windows 11 loses the task bar and start menu

Occasional Contributor

working in a window or two, or three, and then randomly, my taskbar is gone. where it should be is just dark grey space. i can continue to only work in the the windows i had up, but can no longer see any other windows available.

Just learned that i can fix this by using task manager and run a new task for "Explorer.exe". Is there a way we can get a fix for this and understand why Windows Explorer continues to bail on Windows 11?
