Taskbar Auto-Hide Feature

For some reason, the auto hide feature does not work. If I select it and apply, the bar drops down and comes back up. I have tried several times. It is annoying as media controls and web page buttons are hidden behind the task bar.

The taskbar remains raised all the time. I have minimized everything, looking at desktop, but taskbar still visible. Only time it drops is when I select apply for autohide, then comes right back up.
Thanks
