If the Windows 10 taskbar does not work,

These corrections include common taskbar items,

Like not working by auto-blocking or hiding.

Microsoft has introduced new Taskbar tricks in Windows 10.

Below we will discuss what has changed in the Taskbar with the advent of Windows 10

We will also provide some fixes for the most common cases that bother the Taskbar.

1. Restart Windows Explorer.

The first quick step when a taskbar problem occurs is to restart the explorer.exe process   .

This controls the Windows skin, which includes the File Explorer program, as well as the Taskbar and Start Menu.

By restarting it, you can fix any small problems.

To restart the process,  Ctrl + Shift + Esc  Press the  button  to launch the Task Manager.

If you only see the simple window, click on  more ditails  at the bottom.

Then in the Processes tab   ,  find Windows Explorer  . Right-click on it and   select Restart .

You will notice that your taskbar disappears for a minute and returns again.

This is normal and when he returns, I hope he returns to normal.

If this does not work, you can sign out of your account and sign in again.

Don’t forget that restarting your PC is always a good idea if you haven’t done so in a while.

When you enable the Auto-Hide Taskbar feature,

If it does not work properly, it is annoying.

If the Explorer restart process does not work or this happens repeatedly,

You can try other solutions.

First make sure you have auto-hide enabled. Go to  Settings> Personalization> Taskbar

Be sure to  enable Automatic hide the taskbar in desktop mode . While here,

It’s worth it to deactivate and reactivate it.

One of the most important reasons why the Taskbar does not run automatically is a program that needs your attention.

While this is often accompanied by a glowing app icon, this is not always the case.

Scroll through the apps you open and make sure no more error messages or alerts are waiting for you.

If a website displays a notification or it may

WhatsApp has received a new message, your browser can change to this “attention” mode.

If reviewing open programs does not resolve this issue, take a look at the programs in the System Tray.

One of them, running in the background, may call for attention.

If you regularly encounter this problem, try setting notifications for a program that is constantly stuck open  Settings> System> Notifications & actions

Check the settings of the program itself If it fails, reinstalling the program may solve the problem.

3. Windows 10 Taskbar icons are missing

If your taskbar has lost its icons and the system does not show the clock and other functions at the bottom right,

You may have to go to the command line to fix your problem. Fortunately, this is not as scary as it sounds.

First, use the Windows + X shortcut   (or right-click the Start button) to open the Power User menu.

From here you can   launch the Command Prompt  (Admin) or  Windows PowerShell (Admin) window.

From each of these, you can access several tools that can fix the problem.

In the resulting instruction, you must first try an SFC instruction 

Which runs the  System File Checker  program to patch Windows problems.

Use this command to do this, then restart it when the reboot is complete


sfc /scannow

If this does not fix the problem, you can try another program.

Enter the following command to call up the  service and manage Disk Image Service (DISM)

Notice that your Taskbar returns to normal after restarting:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
