How to fix the ‘Windows 10 taskbar not hiding in fullscreen’ issue?

Windows 10 is much more aesthetically pleasing than any of its predecessors. And while the taskbar generally adds to the aesthetic, a taskbar that gets stuck in full-screen mode can be annoying.

So, if your taskbar doesn’t disappear when you’re in full screen mode, here’s how to fix it.

As always, try rebooting the device to see if this resolves the issue. Rebooting is an easy way to solve many seemingly random problems.

Windows 10 has a feature that automatically hides the taskbar after a certain amount of time. Once the taskbar is hidden, it can only be made visible by moving the pointer in the direction of the taskbar.

Follow the steps below to use this setting.

Step one: Right-click on the taskbar and select Taskbar Settings.

Step two: Adjust the auto-hide bar settings according to your preferences.

When the application sends a notification, it is displayed on the application icon. Although this should not affect full-screen mode, since Windows automatically activates the focus wizard when you are in full-screen mode, it can sometimes cause the taskbar to thaw.

You can try reinstalling these applications or disabling notifications from these applications to resolve the issue.
