hide anymore. Until they fix the issue with full-screen applications not rendering correctly.
Usually this works but now it doesn't. I can move it to left, right sides and top and bottom but there will not auto hide. I click Apply and OK but to no avail. Tried unchecking the option box and re checking but no luck.
I'm finding the taskbar to be useful in desktop mode (where I tend to be using more apps), but to be a waste of space in tablet mode (where I want a full-screen experience). Is there any way to set the taskbar to auto-hide only in tablet mode?
Even though I have it set in Properties to auto hide the task bar, it stays up on the screen. This has caused some difficulty when I've tried to download a program in Edge, and the "Run" button is hidden behind the exposed task bar.
Task bar is set to auto hide and is at the bottom of the screen. Everything works Ok until computer goes into sleep mode and when I wake it up the task bar will not reappear until I either reboot or open task manager and restart Windows Explorer. Everything then works until the computer next goes into sleep mode when I have to repeat the process. However, if I move the task bar to the left side of the screen it keeps working after being in sleep mode. I don't have to reboot or restart Windows Explorer like I do if it is at the bottom of the screen. It's quite an annoyance to have to restart Windows Explorer and it is also an annoyance trying to keep the task bar on the left of the screen since I had it placed at the bottom for so many years.
I have noticed this for a while. I have the task bar set to auto hide - this works most of the time, but, occasionally it stays up on screen and won't hide. Not the end of the world, but, it would be good have this niggle solved.
I'm using Build TH1 10240 with all updates (just checked before I posted this to be sure) dual booting W7 and W10 with no known problems other than the taskbar issue.
The taskbar hides and appears fine when nothing is up but the desktop, or the settings window and other items from the computer but doesn't hide when a have IE up, I'm using IE11, just don't care much for Edge yet, maybe as time goes by I'll start using it more.
Anytime I have IE up the taskbar stays visible and will not hide, I went to properties to reset it, tried this a few times, uncheck the box>apply, then check the box>apply, after I click apply the taskbar momentarily hides and immediately pops back into view.
I know others (Jimbo) were having an issue with this on earlier builds. It didn't happen every time for me, just every once in awhile but on 10240 it's every time.
It's not a huge thing but I've always hid the taskbar and would like to do it on W10 too.
I like all the synchronization Windows 10 introduced, except for two things:
1. hide or unhide start menu. On some PCs it should be hidden, on some it shouldn't. But sync causes all PCs to have the same settings for this.
2. background! I get 'corrupted' background images if one of my PCs changes desktop and I log into another one. Reason? Different resolutions on the displays used. The original resolution is replicated; missing space is filled up with bars of parts of the original image
So... Is there a way I can keep everything synced as-is, except for these two options?
I have almost got Windows Explorer to what I am used to using. Anyway, what the arrows are pointing to in this picture are called, and how I would go about hiding them? Also, is it possible to hide the Libraries? Using the Navigation Pane properties to check or uncheck Libraries has no effect.
I am having to use a windwos 8.1 AMD graphics driver because the AMD HD6320 series graphics still has no updated driver from AMD to support windows 10. The video freezes and goes green with the HD6320 driver. The win 8.1 driver works great except windows 10 keep updating and reinstalling the standard driver for the HD6320. I haven't found a way to hide an update in windows 10 like I could in windows 7.
I have my user account which is connected with ms account which shows my email along with my user name on login screen. I made one more admin account without ms account and made it a default user with password. Now on login screen on left side both my accounts show up. Is there way to hide my original account from this login screen because I do not want anyone sitting with me could know my email as this account shows my email along with user name.
Ever since Windows XP icons in the tray bar automatically hide when unused. Since I believe Windows Vista there was the option to make those tray icons visible so they didn't hide even when they were not used. I cannot seem to find this option in Windows 10, how I make sure the tray icons won't hide?
I want the icons in the big square to just be next to the others on the taskbar.In Windows 7 and 8/8.1 (and maybe also XP and Vista I don't remember) I know you could just right-click the arrow and mark a checkbox but there is no such thing in Windows 10.
