Missing Taskbar

  morddwyd 10:19 05 Apr 2014

I run two laptops, both Aspires, though different models.

On one of them, when using Chrome, the taskbar disappears. On the other it stays in place as normal.

I've checked the taskbar settings and they're OK, so it must be a Chrome setting, but which one and where? (Win 7, 64)

When you say the taskbar, do you mean the Windows taskbar (usually at the bottom of the screen ) or something that is part of Chrome (and if so what)?

The windows taskbar, normally there all the time, any programme, any computer

Thank you Bris

Found the answer in your link (Close Chrome, change the theme, re-open Chrome)

Spoke too soon - it reverted a few minutes later.

Back to the drawing board!

I am sure you have tried this?

I am using Comodo Dragon but as its based on Chrome the following should apply:

Pressing F11 shifts to full screen mode and F11 shifts it back again.

Found the culprit - it's the magnifier.

Start the magnifier and the first time I change screens after that the taskbar disappears.
