So switching back from Full Screen, the task bar didn't come back?
How about in latest build 23?
After update to Build 23, this problem persisted. I suggest to change the title of this topic.
I doubt if the topic title can be edited by forum users. (?)
The whole taskbaar at bottom of screen had disappeared after the following sequence :
1. I opened a movie file (but that's irrelevant) and switched to full screen to watch it (using the F12).
2. To go back in normal display, I tried function keys none of which managed to do so. (using F10-F11-F12)
By 'normal' display, I mean at the top the usual main menu and all usual toolbars and at the bottom the taskbar.
- At this moment however I was able to make appear
the top part of normal display, by moving the mouse pointer towards the top of sreen. (which I used in next point 3.)
- Also at this moment, at the location of where taskbar normally appears, there was only the color of my desktop background, underneath the movie frame.
3. Using the availability to display the menus (moving mouse pointer) I was able to switch back to what I would like to call a "semi-normal" mode (everything ok at top page, normal display of the webpage , but no bottom taskbar; only background color)
4. To quit Windows XP , I used (Ctrl+Alt+Del) TaskManager => ShutDown => Restart
5. Lucky enough the Windows did restart with the Taskbar as usual.
(So I didn't have to launch again a script to restore the taskbar)
Only the "speaker" icon was missing, but I have the impression that this is not related to this issue.
So, this issue can be reproduced here on my PC. I guess that Avant Browser triggers a bug that might not be incriminated directly related to AB itself. But it might as well be. (I can try another browser to see what will happen)
I would suggest that other forum users would try to reproduce the same issue by using WinXP and going trough same sequences.
