How do I fix my taskbar on Windows 10?
Fortunately, Windows 10 has a built-in way of resolving this.
- Launch Task manager. Press the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] keys on your keyboard at the same time - alternatively, right click the Taskbar.
- Run a new Windows task.
- Run Windows PowerShell.
- Run the System File Checker.
Right-Click on the taskbar and select Properties. Toggle the 'Auto-Hide the taskbar' checkbox and click Apply. If it is now checked, move the cursor to the bottom, right, left, or top of the screen and the taskbar should re-appear. Repeat step three to return to your original setting.
- You can use one of these to leave Full Screen mode:
- press the F11 key.
- click the Maximize button at the right end of the Tab bar.
- click the Full Screen button in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down list.
- right-click empty space on a toolbar and click "Exit Full Screen Mode"
- Method 2 Windows 8, 7, and Vista
- Right-click the taskbar and select "Properties." If you're using Windows 8, select "Desktop" from the Start menu or press ⊞ Win + D first to open the desktop view.
- Check the "Auto-hide the taskbar" box.
- Click "Apply."
- Reveal the taskbar with your mouse cursor.
- The first method hinges around restarting Windows Explorer. First, open up the Task Manager using CTRL + SHIFT + ESC and head to the Processes tab. Select the app labelled Windows Explorer and click Restart. However, it may well be that there is a simpler solution to your auto-hide woes.
