Preferred Solution: Taskbar shows when watching Fullscreen in Edge

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi.

When I watch fullscreen video in any application (VLC, WMP, Mediaplayer Classic), the taskbar appears at the bottom of the screen at random times. In other words, it seems like something is taking focus away from the video. I tried Googling this, but could not find any way to solve it.

Hi,

Today i started having a weird issue with fullscreen on Youtube.

I have Youtube on my left monitor and twitter on my right monitor.

I either get:

1. It doesn't go fullscreen at all and has the topbar and taskbar are showing (The red bit is my bookmarks which I have covered up).

2. It does go fullscreen but as soon as I click on my other monitor the taskbar shows.

Any help?

For like an half a year I have been getting blue screens, sometimes randomly when watching Youtube videoTEEMU-PC-ti_13_12_2016_16_10_51,32.zips, sometimes exiting fullscreen and immediately doing something else, like going into another tab etc.

I have tried to fix it by searching for the error THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER, but with not much success. Some times after uninstalling old driver with DDU, and installing a different one, it has worked for fine for a day to half a week, but then same thing happens again. I have tried latest beta drivers, stable drivers, older drivers, nothing works.

With WhoCrashed, I saw dxgkrnl.sys was causing it, now I uninstalled the drivers and windows automatically installed some other ones, so i could get my other screen working. I was afk, and when I came back it was in the lock screen so it had gotten a blue screen while idling.

It would be so helpful to get a fix to this, because it is really frustrating getting blue screens while watching YouTube in the morning, when I only have like a half an hour of time.

Answer:BSOD watching YouTube fullscreen/exiting fullscreen

Can you run DM_Log_collector again and upload that zip file please. The msinfo32.nfo file is corrupt and I need to look at it to see what video card you have as it is not showing up in the dxdiag.txt file.

The last couple dumps show a problem with atikmdag.sys

I'm guessing this is for your Asus Strix R9 390 DCIII which is based on a ATI/AMD Radeon technology. Can you look for a newer driver for it? I can't find any.

Had difficulties to find a descriptive title for this.

A screenshot:


Screenshot above shows approximately this area of my displays #1 & #3:


Edge is full screen. Any content that other browsers would show in status bar which Edge doesn't have, like URL when I mouse over a link, is shown on display #3 when Edge is full screen on display #1. It is very disturbing.

Happens on both build 15002 and 15007.

Any ideas, how do I stop this?

Answer:Edge fullscreen - Mouse Over a link shows link URL on another display*

The screens are overlapping? Those screen numbers on the display settings are draggable. Drag the screens so that they don't overlap.

Hi all,

When I go to watch a non-widescreen DVD and have my DVD program in fullscreen mode I get black bars down the sides of the screen that are obviously keeping the fullscreen video in 4:3 aspect ratio. Thing is, I have my video card configged to display in full screen. (Catalyst Control Center --> Notebook Panel Properties --> Scaling Options --> Full Screen)....

I don't know if it has to do with the fact that I don't have Dell Media Experience installed on my PC, because as of current I don't have the install disks for that program.... I installed a DVD player off of sourceforge.net which provides me with the decoder, and I use RealPlayer to watch the DVD... If I reinstall Dell Media Experience will that fix the problem, or is there any way to force full screen?

Specs:

Dell Inspiron 6400 Laptop
ATI Radeon Mobility X1300, 256 MB Memory

If you need any other specs, let me know.

Thanks for the help,

-'Mage
 

Answer:Black bars when watching fullscreen DVD

You need a DVD player, the DELLs laptop usually come with WinDVD or something like that. Don't you have that installed? Or use Windows Media Player 10. I rather use Windows Media Classic you get that off http://www.free-codecs.com/ and it has a lot of free stuff, free... You should contact tell DELL if that laptop is still under protection. Get free access to update your machine you might still be able too?

Hello,

My Dell inspiron e1505 laptop crashes and shows a black screen whenever I watch a video online on fullscreen for a few minutes. It is still running but stops responding completely and I have to force shutdown and restart and redo what I was doing. This problem also happens when I am talking on skype with videos on and also when I am on a website that has lots of animation or requires constant use of adobe flash player. I am guessing this to be a graphic card problem inside the laptop but I am not sure.


Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!!!
Thank you.

I have my laptop connected to a Samsung TV which I use as my second monitor, the BSOD didn't happen at the start, but it started when I try to unplug the HDMI cable from my computer I get the BSOD.

It doesn't happen all the time just randomly. . . so I thought the problem could be with my HDMI or the Port. . . but as time passed, the BSOD also occurred when I am switching to/from fullscreen when I play games like, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, Dota 2 or League of Legends. . . it also happens when I am watching movies when I try to switch to/from Normal Window to fullscreen even if the Samsung TV is not connected through HDMI.

Please help.

Hello parzon.

A search revealed that you are using nForce as the chipset driver, and that includes nvmf6264.sys as the network controller driver. You need to try to update nForce, as it contains not only the network controller, but also storage controller and a lot of other vital drivers.

Okay so I'm pretty noob at this stuff I feel but this is the rundown of issues plus what i have done so far and the things i have to present my case to you.
I am mainly affected by MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD, I have been interrupted by PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA BSOD as well but only once or twice. The memory management ones seem to happen very frequently and when I play certain games more than others. I will say for what its worth (which may be nothing) that League of Legends the game I play most frequently (hundreds upon hundreds of hours) has NEVER ONCE bsod'd on me or inexplicably CTD while some of the games that BSOD (after even just an hour) will also CTD. So wanting to solve this issue Ive used CCleaner, Defragmented my computer, used memtest86 to make sure my RAM is stable and it is. The next thing i figured to do is run sfc.exe which in fact found corrupted files in my system32 that it was unable to repair because the parent file was also corrupted. I have NO IDEA how to fix these .MUI and .DLL files in the system 32 and I am attaching my CBS log with the logs that the sevenforum program made up so you can see as well. So my main question first would be do these corrupted files affect the BSOD I am getting and even if not how do I fix them. And secondly how to fix the BSOD themselves if those corrupted files are not the issue. Please ask me for any other information you might need, I have never posted for help on a cpu forum and may need some direction on how to find c... Read more

Short story: I am having this problem, but none of the proposed solutions work for me.

I am not sure if this is new, or I am just now noticing it, but it seems I can't get rid of the title of the youtube video and the share/watch later icons, even when in fullscreen. I seem to remember the title and buttons would go away after 15 second of watching the video. I tried both Chrome Version 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit) and MSIE 11. I also tried going full screen by double-clicking the video and using the "Fullscreen" button. I also tried the method of using the fullscreen button, then double clicking for non-full screen and then double clicking again for full screen. Finally, I tried disabling Adblock and made sure annotations were disabled.

Is this just how Youtube/Google is doing fullscreen HTML5 now? If so, I don't like it. :-( It blocks scores and important parts of the streamer's UI. Any have a solution or even workaround?

Answer:Youtube shows title in fullscreen

I don't have any of that in full screen in FF, no idea what the cause is for you.

Not sure if I need to put the thread here or in software but as of recently whenever I go to fullscreen mode for a video or game, no matter which application the task bar for windows still shows. I never had auto hide on before and until recently never was an issue. This is a short list of apps that this happens in:
Google Chrome version 55 (youtube, netflix, crunchyroll)
Firefox version 50 (youtube, netflix, crunchyroll)
VLC Media Player version 2.2.2 (locally stored content)
numerous games from Steam with the exception of a couple.
As far as I know there were no windows updates and no additional programs downloaded since it last worked as I wanted it to. As stated above I never enabled auto hide as I know this would solve the issue but I find that more troublesome than this bar. I have windows 10 anniversary update. If more information would help fix this issue I would be happy to assist.

