This annoying problem is driving me nuts.

When I press F11 to get a full screen and I move the mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen to get the task bar back most times nothing happens, I have to move the pointer to the sides or top first then it works ok. How, if it's possible, do I fix this ?

Just don't press F11. I tried it, and it was a pain to get rid of the resulting full screen. in the end i closed the window to get the task bar back.

Or try pressing it again, that seemed to work too.

I've just been having a play,I press F11 the screen goes fullsized,press F11 again it returns to as before.I moved the mouse pointer to the bottom and the taskbar reappeared,moved it away it disappears.Nothing I do can recreate this problem,so I feel your just gonna have to stay with your prob.

Moving the pointer to the bottom to get the task bar back works for me sometimes but as you say sapins it is a bit hit and miss, pressing the F11 key again is a better way.

Try moving the pointer to the bottom of the full screen and clicking once; works on my setup.

Legolas, apologies if this is what you meant.

I've experimented and found that I need to move the cursor to the bottom of the screen quickly. If I move down slowly, the taskbar does not appear.

Clicking has no effect.

Do you have 'auto hide taskbar' ticked in task bar settings?
