Windows 7: taskbar won't pop up in some programs

taskbar won't pop up in some programs

All of the sudden my taskbar won't pop up in certain programs. Have to minimize the program to access taskbar and this is very much a pita!
I did a sfc/scannow in the command prompt and no corrupted files were found.
Not sure where to go from here.
Thank You

Thanks Berton. But nothing for me there.
I'm not doing any gaming so nothing is in full screen mode. So far, it seems only my autodesk products are the only applications that don't allow the taskbar to pop up. Most other programs do.
I'm constantly working in multiple programs and need to switch back and forth often.
So you can see why this is driving me crazy.

Thanks Berton. I previously checked out Autodesk's subscription support and they said there are no known issues of this happening and suggested it was probably a windows 7 issue.
I'm kind of disagreeing at this point cause this never happened till I upgraded to the 2015 versions of their software.
The thread you linked to is pretty old, (2006), and not quite the same problem I'm having.

If the problem has only started since you upgraded the Autodesk program to the 2015 version it does seem that is the culprit.
It's likely that the 2015 version is fairly new & some bugs may be starting to show up, but not yet recognised at the Autodesk website. Probably best to keep hounding them as I am sure there will be more complaints lodged soon if this is a problem.
