Missing taskbar

by djmshere / January 20, 2016 6:24 AM PST

Please bare with me. I'm not too good at this.
I have Windows Vista and Google Chrome. When using my computer, I have my taskbar visible at the bottom of the screen. Now, when I switch to the internet from Windows, I lose the taskbar. I can minimize Google and have Windows and the taskbar return, but as soon as I switch back to the internet I lose the taskbar. How do I bring it back?
I like to switch between Windows and the internet quite often, but the way it is right now, having to minimize all the time, is very annoying.
Thank you........................Dave

Thanks Kees. That worked fine to switch to full screen, and back again, but I still don't have a taskbar when I'm viewing an internet screen. I don't even have my clock anymore. LOL

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
