    Taskbar glitches when alt-tabbing

    While this isn't a serious problem, it's definitely a hell of an annoyance. When I alt-tab from several full-screen games, such as League of Legends, this is the result, sometimes it differs. In the image below, you can clearly see that something's wrong with the taskbar. I would also like to tell you, that when I hover the cursor on the taskbar, they return to normal.

    When the taskbar is in its normal state, the search bar is there, correct?

    Killing and restarting explorer.exe should fix that. Just open task manager, kill explorer.exe and restart it (file -> run new task -> explorer.exe).

    Appears to be random occurrence for me, I've had it happen once so far when alt tabbing out of Dota 2.
