Task bar not hiding


Honorable Member
It happened to me, on a small screen, the task bar suddenly refused to hide.

But apps like Edge assume the task bar is hiding, so on full-screen use of apps, the taskbar hides some of the window you are working in.

I found a solution. There was an unread message in one of the hidden icons: "Java update available" - just click on it and the taskbar is back to normal. Weird. Most times you are unaware of these messages.....
