|Target Version||5.0.3||Fixed in Version||5.0|
|Summary||0017583: MM Interferes with Automatically hidden taskbar|
|Description||If the user has enabled Windows' "Automatically hide the taskbar' setting then MM blocks the functionality from working!|
1 In Windows Taskbar settings, enable 'Automatically hide the taskbar in Desktop mode'
2 Maximize MM5
3 Move the cursor to the bottom of the screen
--> Taskbar fails to open!
In contrast maximizing other apps doesn't interfere with the Windows taskbar opening.
Note: I tested with a standard taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but user reported that the issue also occurs when the taskbar is at the left side.

|Fixed in build||2317|
Reopen Still able to replicate in 2317
It partially works:
1. Set Taskbar to not hide
2. Maximize MM5
3. Set taskbar to hide
4. MM5 resizes and normally works/shows when you move mouse to bottom of desktop
5. Restor non maximized MM window -> Maximize again
6. Taskbar do not Show when you move mouse.
I can replicate even more easily:
1 Set Taskbar to hide
2 Run MM5, maximize, move cursor to taskbar
--> fails to open
3 Run firefox, maximize, move cursor to tasbar
--> taskbar opens
The workaround is to reboot the machine (restarting explorer.exe can solve the problems, but it can have the side effect of temporarily losing items from the system tray).
Pushing to 5.0.1, since a complete fix isn't obvious.
This happened only that time and I could not replicate anymore in any version as of 2317-2324
||On build 2404 this issue is present. With MediaMonkey maximized the hidden Taskbar won't show when mousing at the bottom of the screen. This isn't a problem in other maximized applications|
||I'm also not able to replicate. Do you have enabled 'MediaMonkey Player' toolbar in system taskbar ?|
||It's still present on 2407 Portable. However it seems to require some very specific steps as it happened the first time tested, but have not been able to reproduce since.|
