Hi! I need some help with OMSI and my PC! For some reason when OMSI used to start up it would hide the task bar. Now the taskbar will not hide itself and I can no longer get it to hide. It is very annoying as I cannot play OMSI as the start button is hidden behind the task bar. For some reason the settings or start will not open either. Please help me out! Thanks! PTDriver0429

Settings has now started after a restart however he task bar is still not disappearing.
Try and bring OMSI to the top/front, I think on task manager (I’m not on a PC at the moment). Otherwise just minimise the taskbar by right clicking on the taskbar, go to taskbar settings, and select hide taskbar on desktop mode. Should work.

Glad you have sorted it mate! If it happens again (I have the same issue sometimes), click the OMSI 2 icon on the taskbar to minimise it (even though the window itself may not minimise), and then click it again to return to active full-screen mode.

Does this happen for other games too?

Generally if you open task manager and restart "explorer.exe" that usually solves this particular issue

I did just Manage to go into settings and make the task bar disappear only reappearing when you slide the cursor over it. After a restart I have got it working! Getting a new PC soon anyway so...

Yep I did get it working. It only took 5 restarts! I tried what you said and it still did not minimise. The bar did not disappear either. I have windows 10 and anyway it turned out it was just a windows bug and the 50 updates sorted it out. I hardly ever shut my PC down because it takes ages to turn on again. It’s all sorted and it is all working. Thanks for your support though!