Hi,

I have about 4 chrome browser windows open with tabs in each of them and whenever I fullscreen a tab from any one of the windows, that chrome window with the tab that was maximized goes right into the last position of the 4 windows open.
For example, if I have chrome windows in this order:
[a, b, c, d]
If I fullscreen a tab in window 'a' and exit full screen, then the window order changes to:
[b, c, d, a]
I don't even have to play the youtube video; I just fullscreen it and exit fullscreen immediately and that window will go to the end of the order. Just for clarification, these aren't the tabs in the chrome windows, but the chrome windows themselves that are being repositioned, not the tabs.
I want to know if there was a way to keep my browser order so that I don't have to full screen every window until I get my order back to the way it was. I know this isn't a life altering issue, but it is really annoying for me because I have the windows in a certain order for my convenience. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

I have been facing an issue where the taskbar is still visible when launching a full screen application, such as game, a video player or even some applications like Remote Desktop Connection. The only way to solve this is restarting Windows Explorer process through Task Manager, which becomes extremely annoying after a while as this happens very often. IIRC, this has been happening since Fall Creator's Update, and after laptop wakes up from hibernation.

My other laptop and desktop, also running same version of Windows 10, do not suffer from this issue, even when turned on after hibernation. I have recently refreshed Windows 10 in this laptop, in order to attempt to solve another unrelated issue, but the taskbar not auto-hiding issue persists. Thanks in advance.

Howdy,

When I hover over an item on the taskbar, it gives me the little thumbnail preview of the program. This I'm OK with. However, when I then put my mouse on the thumbnail, it hides all the open programs and shows me that program as it would be if I clicked on it to bring it to the front. This is what I don't want.

Is there any way to turn that feature off? I don't know what it's called so am having trouble searching for a way to do this.

Thanks!

Answer:How can I disable the fullscreen preview when I hover over a taskbar

It always brings the program/app to the front when you click the thumbnail. If it's full screen, then that's the last state that you left it in. Just reduce the window size before you minimize to taskbar or use the 'task view' icon to view all open programs and just pick the one you want.

Wow, my last post here was way back in 2009. I had to sit here for half an hour trying to remember my old password. I may end up using this site a little more often now that I've got friends offering me gas money to fix their PCs. This problem however, is one of my own that's been bothersome lately that I try to just ignore but I've finally gotten fed up enough to try to fix it.

The problem I'm having has to do with my taskbar staying hidden after leaving a fullscreen video, no matter the source. I've had it do this from VLC, WMP, and any player on Firefox and Chrome. As long as I don't enter fullscreen, the taskbar works correctly - displaying when the mouse hovers over it. After leaving fullscreen the taskbar then begins ignoring the mouse and the only fix so far has been using Ctrl+Esc to force the start menu to open and for some reason, the taskbar is reset and works again. The other way is to minimize whatever program I have up, click on the desktop to switch the focus and the taskbar returns to normal. While this does work everytime, I do find it rather frustrating and I would like to fix it. Any tips on where to begin looking for the problem would be much appreciated, thanks!

Hello,
Firslty, please don't mug me off too badly for asking what is probably a very schoolboy question but I don't know that much about this sort of thing.

Mrs Nellington want's to watch some TV programmes that are being shown in the US but have not yet been released in the UK. I have found some websites that stream them but they all come up with an error message that says that they cannot be watched outside of the US. I have tried a few places to download them too but even places like Itunes will only sell episodes that have already been shown on UK networks.

Someone mentioned that you can trick websites into thinking that you are actually in the US rather than the UK and thus will let you to stream these programs.

Questions:
1) Is this true?
2) How do I do it!!!!!!!!
 

Answer:Watching US Shows in the UK

Personally I've never tried it, but I've seen other guys do it.
search google for an ip address changer, try and find one that let's you select your desired country, and I guess you'll want a free one too.

You may be limited by your ISP though, I'm not Sure they allow you to Change your ip address

Hi,
I live in Canada and have attempted to watch old tv show episodes on the internet.
I went to ABC.com and it states only U.S. viewers can watch episodes. On Itunes U.S.A. you can buy episodes but again you must live in the united states. If I go to Itunes Canada there is no option for downloading tv shows.
Does anyone know how to access these shows living in Canada and not the United States?

When running a multi monitor setup, with the main application (game or program) on the main monitor in fullscreen borderless, in windows 7 you could simply drag your mouse to the other monitor, and click any window or app on your 2nd monitor and the taskbar would pop up like so:
http://puu.sh/lFis0/198904b7ba.jpg

However, this is not possible in Windows 10 no matter what I do. After researching for a few hours and even calling a rather useless "Microsoft support" encouraging me to ask on the forum, I now put my last hope in whoever is here.

