Windows 7 Taskbar Not Hiding in Full Screen

by anotherWilson   Last Updated April 03, 2017 06:01 AM

This a weird issue I've been dealing with for a while. Whenever I watch a video in full screen, the taskbar stays on top of the video. I can force it to hide by doing the following in this order:

 1. Exit fullscreen
 2. Click show desktop on the taskbar (minimizing all windows)
 3. Click show desktop on the taskbar (maximizing all windows)
 4. Re-enter fullscreen 

I have an Nvidia graphics card, with the current driver. The OS is fully up to date.

I currently have the taskbar set to auto-hide as a work-around but would prefer to have an actual solution. Has anybody run into this before?
