Windows 10: Taskbar won't show when I mouse to bottom of screen Solved

    Taskbar won't show when I mouse to bottom of screen


    This started after I installed the Creator update two days ago. It was working fine before.

    I want the taskbar to show when I mouse down to the bottom of the screen. Since the update it will only show when there are no other windows open and disappear when I move the mouse away. So if I open a browser window then go to the bottom of the screen to maybe start another app the taskbar doesn't show and I cannot then access my apps.

    I don't know if this has been raised before as I cannot find anything on a search but I would like to get the taskbar 'hiding and showing' when I mouse on the bottom of the screen.

    Any suggestions please?

    @bertie11, apparently you are not alone in this. There was another thread earlier today (and some suggestions).
    Strange behavior from taskbar-cursor interaction?
    Can't tell if they work, I don't seem to have this problem.

    Yeah, Bertie, we apparently are in the same boat...No solution, yet. Best i can do at the present moment is to have the taskbar always showing

    Thanks for the link Bree, I was expecting/assuming that would be a lot more 'sufferers' but it seems not!
