    Taskbar at bottom has gone black with no icons

    Yesterday Windows 10 updates were installed over night. Today, the task bar at the bottom of the screen is completely black. In the lower left corner is the windows icon, but it does not respond to any mouse clicks, right or left. At the lower right corner the clock and time are not visible, but if the mouse is positioned over their area then a small popup windows gives the date and time. The taskbar is not auto-hide, and it has now been unlocked.
    Anybody have any suggestions?

    Reboot perhaps?

    If it doesn't cure itself, I'd simply try a repair install. See "How to Do a Repair Install of Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade".

    Short of that, you might find a solution online, see if this link helps.

    Duh! ...guess I need to familiarize myself with tablet mode.
    Oh, well. Some day you get the bear, some days the bear gets you.

    Thanks, Bruce.
