Autohide taskbar invisible on target computer

My target machine has "auto-hide" set for the task bar.

So when I connect to it, the task bar is invisible.  Sliding the cursor down to the bottom of the screen usually makes the taskbar visible, but now that only makes the taskbar on my local machine visible!   How can i get to the (hidden) start button on the (hidden) taskbar on the target machine so i can turn off auto-hide?

Re: Autohide taskbar invisible on target computer

me too! 
This seriously limits what I can actually do on the target computer!!!
I have sometimes fooled around with the resolution settings in TV and then put them back the way they were, and that makes the taskbar available,.......sometimes! 
but this is not reliable. 
I am using TV to support some elderly friends and other newbies.
and I can hardly do anything for them!

The only way I can get it to apper is to change the Display %, then it only stays up for 1 iteration, so I finally locked it again.

Re: Autohide taskbar invisible on target computer

I have a workaround that seems pretty good.

I'm on a Mac, communicating with a remote computer running Windows (the taskbar is set to auto-hide because an application runs full-screen on the remote computer which would otherwise be partically obscured by task bar).

If I hover the mouse over the place that should cause the taskbar to unhide (but doesn't) and then use Cmd-TAB twice (on a Windows machine, you'd use Alt-TAB) to switch away from teamviewer and back on my local computer, then the taskbar appears.

Thanks for the hint. I found it's SHIFT-TAB on windows.
