    Takbar will not auto hide

    I have a Windows 8 Pro install with Media Center and have auto-hide checked in task bar options and it will hide once and then will stay up forever, any one know a fix for this issue. My Laptop has the same thing checked in control panel but it hides the task bar no problem.

    Hi sandman,

    perhaps there are some corrupt systemfiles on your pc. You might want to try this tutorial:

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    It works for a lot of small problems!

    Good luck with it.

    Thanks for the reply already tried scannow found nothing wrong. Its like something is open keeping it from flipping back down but nothing is working in background that I can find.

    Try booting into safe mode:

    Put this into CMD (Windows+X then A)
    shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00

    And see if it still happens. That should indicate to us if it's a windows problem or 3rd party software problem.
