  • I am not sure how, but I have lost the task bar on my desktop.  I have tried F11, Alt+F11, Alt +F4-- nothing is working to get it back.  I have right clicked and have been through all logical options.  Please help.  Thank you.

  • Hi Julie, 

    Please press Windows key + R, in the opened window, type following command to open Taskbar setting:

    control /name Microsoft.Taskbar

    Make sure to turn on Block taskbar, and other two settings are turned off:

    If all these fail to fix this issue, we can test another new user account, run this command to open computer management and  create new user account and sign out current one: 

    compmgmt.msc

  • Have you tried to press the Winkey it will popup the start menu which will also popup the taskbar as well.

  • move your mouse pointer to the top of the screen. The task bar should appear where you can select windowed once again.
