    How to keep taskbar down the bottom all times?


    Hi I have just bought a Asus t100 tablet for my parents. I need to know a couple things:

    I would like to have the taskbar down the bottom at all times. When I goto chrome app the taskbar is gone.

    Can I have the chrome app into a window so I can easily just close it?

    I know you can just swipe it but my parents are used to the window style.

    Thank you

    Hello Mitch,

    It sounds like you are opening the modern Chrome instead of the desktop Chrome.

    Chrome Browser - Toggle Between Desktop and Windows 8 Mode

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    What he said, Metro Apps open full screen and (at the moment) you can't change that. They aren't resizable other than the snap feature. To keep the Desktop taskbar in view you'll need to run the Desktop version of your App.
