just wanted to note how to hide the windows taskbar with nexus, right click the nexus launcher and click preferences then go to tasks and check “hide windows taskbar”

still present in 26.0.2


What version of Winstep Nexus are you using? The issue doesn’t reproduce during tests with version 12.2.
Are you sure the issue is not produced by a combination of options in the Nexus application?



did you make sure to check the option under tasks “hide windows taskbar”?


Yes I’ve used the settings you mentioned.

Please try to hide the Windows Taskbar from its own properties panel (you should deactivate the “Hide Windows taskbar” option in Nexus first).
If the issue doesn’t reproduce when you use the built-in Windows functionality then fault lies in the way Nexus forces the taskbar to stay permanently hidden.


i only happens when nexus hides the taskbar but the problem is only with dragon. when you hide the taskbar with windows a very small line stays on the bottom of the screeen so the user knows its hidden but not gone. When you disable the taskbar with nexus it removes that small line which dragon doesnt recognized and just shows a white line.

ok after more testing it do look like its a bug in nexus sorry about the confusion, ill close this topic

thanks for your help George-Silviu Blendea