When you go from your main monitor to your second monitor (clicking it) this is what you get:
http://puu.sh/lFivG/b69c98abbb.jpg

Meaning you have to use hotkeys or such to get the taskbar to appear. Now when you jump between a ton of windows all the time, this thing that might seem minor, becomes a major hurdle.

Note: It works as it's supposed to when you click on the desktop on the 2nd monitor. Just not any window/program.

Anyone know how to fix this if at all possible? Or am I reverting back to Windows 7? (Please don't suggest things like Alt + Tab etc, I'm not new at windows.)

Best regards,

I have two problems to this program.
I need a solution to make sure that these problems will not appear again.
1.My first problem is that when I click on the program other than Chrome, the other application never seem to switch or restore when the program is already opened.
I'll just put in a scenario. Google Chrome may work fine normally, until the time when I want to switch other programs when needed. Changing other programs in the taskbar doesn't respond at all. Clicking the icon twice, right click the icon then restore the window, or even using alt+tab doesn't switch.
Switching back to desktop seems to work, even changing other Google Chrome tabs by drag and make a different window. The exception is this window here.
2.My second problem is the taskbar showing up when I watch videos on fullscreen
Normally, it doesn't appear at all, but you know the what the problem is all about so I won't explain it in detail.
When will it appear?
These problems will only appear occasionally. But I do know is that there is a higher chance to happen if I turn my laptop to sleep mode and turn back on. I use a laptop.
What can you really do if you want to give a solution to my problem?
You can ask me to download a different version of Google Chrome, but make sure that the version you give me is stable (I used Version 53.0.2785.89 m (64-bit)).

Tried to make a somewhat descriptive title...

I just upgraded from 7 to 8.1 and finding there are some minor differences I have to learn/fix to behave how I want. My issue is this: when I'm playing WoW in windowed fullscreen on my primary monitor I typically have VLC, Chrome, and Skype (the desktop version, not the app) open in my second monitor.

Occasionally I'll click out of the game onto the second monitor to respond to some skype messages (skype typically falls behind chrome, or VLC). Rather than Alt-Tab, I simply would click on my second monitor (either on VLC player or Chrome open on Facebook for example), and the taskbar would show up on my main monitor (since the focus is no longer on the full screen game). I have my taskbar auto-hide, however if a skype message was available it would pop up orange as you can imagine.

In Windows 8.1 I'm finding that if I click on VLC (maximized or just regular size window) on the second monitor, the taskbar doesn't show up on my main monitor...however when i click into Chrome on that second monitor, the taskbar will show up.

Anyone know why this might be happening? In Windows 7, it would pop up regardless of what program I would click into.

Let me know if additional information is required.

Thanks!!!

Please help. I have seen multiple post about taskbar problems but all seem to be directed a different way, there problem is getting autohide to work. This is not my problem. my problem is i just did a fresh instal (which i have done recently without a problem). now after finishing this last install and i set all my games programs up and everything i decide, hey time to play a game. open set game and the task bar is at the bottom of the screen when i start the game. the game is in fullscreen in all settings. tried alt tab, alt enter, f11, all have been tried, some games will act correctly so not exactly sure what the problem is, minecraft, special ops the line, any web browser, all these still do the same in fullscreen with task bar still showing. and i know for a fact directly before reinstalling (exactly the way i have multiple times before on same machine with same reinstall cd from alienware dell that came with computer) have tried all the common fixes i have seen around the internet in regards to other taskbar problems to try to straiten mine out but not fix yet. closed and reopened explorer.exe i can auto hide it fine, but even if i autohide it and the picture from the game covers the whole screen i can still see the window and minimize and close buttons on top and border. so it's still in windowed mode and not full screen.... pulling my hair out over this any help is greatly appreciated.

Evening all,

As of just recently I had to install a fresh windows 10 OS on my alienware aurora R4 due to freezing issues. I had to install windows 8.1 provided with the pc when it was purchaed then upgrade to windows 10 because I couldn't get windows 10 onto a USB for a fresh install without safe mode.

