    Now, restarting the computer doesn't make the taskbar go away.

    Bob,

    Do you have it set to Auto Hide?

    Right-click on taskbar, hit properties and check autohide.

    I was trying to determine if he, already, had it on... seemed like he wasn't having expected behavior. Behavior that could only be expected IF Auto Hide was turned on.

    I just say "Hey Cortana, make my taskbar go away!" Then she says "Alright, making taskbar go away!"

    Yes, I have Auto Hide checked.

    I'm going to have to do a cold boot to make it go away. No matter where I move the taskbar, it interferes with seeing all of the screen.

    Cool. And sometimes just left click the desktop and it'll pop down, too. But, anyway, there you go, that's good news ��

    It's baaack. The task bar is still visible and blocking the bottom of my screen. This Windows 10 is becoming a bigger headache than it's worth.

    If you don't like win 10 and you are within the 30 day period, just roll it back to the previous OS.

    Are you using an Insider Build or the GA?

    Win 10 Task Bar will not hide

    Bob - I struggled with this problem and finally found a fix. The PROBLEM is that there is some program running that is posting a "Notification", that isn't visible and the Task Bar won't Hide until the Notification is acknowledged.

    The HASSLE is that you can't easily figure out which program is triggering an unseen Notification. I believe in my case it was Skype.

    The SOLUTION is to change the action of most programs to NOT display a Notification. If necessary, use Task Manager (available in the list with Windows+X).

    Once I went through that process, I've had no further problems.

    Since you're able to do a cold boot without the problem occurring, you may be able to determine which Application is causing the problem just by keeping track of which program you start.

    Okay, I'm willing to try that, but I don't know where to go to turn off the notification. I didn't see anything on Task Manager. Where should I be looking? Please be detailed

    I just noticed the Notification Icon, a dialogue box on the extreme right edge of the Task Bar. I clicked on that, and I had a down load that I needed to do. I did that download, and now, since there no more notifications, the Task Bar has hidden. I think that dialogue box, like you see in comics, is the key to the problems of the Task Bar not going away.
