Hidden task bar intermittently doesn't appear.
Posted on 2007-03-30
I run my Windows XP (SP2) with the task bar hidden and when I want to access it, I just move the cursor down to the bottom of the screen and it appears. At least, it used to do that. Ever since I put SP2 on, I intermittently experience a problem where the task bar won't appear until I hit Microsoft key between the Ctrl key and Alt key on the left of the keyboard.
I'm wondering if anyone has reported this before and if there's a quick fix. I could shut off all the startup programs and start testing that way, but since it is intermittent, it could take awhile.