Anyway onto my issue. Everything has behaving as intended so far except a few things which I've noticed. I'm running a dual monitor setup at the moment where the specifications can be found below.

Monitor 1 - Benq RL2755HM
Monitor 2 - Acer P193W

The issue I'm now having is when playing world of warcraft in windowed (fullscreen) display mode whenever I alt+tab the taskbar on the first monitor isn't appearing unless there's another program running on it, Where as prior to the fresh OS install everytime I alt tabbed I could see the taskbar. I've spent hours googling and trying to diagnose this issue but can't seem to find the problem.

If there are no programs open on the first monitor behind the game the taskbar won't appear. Even when I used to click off the screen onto the second monitor the taskbar would appear and now it's not.

I've been through multitasking settings and taskbar settings, None of which have any options to fix my issue.

Since the fresh OS install I've also noticed there's now another clock on my second monitor on the taskbar where as prior to the OS install there wasn't. The clock I don't care about but maybe there's some relation to it?

My monitor makes crackling sounds, and the picture skips, jerks, snaps, etc. when I try to watch on-demand shows/movies in Vista Home Basic on my R500.  A couple of the websites I've tried to use and had problems with are netlix.com and fox.com.  This does not happen if the video playing is not running full screen; the crackling starts only when I go full screen.  This never used to be a problem until about a month ago.  My laptop is about 11 months old.  As far as specs go, other than a battery upgrade, my R500 is as basic as they come. The interesting thing is, this doesn't happen with anything I watch online in Ubuntu (I dual-boot with Vista and Ubuntu 9.10).  Also interesting is that the only sites where this is a problem are the same only sites I ever boot Vista to view -- I prefer Ubuntu and only switch over to Vista for the specific reason that some video doesn't support linux and forces me to use Windows.  (grr...) Is there a problem with video in Vista?  Do I not have enough RAM for Vista?  (I have 1GB, oodles for Ubuntu)  Is this a hardware problem?  Is this a problem for Microsoft-and-Apple-only video and doesn't affect linux? Thoughts?  Help!  I don't want to give up movies online!

Answer:R500 monitor crackles when watching online movies/shows

Hi shirt1980,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo forum!
 
Interesting problem you're having with videos. Upgrading to 2GB couldn't hurt anything but your pocketbook, and is well worth trying. I think the fact that video works fine in Ubuntu tends to indicate that it's a software, not a hardware, problem. You could burn and boot the PC Doctor CD (avail from Lenovo Service website) and run all the tests -- if they pass, you can be pretty sure that your hardware is alright.
 
My guess is that since you originally installed Vista, more software (updates to video players if nothing else) has installed itself and is using more RAM than when your ThinkPad was new. Installing iTunes these days installs and runs like 4 services.
 
A neat utility to manage what gets started is Mark Russinovich's Autoruns.
 
Good luck!
-Frank
 
P.S. It would help if you'd post your ThinkPad's model type number, 7 digits XXXX-YYY from the label on bottom.

Hi all
I noticed the problem when i watch flashplayer movies in Edge or use the desktop-app/Win10-Store-App Netflix.
Flashplayer movies on Firefox works everything fine - as expected.

But in Edge or Netflix when i move the mouse to the bottom of the screen the taskbar appears and when i move the mouse in to the upper right corner then the close,minimize,maximize "bar" appears.

My taskbar is not autohidden and i want it to stay it that way. But in fullscreen mode there shouldn't pop up the taskbar anyway, unless i exit the fullscreen mode - like it works in Firefox and like it worked for every application on Win7.

I read a lot about taskbar popping up and even staying always on and i know i had it also once in Firefox. But i think it has something with the new Win10 design to do. And i think this taskbar issue is connected like the issue with the close,minimize,maximize-bar.
Is there some registry key that i can change or a hidden setting?
I will never use the tablet mode or anything like that.
I've 3 computers and it's on all the same.

Thanks for any hint.

