    I am unable to resize the Task Bar. Auto-Hide does not function. When in portrait mode, the Task Bar takes nearly a third of the screen. If I am successful (and that is not always the case) at moving the Task Bar to either side, the effective screen area is reduced. I have played with Auto Hide the Task Bar; it does not ever "hide".

    Even after I turn off all notifications & icons, it is still too big.
    It appears that the notification buttons are crowded to one side, pushing up the height of the task bar.

    This WAS NOT a problem in WIN 8.1. I am no novice with Windows. I cannot figure this out. I am angry beyond belief.

    It dawns me again why non-tech types are drawn to iPAD & iPHONE: IT ALWAYS WORKS. No fussing around with a "bizzillion" settings.

    For the time being, I have put on hold any plans to update either of my laptops, one on Win 7 and one on Win 8.1.

    That sounds funny..1/3.. Very random issue. Anyway are you sure the screen resolution is maxed out?

    However I'm sure it would work on Laptops, mine came from 7,8 to 10.

    Thanks for your willingness to reply! The Screen resolution is set to the recommended level. If you mean "some value * some value"

    There are too many random issues. Hope they fix this faster, people are upgrading :)
