    Windows 10 Taskbar Popping Up on Full Screen Video


    When I am watching videos on Netflix/YouTube/etc. the taskbar will intermittently pop up at the bottom of the screen.
    Currently the issue does not correlate with any error or warning I can find with Event Viewer. It had originally seemed to correlate with error 10016.


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry Posted old method a moment ago.
    New method....Type taskbar in Cortana box, click on Taskbar Settings, choose turn off taskbar. see attachment.

    The taskbar hides and only appears when you point mouse at bottom of screen.

    Thanks for the reply but I like the taskbar normally, I just want it to leave me alone when I'm watching videos.

    It will pop up if a mouse move triggers it.

    I've recently experienced this. What I did was:
    - Task Manager > Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) > Restart it. Wait for it to fully restart with all your pinned apps, then try.
    - Uninstalled "AeroGlass". I don't know if you have this installed, but good luck!

    Hope it works out for you, it's really annoying I know.

    That would only be if the OP installed that theme pack like you did.

    yeah, that's why i doubt he'll have it, the first method should work though

    Have had the same issue, didn't find any errors related to the timing of the popup. Then I just tried another browser other than chrome and the taskbar did not popup. Hopefully google fixes the issue.

    How would a mouse trigger the taskbar? Sometimes if I bump the mouse the status bar for the video will come up but I've never noticed the Windows taskbar popping up as a result of anything I do with the mouse.
