Windows 10: Taskbar not coming up on mouse over (set to auto-hide)

    Taskbar not coming up on mouse over (set to auto-hide)

    My Task Bar is supposed to come up when I move the cursor close enough to the bottom edge of the screen but it isn't doing that. How do I resolve this? Google search results are littered with irrelevant rubbish.

    Hi THX1138.

    This suggestion may already be part of the litter you read. I would disable auto-hide. Then I would restart. If you power down I would hold shift key down.

    On restart I would go back to Auto-hide and see if the situation has cleared.

    Next to see if this is Windows or your user account I would create new user and see if issue persists.

    Failing that you could try an in place repair / upgrade. No guarantees that this will work, especially if this is a user profile issue. This will take you to the Creator's update, just so you know.

    Read the warnings in tutorial.
