Taskbar will not auto hide RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see that this auto hide problem with the task bar is old.  It is no surprise that Microsoft has not fixed the problem.  I am using Windows 7 on a Compaq CQ61.  However, like Vista Windows 7 is one of the worst operating systems Microsoft has designed.  I wish they would reserect XP and make it work across all platforms.  I spend more time fixing my computer than actually using it.

    I  have tried running Windows Defender but this fix did nothing.  I could not find a way to move the taskbar behind running programs through the properties section.  So it appears that I or rather we are back to square one.  I am seriously thinking of changing my operating system to Linux at least there are plenty of free programs and lots of real support.

  • Answer - As mention in another post I found that an application needed attention in my Taskbars Hidden Icons. When I closed the application it brought my Task bar back to normal. I am sure I will have to take action on it in the next reboot at least now I know what is causing this annoying problem.

    I knew this had to be the problem as it started after a new program and driver was installed.

    I hope this helps others.

    Respects, Magoo
