Steps to reproduce

Whilst playing MMO games in full screen I have noticed the following issue. As I am moving my mouse pointer around the screen and go to the bottom of the screen the taskbar pops up. If you go to the top of the screen three buttons show at the top right of the screen. A minimise button (label shows), a new button with two arrows diagonally at each other (has no label so presume it is the restore down button), and the close button (label shows). As edge is promoted as a platform for playing online games you must realise what a distraction it is if you are in a battle zone somewhere. Serious gamers will not want this happening I’m full screen.


=== updated repro steps ===


  1. Open attached example

  2. Hit F11

  3. Move mouse to edge of the screen where taskbar is (e.g. bottom)


Expected: taskbar doesn’t appear


Actual: taskbar appears
