This did not fix the problem. Once run, it reported all was reset, but when rebooted, the taskbar auto-hide once or twice, then remained fixed as before.

OK so I had the same problem and I can't stand when the task bar is covering everything so I took this advice from another post which basically asks the question, "What program is running which could be forcing the taskbar to stay open - even after setting it to close?"

I shut down (exited) the "INTEL HD Graphics" program running in the task bar cluster. As soon as I shut that down the taskbar released and closed and now it seems to work perfectly. Good Luck.

I saw this advice elsewhere as well. When I tried it the first couple of times I still could not hide the taskbar. I closed all the apps in the notification center and it worked once. Then I noticed if I left clicked on any icon which appeared in the notification center area the taskbar went into hiding. After that, each time an icon appears and I left click on it the bar disappears.

I had this issue with the taskbar not auto hiding, i ran the cmd wind and command mentioned.

It fixed the taskbar about 90% of the time, every now and then the taskbar still gets stuck, logging out and into my account seems to fix it.

I've tried reseting the {autohide} to on and off a few times only to see it auto hide itself, then immediately pop back up and stick. ( had no effect )

Under win7pro i cant ever remember having an issue with autohide, it always worked as expected, win10... i'm guessing some of the scripting or code needs rewriting.

I also notice on the statusbar the task view & notification icons seem to be a little odd when interacting with the mouseover.

Hovering the mouse over and moving it slightly cause the text overlay to show & hide repeatedly so quickly it's hard to read.. i have to position my mouse just right on the icon for the text discription to show up and stay.

It seems there are a few timing issues with the new startmenu & live tiles & a couple icons.

Hot-Rod411 I have the same experience going on.  I am astounded how Microsoft continues to release products in which the most basic functions are ****.  If things like this do not work well how the hell do they think they are getting much of anything right?

I'm another user with a taskbar problem.  Auto hide works OK but............if the taskbar is placed at the bottom of the screen it will not reappear when the computer wakes from sleep mode until I open the task manager and restart Windows Explorer.  Then the taskbar will work properly until the computer goes into sleep mode again.

The problem does not appear if I keep the taskbar pinned to the left side of the screen but that is not where I like to keep it.  I have seen one other post from an individual with exactly the same situation.  It appears that Windows 10 with some hardware configurations has a problem with the taskbar.  I say, with some configurations, because I have a second computer running Windows 10 that does not have a taskbar problem.

I fixed all my win10 issues.

[live tiles not working]

[taskbar autohide]

[icon mouse over issue]

[some programs seem to be missing from startmenu after the upgrade]( i guess i could do a screen cap of the startmenu in win7 then after the upgrade i can compare to see exactly what or if anything is missing, but that's down the road now)

I restored my computer to win7, it's possible only if you upgraded and it's been less then a month since the upgrade. ( don't quote me )

I'll wait for a number of months and bug fix's to happen on win10 before i try the upgrade again or...

I'm thinking i mite do a dual boot setup and a clean install of win10 to see if the issues still happens. ( still thinking )

Well microsoft pulled the wool over my eyes and F***ed me over.

After restoring my computer from the win10 upgrade back to win7, now i'm getting a notice telling me my win7 is not activated and no longer supported for activation.

Looks like now i have to buy some version of windows just because i tried out win10 and it didn't work properly on my computer.

so i'm guessing if i turn off my computer, i wont be able to use it tomorrow.

Not a happy camper !
