Taskbar auto hide


E

Ed Cryer

We used to get lots of complaints on here about the taskbar failing to
withdraw, and covering essential parts of a window.
I haven't seen any for a while.
I found out recently that the primary cause of this is when some
dialogue window is open at the back; something like an autoplay menu.

Is that the explanation for them all? Or has someone got other, perhaps
unexplained, examples of it staying stuck?

From what I have seen, the #1 culprit is a new icon in the SysTray such as a
Windows Update notification.

Another of my pet peeves. I have Action Center set to "notification
only", but quite often the icon shows up, and then when I click on it
it tells me that there are no action items.

I didn't know that Action Center had a 'Notify only' option....only the
ability to toggle off security or maintenance items for Windows and Security
related features.

That makes sense. It is notifying you that there's nothing to notify you
about.

Note that I did *not* say that it makes *good* sense :)

It happens here too. On some level, it's too stupid to be annoying...

The notifications are the text balloons, and it's not popping up one
of those.

(Yes, I know you were making a joke.)

And that remark made me laugh ... :)
