✔ Best Answer
I assume you mean Win 10. If not, you are way ahead of the rest of us. :-)

Do you have Task Bar set for auto hide? That's when you need to move your cursor to the bottom of the screen for it to show up. I have found that the task bar will occasionally not pop-up when set to auto hide.

Ctrl-Esc will bring it back.

Thanks everyone for your help. First, I should let you know that Win 11 is highly over rated. However, I think most of the bugs will we worked out when it becomes available to the rest of you sometime in the future decades from now. :-)

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming. First, I don't have Auto Hide set to On.

Second, I'm slow in responding because I didn't have the problem recur again until today. When I went to Firefox it was in the compact, non-full sized position. When I hit F11 it opened to a full screen view with no tabs on the top or bottom of the screen. Hitting F11 again brought me back to the compact view.

Oh! Guess what? Somehow when modifying the last paragraph I attempted to hit a key on the very right side of my keyboard (can't remember now what exactly I did) but it was somewhere in the last two grouping of keys (print screen and num lock) and then all of a sudden I have my top and bottom tabs back. Unfortunately I don't know what I That's my update. Thanks again and any other solutionss that come to mind?
