Re: Task bar disappears after closing portable nvda

farhan israk

I have many addons. I have installed copy. However, I am using portable copy on my uncle's computer. I did not notice this behavior in my uncle's computer. I have not installed nvda in this computer.

I can't think of anything obvious - do you have any add-ons?  You mention you made a portable copy to take to your uncle - do you have NVDA installed, and if so, I assume that is NOT doing the same thing?

Thank you. No, unless I restart windows explorer, task bar does not appear.

Hi Farhan,

I just tried here and can't immediately replicate it.  I have seen previously - unrelated to NVDA - where explorer crashes, the taskbar can disappear or appear empty for a little while.  I've found when this happens in Windows 10, it usually sorts itself out after a few seconds, although the open windows may be in a different order to where they were previously.  Could it be something like that?   Does the taskbar come back after say 10 or 20 seconds?

I am using windows 10 21h2 and nvda 2021.3.5. I have noticed a strange issue. Suppose I have turned on portable copy to check that this copy is working properly or not after creating portable copy. I am going to visit my uncle's house tomorrow. So, I created a portable copy. If I exit the portable copy after confirming everything is working and turn on the standard or normal copy, the taskbar disappears. I neither can focus the task bar pressing windows + t nor pressing tab several times after focusing desktop. However, I have not verified by a sighted person. So, I cannot say strongly that it really disappears or nvda cannot focus on it. I have to restart windows explorer from the task manager to bring it back. I have noticed this strange issue two times.
