I am not sure if this is intended functionality, but when I press the windows key I am unable to interact with the taskbar corner icons in any meaningful way.

 

I have the taskbar set to automatically hide and if I hover over the bottom of the screen to summon the taskbar then I can interact with them as usual, but using the windows key to summon the taskbar results in it hiding the second the system realizes I'm not trying to interact with the start menu or the main/pinned icons.

 

This is extremely annoying as I frequently use the windows key to show my taskbar to interact with my corner icons.
