Windows 10: Taskbar will not hide if any app is in fullscreen mode Solved

    Taskbar will not hide if any app is in fullscreen mode


    All of a sudden, now when I put any app in fullscreen, the taskbar remains in place.

    I have to set the host taskbar to autohide to see the fullscreen.

    It is really annoying in a hyper-v session as it hides the vm taskbar unless I autohide host taskbar

    This just started recently - any ideas guys?

    edit: found solution - I had to kill windows explorer.exe service from task manager and reboot. Problem sorted!

    I solved this in 2 steps:

    1. Open TaskManager (right click on taskbar or CTRL_ALT+DELETE)
    2. In processes, locate and Right-click on Windows Explorer , than click on Restart.

    Much easier than killing it and then restarting your pc! Just simply restart it and it should work!
