Hide the taskbar in Windows 10

Windows 10 update changes the way how to hide the taskbar.
The old way was the traditional way of hiding the taskbar just like in Windows XP, by right clicking on an empty taskbar and selecting “properties” and from the properties window there is an option to hide the taskbar automatically.
However, Windows 10 OSes that has  been updated, right clicking the empty taskbar does not show “properties” anymore.  Instead of clicking or finding properties, click on “settings” and on the settings Window, an option to hide the taskbar in desktop mode can be enabled or disabled.
See screens shot below, on how to do it:

Windows 7 black screen after windows logo

Windows 7 just show a black screen, after showing the windows logo on startup.
On Windows startup with the black screen, try pressing caps lock key. If caps lock key respond normally, then there’s a chance that windows boot up properly. Press the power button for 3 seconds and release it.
If windows shutdown properly, turn on the computer again. This time, try pressing F8 to go to safe mode.
In safe mode, open device manager. Open windows explorer, right click on “This Computer” or “My Computer” and select properties, this will open device manager.  Or alternatively, go to control panel and select device manager.
In Device Manager, select the Display Adapter, right click on it and click properties. From the properties, uninstall the driver. Don’t worry windows will install its standard or default display driver.
Restart or shutdown the computer, if the problem is just the corrupted display driver then startup should be working  fine and the black screen issue is not present anymore.
