How do I get back to the menu that was in Windows 10 where I could click always show?

I tried shell:::{05d7b0f4-2121-4eff-bf6b-ed3f69b894d9} in the Run window and that did not work. Nothing popped up.

Yes there is. Right click on taskbar. Select taskbar settings. Toward the bottom click on taskbar behaviors. From there you can hide or unhide the taskbar by toggleing it on or off. Also that is where you can hide or unhide certain icons that the OS automatically pins to taskbar (ie teams, widgets,chat) You can also change what icons always appear in the bottom right system tray.

So, I was wrong. This problem has not resolved.

Restarting my PC undoes the explorer shell:::{05d7b0f4-2121-4eff-bf6b-ed3f69b894d9} fix.

Anyone know why or how to make it perm?
