Taskbar disappears when any program or window is running

Product Name: Pavilion 15-au109ne
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The taskbar is present when I'm on the desktop screen but just disappears when I shift to using a window or a program, so to access the taskbar i have to minimise all the open windows and go back to the desktop screen for the taskbar to appear.

OK..

 

When I have the Taskbar set to "disappear", it does reappear when I drag my mouse to it.

 

So:

 

Perhaps setting it to "not disappear" and then setting it back to the way you like, will jog it.

Set the Taskbar to "not disappear" when it is not in use:

 

Right-Click on the Taskbar > Settings  Settings_Wheel_2.JPG

 

OR

 

Windows key > Settings Settings_Wheel_2.JPG> Personalization

 

Next:

 

Set to Off :

Lock the Taskbar  Set_Off_icon_1.JPG

Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode  Set_Off_icon_1.JPG

Automatically hide the taskbar in tablet mode  Set_Off_icon_1.JPG

 

 

If you like, relock the Taskbar
