    Auto-Hide the taskbar function not working

    Since this morning Windows 10 "Auto-Hide the taskbar" function is not working despite proper settings.

    Any suggestion?


    Found a solution at the following:
    Fix: Taskbar Auto-Hide Feature Not Working On Windows 10

    "Try restarting File Explorer or Windows Explorer" option worked for me

    Fingers crossed... and sorry for the post, I google all morning for a solution and couldn't find it.

    Auto hide not working in Windows 10 - Solution

    Go to Task Manager

    Scroll to 'Windows Explorer'

    Right click

    Click 'Restart'

    This appears not to be a permanent fix as I have discovered. However it works for a long time.

    I have just had to repeat this tonight having done so about a week ago.

    Make sure your peek button is unticked
    Also make sure your locked button is unticked as well
    Then it should auto hide ok

    Hide task bar not working FIXED!

    I was having trouble with the auto hide not working despite proper setting (Win 10).... i stumbled upon a fix. I was doing the setting with the right-click/properties approach. one afternoon i was doing something else and happen to be in "Settings"( through start menu/settings/personalization then... "show-hide task bar"switch. There seems to be something wrong with the right click shortcut option. but THIS worked! Yey!
