Windows 7: Taskbar disappears

10 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 RTM
 
 
Taskbar disappears

This has happened twice i think. Not sure what causes it but the taskbar will literally disappear.

You can see my background picture where the taskbar is suppose to be. However you still see the Start Menu Launcher button on the bottom left.

I've seen it twice, I just hit the Windows key, then opened an app, and it came back.

Got it back. I just right clicked where the taskbar would be, and changed one of the Properties.

Thanks all

I didn't have that happen yet, however I had my desktop disappear. It had to do with something in start-up when connected to a projector. Started just like this.

Mine has had the same thing happen twice now. I just left it for 5 minutes and the screen saver came on, then when I came back the taskbar was gone.

I managed to fix it by going into 'Taskbar and Start Menu Settings' in the control panel and playing around. I moved it to the other positions around the screen and it still didn't appear, but I got it to come back by selecting 'auto hide the taskbar' and then deselecting it.

My taskbar does that sometimes, a few times when I access the snipping tool.
