    Taskbar sometimes does not hide

    Hey all,

    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.

    Any ideas?

    When Windows thinks you have unread notifications, the taskbar stays visible. Sometimes Windows messes up.

    Thanks for your input cameos
