Dear mcrmg,

Right-click on start
go to properties

go to task bar tab and uncheck "auto hide taskbar"

See that if that would help

or press ctrl + esc ( equalivent to windows key)

Thanks,

Hi,

The "auto hide taskbar" is unchecked, and I move cursor to the bottom, (sometimes you can see a double head arrow), but still, not the case.

mcrmg,

try system file checker..

press ctrl + alt + del ..
go to task manager.
go to file --> new

in that give "sfc /scannow"

Let us know if that would solve the issue
