    Win10 taskbar


    I hope this is just a setting, but I have a very lazy taskbar (bottom) that will not become visible unless I keep moving the mouse up and down or sometimes sideways to get it to appear. Lock is not on, auto-hide is checked when this happens. Is this a 9879 problem? Till I figure it out, I have the task bar locked (visible) Tx

    Hello meebers,

    You could uncheck the auto-hide option, and click on OK to have the taskbar stay showing.

    Tx Brink, I like to move the mouse down, have the TB come up and make my selection, then have it hide away. But is that normal behavior for the task bar to be "lazy". Annoying waiting for it to respond. :-(.

    It sounds like the "fade" visual effects settings causing this delay. Most likely the "Fade or slide menus into view" effect. As a test, turn them off (uncheck) to see if that helps.

    I unchecked them all and now the TB is "instant", meaning it seems like it jumps up immediately. I will go back and slowly add the visual effects back in and see if any one in particular causes/caused this problem. Tx Brink...
