How do I hide the Black taskbar at the bottom of the screen it is blocking the start button for a game I'm trying to play

Simple: Right click in a blank area of the TaskBar.
Click the Settings (gear/sprocket icon)
In the menu that opens:
Set the slider to "Hide the TaskBar"
After using the TaskBar, it will slide off. To get it, just mouse down to the bottom of the screen and it will slide back up.
(This assumes that the TaskBar is on the bottom. You can also set the TaskBar to be on any of the 4 positions of the screen from that settings menu!)

Want back to internet explorer

Assuming you're using Windows 10, type Internet Explorer into the search box at the bottom of the screen. Find Internet Explorer in the list of results, right-click it to either Pin to taskbar or Pin to Start. To make IE the default browser: Start button> Settings> System> left side menu, select Default Apps then select Set Defaults by App

The taskbar disppears. I have it locked so that it should always be on top of everything else but when it goes into hibernation and it restarted it disappears.

I'm had the same problem with my system. if the 'Start' button is still visible, so you can right-click that, select 'Properties' and change the TaskBar the 'Autohide the Taskbar' and applying that change will result in the Taskbar appearing again (at least when the mouse pointer is positioned by the Taskbar).

if the above one does not work a simple solution that will work:

1. Hit CTRL+ESC to show the Start menu.
2. Right click the menu at the bottom for Properties.
3. Select the Taskbar tab.
4. Check Autohide Taskbar and click the apply button.
5. Uncheck Autohide Taskbar and click the apply button once more.

Your taskbar should reappear when you've completed these 5 steps.

Please give this a try before messing with registry or recovering your machine!

If the taskbar does not show up when you press CTRL+ESC then explorer.exe may not be running. To correct this press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC which will bring up the task manager. Click File, New. Find explorer.exe and open it.

Go into Task Manager. Find explorer.exe and end the process. Restart explorer.exe. If your taskbar magically reappears, you've found the issue. Here are some other symptoms:

After a Windows Vista-based computer has been running for an extended period of time, the desktop screen may stop updating correctly. For example, you may experience any of the following symptoms: • Parts of the screen may go black. • Parts of the screen may become transparent. • The toolbar may disappear. • The toolbar may appear at the top of the screen instead of at the bottom of the screen.
If you add the GDI Objects column for the Explorer.exe process in the Task Manager console, you see that the GDI Objects column has reached the maximal number that is defined in the GDIProcessHandleQuota registry entry.

A hotfix is available from Microsoft:
