I am currently running Windows 10 and I recently ran into an issue. When I go full-screen in programs like Photoshop the taskbar does not autohide.

If I right-click on the taskbar and go into settings:

  • Lock the taskbar is disabled
  • Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode is disabled
  • Automatically hide the taskbar in tablet mode is disabled
  • If I go into Control Panel and click on taskbar settings I am greeted by the same list of options above. There is no longer an automatically hide the taskbar option.

    If I enable Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode then the taskbar automatically hides, but all of the time, not just when a program is in full-screen mode.

    What are my options?

    • "When I go full-screen in programs like Photoshop..." - To clarify, does that happen for every program that you switch to full-screen? For example, if you open your web browser and press F11, do you still see the taskbar? – Run5k Dec 17 '16 at 13:53
    • Doesn't appear to be a problem with web browsers, and it only seems to be an issue with some games. – Darth Vader Dec 17 '16 at 14:20
    • That being said, it sounds like the most likely culprit would be the offending application's variation of full-screen mode instead of Windows itself. Hopefully someone else can chime in who has seen similar occurrences on their machine. On mine, all of the applications that I utilize in full-screen mode (web browsers, VLC player, etc.) work quite well. – Run5k Dec 17 '16 at 18:45
