Windows 11 being weird, what's causing this?

Go to solution Solved by NemesisPrime_691,

Windows 11 has a sort of a bug with the taskbar when using multiple monitors (atleast in dual monitor setups) where if you have the start menu open while connecting a monitor or switching modes between Duplicate, Second screen only, or PC screen only, the start menu either just gets stuck on the taskbar or does this weird thing where the start menu is behind the taskbar and does not move.

 

I used to face this almost on a daily basis on my personal laptop (which is on Windows 11) when I connected my external monitor, but not on my work laptop which is still on Windows 10. The only solution to this would be to close the start menu before connecting an external monitor or changing modes. I have not looked through Windows 11 known issues so do not know if this is a bug that is known or reported. I should probably look in the feedback hub and report this is not already.

 

Hope this helps. 

 

Edit: in case the start menu is already stuck, open Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) and restart the Windows Explorer.

Just a little bit of info for you. I run a dual monitor set up and this is my second monitor. The first monitor runs great, but the second taskbar seems to have a few issues as you can see from the screenshot. It'll also hide behind windows on occasions and sometimes, it'll even lose my icons pinned to it.

Windows 11 isn't really in it's final form. There are many feature updates yet to come, there are still a huge number of graphical issues and other bugs. The biggest issues I've experienced so far are:

 

1. Notifications are delayed, usually by around an hour (Or just show up twice, once when the notification arrives, and again an hour later)

2. Open windows will cross over the taskbar, covering parts of it. Clicking on the taskbar brings the taskbar back into full view

 

That's just my experience so far. Don't expect it to be perfect yet

I'll try that. Windows 11 seems to be just a rework of Windows 10, and I understand there's going to be bugs and weirdness happening. That being said, I absolutely love the new OS and just trying to figure out its gears. I'm not complaining about anything that happens, but maybe someone else has had the same weirdness happen to them and they have a solution.
