- OS: Just upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1
- Software: Display Fusion v7.2 (if meaningful)
- Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 650 Ti
Yes, I upgraded the NVIDIA GeForce driver to Windows 10. I had to, as the only way to bring back the driver and get dual displays. The driver is fine, as are the monitor drivers.
I had the auto-hide feature working up until now. Now, just after upgrading to Win10, the primary display taskbar no longer auto-hides. The secondary display taskbar hides nicely.
If I elect to have only one taskbar, then the primary taskbar still does not hide. I can, however, auto-hide the taskbar for an instant if I uncheck the option to auto-hide the taskbar, click on apply, and click the box to auto-hide the taskbar, and then finally click on the apply button.
No other software is running, so that is not the issue. A reboot does not fix the problem. As far as missing network connections or other system tray issues needing my attention, everything is fine.
In searching articles, one person suggested the obvious: to click on the "Search the web and Windows" and then click away or click on the Start Menu and then go back to the desktop, but alas the taskbar still remains.
Did Microsoft actually test this feature with dual displays?
The problem really seems to be a dual monitor issue. Thoughts?
Update: I turned off the computer in the evening and when I turned on the computer, the primary taskbar was auto-hiding. I was floored, as I had rebooted the previous night. My joy lasted about 30 seconds. As soon as I touched the keyboard to do something, I think launch Microsoft Edge, the taskbar was back to its old ways.
I will temporarily uninstall Display Fusion to rule that out as a suspect tomorrow.
