[Desktop][Windows] Can't access auto-hidden taskbar when maximised

If the windows taskbar is set to auto-hide then maximizing the Spotify window makes it impossible to reveal the taskbar using the mouse (Win + T still works).


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Set the Windows taskbar to auto-hide.
  2. Maximize the Spotify window.
  3. Move the mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen (or wherever the taskbar is docked).

Expected result:

    The taskbar is revealed on top of the Spotify window.


Actual result:

    The taskbar does not show at all.

In recent versions several folks are reporting this as fixed. We're going to close this thread now. Please post if you're still experiencing the issue. Thanks for the reports!
