    Auto Hide on Taskbar keeps turning itself on...


    I do not want to hide my task bar. All I can find are issues about it not hiding. I go into the task bar properties and turn off Auto Hide, but after a while it is back on again.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello 56Kruiser, :)

    Do you have any 3rd party tweaking programs installed that may be overriding and changing this back?

    For now, you might see if changing the setting manually in the registry using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below may have it stick for you.

    Hi Brink

    I appreciate your suggestion and time. I finally sat down long enough to give this a try.

    I don't have any tweaking software (that I'm aware of) installed. I tried the option 2 as suggested, and upon reboot it did not help. Interestingly, I checked the registry, and it is still set to 03 (It was 02), but the taskbar was still hiding.

    But, I again manually changed it on properties for the task bar, put it to sleep, woke it back up...and it is working. If that changes I will post back.

    I really appreciate the help.

    Well, today when I woke the computer, the registry setting was back to 02, and the task bar was hidden.

    Are you using tablet mode by chance?

    Just checked to be sure...no, it's not in tablelt mode. JFYI...I am experiencing this on an ASUS laptop, non-touch display.

    I must admit that I'm not sure why auto-hide keeps getting turned back on. Does turning it off again still work?

    Yes, turn off still works.

    Is pretty strange.

    ...strange for sure. Just did another reboot, and auto hide is off. I have no confidence it will stay off. I'll keep the thread updated.

    I'm going to scrutinize the startup programs and see if I can find anything strange there.

    It'll be interesting to find out what is causing it to do that.
