Now, you need to take some decisive steps to ensure that the problem is fixed once and for all, but you will have to act in stages, because this is very important:

  • Hover the mouse cursor over the Windows menu and perform a single left mouse click → as soon as the Start menu opens, you need to perform a single one again click on the "Windows" button;
  • Look carefully at the application shortcuts that are located on the "Taskbar", perhaps some of them are highlighted in color, in such a situation you need to launch the application and, accordingly, familiarize yourself with what it offers you to read in the notification → after familiarization, close / minimize the application;
  • Open all the signs that are located in the notification area – this is done with a single click on the arrow pointing up (it is located on the "Taskbar") → in the small window that opens, you need to see if there is any notification from those programs that are currently running;

  • Open the item "Receive notifications from applications and other senders", which is located along the following path: "Parameters" → then "System" → and the final system section "Notifications and actions";
  • It is necessary to restart the "Explorer" - to do this, go to the "Task Manager" → among the huge number of processes we find the one called "Explorer" → click on the "Explorer" and select "Restart";
  • Also, you can try to close all programs that are displayed by shortcuts in the notification area one by one – right-click on the shortcut → select "Exit" in the menu that appears;
  • Perhaps you are using Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise, in such a situation you need to check the "policy" - press Win+R at the same time → enter the command - gpedit.msc → check the "policies", which are located in the "User Configuration" section - "Start Menu and taskbar", here everything should have the "Not set" parameter;
  • If not one of the above methods did not help, we suggest using a third-party Hide Taskbar application, which is completely free and allows you to hide the "Taskbar" while pressing Ctrl+Esc.
