Task bar on 2nd screen doesn't rise up

Occasional Contributor

Hello,

 

I've upgraded to Windows 11 yesterday, and I have an annoying behavior:

My taskbar is configured to hide automatically, and it behaves properly on my main monitor.

But on my 2nd monitor, my taskbar doesn't rise when I move the mouse to the bottom, unless I right click - which also obviously brings up the context menu.

 

This appears to be a bug. I tried playing with the taskbar settings, but nothing had a different effect.

 

Does anyone else experience this?

Hi @jimbidf,

Please follow the steps below to configure the Windows taskbar:

  • Open the Settings by pressing Win + I
  • Go to the following location:
    Personalization > Taskbar > Taskbar Behaviors 
    Check the option, Show my taskbar on all displays as shown in screenshot.Taskbar issue on 2nd screenTaskbar issue on 2nd screen
It is checked.
The task bar does pop up if I right-click. But that is not the correct behavior.

@jimbidf This will reinstall start menu components and also reset the associated apps...

 

Start Powershell -> Start Menu -> Run -> taskmgr -> File -> Run new Task -> %SystemRoot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -> Select "Create this task with administrative privileges." -> Click OK.

@Mousefluff Thanks, but it didn't really help. I doubt it has something to do with these errors, but maybe... I got them on several packages, but not on all.

After running it, I got the task bar to rise once, but then it didn't do it again. Running the script again produced the same results.

@jimbidf 

It says you have apps in use while this is running...

I couldn't understand what apps those were. I tried shutting down everything except for services, and it didn't help.

In any case, I somehow doubt packages are the culprit here. I don't use and customization on my desktop. No plugins or extensions, except for maybe some developer tools. It all worked fine before the move to Windows 11 - and the problem showed immediately.

Seems like the issue was fixed in one of the recent updates.
