    We'll look into this for you. Did this work initially then stop after a cumulative update? What fixes have you tried so far?

    The taskbar had disappeared and then re-appeared after a couple of days. I'm not sure what windows 11 automatic updates might have taken place. I had tried re-starting windows explorer a couple of time with no success.

    Another strange event was that the WIndows key would not work either.

    This morning I decided to try re-starting Windows Explorer again. I used these steps which were suggested on several sites. These are the same steps I used before-that did not work.

    Ctrl + Shift + Esc to launch the Task Manager. Click More details at the bottom if you only see the simple window. Then on the Processes tab, locate Windows Explorer. Right-click it and choose Restart

    This time they did work. The taskbar popped back up. It even came back after a re-start. Not sure why this worked this time, but I just hope the taskbar stays around.

    Thanks for the offer to help.
