I have windows 8.1.

My taskbar is set to not auto hide and it is locked.  This works fine for many programs.
However, it hides in some programs like Chrome.

How do I prevent it from hiding in Chrome, for example.?

Thank you.

You're sure it hides and you're not simply using apps from the store? Those will run full screen, not on desktop, and consequently you'll not see the taskbar.

If you don't want it to "hide" anymore, use a desktop version of the Chrome browser: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/

Running Chrome on Desktop version solved my main problem immediately.

Thanks for the quick responses.

FYI, I learned from a question yesterday that I can also click the extreme right end of the Taskbar, which will return me to the good-old Desktop.

Yup. They removed the "Show desktop" shortcut since Windows 7 and added the "too tiny to click it" right side of the taskbar with the same functionality.
