    Stop hiding taskbar in Windows XP

    How do i Stop hiding taskbar in Windows XP? I am very frustrated. I have lots of windows running on my computer and when i minimize all the windows by pressing the combination of Windows+D Everything goes away and taskbar hides to. I have to click Alt+Tab this will bring the selected window on top and the rest window also restore to their previous locations behind the selected window. I can only do this properly by minimizing all the window manually. Is there a fix for this? Please help guys!

    I suspect its a virus infected computer. Minimizing all the windows does not hide the taskbar along with the windows. Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del. In the task manager, go to processes tab and see if you find any suspicious process running. Also run an antivirus scan on your computer.

    I was at first suspecting it is some kind of virus, but this is not the same. I have scanned my computer many times, i tried scanning it in safe-mode too, but no luck. I even formatted my computer and re-installed Windows all over again, but the same problem...

    Try doing this :
    • Right-Click on the taskbar > Click properties
    • Check if "Auto-hide the task bar" option is checked
    • If it is checked then uncheck it
    • Click Apply and click OK

    This will stop the hiding of the task bars...

    point your mouse to any section at the lowest bottom of your screen where you always have the taskbar before, right click 'properties' and uncheck the 'hide taskbar' . just like patio explained