Norton 360 shows up twice in my Windows taskbar as Windows loads. It has been happening for several weeks now. I have done so many scans up to this point and nothing seems to fix it. I've ran MBAM, Norton, Avast free scans, Mini Tool. Right now i'm also getting an error in iTunes that says, "The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing another burning software. Please reinstall iTunes" I've had that message before, and have gone to Apple support. They helped me fix it. But my web mail shows up as doubles randomly too, both on my phone and online. Haven't been able to fix that. Just got a totally new phone, and it's still happening. Also, my cursor flickers a lot as if there is constant background activities. I hope someone can help with this. Thanks so much.

Things in this world is full of surprises...

1st thing .. Check if there any spyware or virus
2nd thing .. try do a System Repair...
3rd thing .. backup your important file before repair.. just in case anythings goes wrong.

2 choices you have : 1st choice : (Start Button -- > RUN -- > type in "SFC") this will try search and fix some corrupted files.
2nd choice : Insert your WindowXP CD do a repair.Try boot from the CD. *Notice: On the 1st message come out mentioning Repair.. just skip this part, by pressing ESC, then F8 for agreement, then it will prompt out founded previous Windows, Now you press "R" for repair. No need worry bout all the program you have installed, it will be there, window will just do a repair like upgrading.

Good Luck...

Hey guys,
I wasn't too sure where to post this however, I have two monitors and on my smallest monitor it's perfect,
however on my main monitor (32") when I watch YouTube videos in full screen it shows the taskbar at all times,
I don't know the cause, does anyone have any ideas.

Thanks

Answer:Taskbar shows on YouTube videos.

Hey,

This could be due to some application running in the background and not letting you see the fullscreen video. You can check that and uninstall/turn off that application.

Here's how to find out what application is causing the problem:
1. Do a search in the Start Menu searchbar for EVENTVWR and open the exe file.
2. In the middle, there should be a section called "Summary of Administrative Events". Click the + box in front of Errors.
3. There should be a large amount of errors reported in the last 24 hours under Application Errors. Double click the Application Errors name
4. Click on any of the Errors and in the grey description it should give a Faulting application name. That is your culprit application. You can either uninstall that application or I'm sure there is a way to turn the problem reporting off if you feel the application is important or is not actually causing errors.

I tried right clicking on the file and shortcut but it only says Unpin from Start, and also tried dragging and dropping, but just shows a error symbol on my mouse and takes file back to its position on the desktop. It just randomly disappeared from my taskbar and was left on my desktop one day when I was logging in, and I can't get it back on the taskbar.

A small question. When I installed W7, the icons on the task bar displayed a small image of the program when I did a mouse-over. Now the have a text line giving info. Can't find how to change back. Didn't try to change in the first place. Thanks, Don

Answer:mouse-over icon on taskbar shows text

Hello Djangelico, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you using an Aero theme?

If you are, then double check these items: You must be have True Color (32 bit) set instead of High Color (16 bit).
The desktop composition and Animate controls and elements inside windows options need to be enabled in Visual Effects.
The Desktop Window Manager Session Manager and Themes Services need to be set as Started and Automatic.
Refresh or update your WEI score. You will need an WEI score minimum of 2.0 in both Graphics & Gaming graphics in order for Aero to be activated.
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Can members advise if when running MWB latest version they get a MWB icon in the Taskbar AND the System Tray on bootup. It did not do this in previous versions and the taskbar icon is totally superfluous as there is nothing in its menu that is not already in the System Tray menu. I always ran MWB as a background process so it never appearerd in the Taskbar but can't get rid of it automatically on boot as there seems to be no way to do it. MWB support don't appear to have any ideas either as I have been consulting them for 4 days now.

Answer:Malwarebytes shows con in Taskbar and System Tray

Basically I think it is a bit of disk hog.when it runs or updates it always shows the hard drive running at 100% in Task manager,
I disabled it in services and start up and just run it manually when I want and not when it wants.
Click on the little triangle on the Taskbar and click on customise.Make sure hide icon and notifications is showing on the dropdown box. That should stop it showing on the Taskbar.
Click on show hidden icons and if MWB shows right click it and remove it. Just did it with mine. Unfortunately I have to do that after every time that i run it which is not that often. I also have MWB not to run at start up.
I have another Anti-Malware program on my computer which is better than MWB so only use MWB if If I think it is needed.

