Windows 10: Auto-Hide doesn't hide taskbar

    Auto-Hide doesn't hide taskbar


    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.

    Any ideas?

    This behaviour has been happening for a long time now. I don't think MS are giving it much priority at the moment. The search on & off method seems to be the main workaround everyone is using.

    Someone had a solution that worked for me a year ago and it involved Cortana but included a step I don't remember. I do remember thinking, "Boy, I'd never have thought of that."

    I'm just hoping someone either remembers it or has thought of it.
    Thanks.