I'm running Windows 10 and have been since it was first released. This morning I was playing a game, and my sound stopped working, so I rebooted my computer to see if that would fix it. It fixed the problem, but I had no icons pinned on my taskbar, no time & date, and the search and start button would not work. After hard-booting the computer for a second time, there was still nothing. When I open a program the icon doesn't show on the taskbar. Help please??

Answer:Nothing shows on Taskbar, can't use search or start button.

Assuming RIGHT click at the Start button still working ..............

Right click at it > click Command Prompt (Admin) > type powershell > press Enter key.
At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this command line ( to avoid typo it's best to apply Copy/paste method)......

When I press ctrl-alt-delete and click on the task manager option it shows it in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen however when I click on it nothing will open or display. I read this may be due to malware or some sort of virus so here is my Hijackthis log, I would really appreciate some help. Thanks for your time.

I am using a PowerShell script to add and remove icons to taskbar - users can run it. Basically it uses the PS verbs to pin or unpin. Works fine but I can't get rid of Edge.
$shell = New-Object -ComObject Shell.Application 


#Unpin Microsoft Edge
$folder = $shell.NameSpace((Join-Path ${env:Windir} 'SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe'))
$item = $folder.parsename('MicrosoftEdge.exe')
$verb = $item.Verbs() | ? {$_.Name -eq 'Unpin from tas&kbar'}
if ($verb) {$verb.DoIt()}
Looking at articles it states the file location of Microsoftedge.exe to be as above but if you run the script above manually there is no verb to unpin so I'm pretty sure the icon is NOT from that exe. Moreover that icon has a white background. By hand you
can do an unpin from Taskbar so where is this icon located ???. I realise the icons are created with the profile, but that's the whole point of running it as the user so they can pin/unpin as needed via the script

Hello Matthew, and welcome to Ten Forums.

You could do so by unpinning Microsoft Edge from the taskbar and Start menu, and setting whatever web browser you wanted to use instead as the default program instead.

https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5...dows-10-a.html



I have already chosen chrome to be my default browser and when I double click on an html file, it opens in chrome as I expect. However I still can't unpin Microsoft Edge from the taskbar as you suggest. When I right click on the edge icon in the taskbar this is what I see:

This is seriously messed up, since it is giving me a choice to pin Microsoft Edge to the taskbar. Why would it give me such a choice when it is already pinned to the taskbar @#$&!!

(By the way, the four icons to the left of my system tray were added by using the quicklaunch toolbar mechanism, but this does not seem related to the problem.)

What's more when I right click on every other icon in the taskbar, the menu presented includes an option to "unpin" the application from the taskbar. It almost seems that Microsoft is going out of its way to tell me what I want. Yet I haven't seen others complaining of this problem, so perhaps there is a problem with my windows 10 setup? I thought I may have an extra icon somewhere that I could delete, so I checked here:

Answer:Can't unpin Microsoft Edge from taskbar

Hello Paul, and welcome to Ten Forums.

Hi,

I've enabled the auto-hide taskbar in Windows 7, but when the taskbar is hidden, the very top of the taskbar is still visible, leaving an edge.


Is there a fix?

Answer:Hide taskbar leaves an edge

My guess is: this is a video driver issue.

You can try to...
...re-install the same version that you have now
...install a newer version - if available
...install an older version - if available

It would help us to help you if you would fill in your system specs.

When I right-click the Microsft Edge icon on either the Desktop or the Start Menu, I do not get the option to pin to the Taskbar, only the option to pin to Start Menu. Also, dragging the icon to the task bar gives an error symbol and does not work. However, other applications work just fine with the exception of Steam games.

Does anybody know a method to get Edge pinned to the taskbar?

Answer:How do you pin the Microsoft Edge icon to the taskbar?

Edge should be pinned to the task bar upon delivery of the OS to your machine.

Answer:Edge Icon on Desktop and Taskbar

When pinned to Taskbar Edge icon is blue on transparent background by default:
