Apple Mac "Taskbar" won't disappear
« on: Sunday 23 July 2017, 10:23:06 AM »
So my lass has an Apple Mac which I occasionally use and from what I remember, if you had an application open such as Safari, the "task bar" (f*** knows what it's called on this contraption) would disappear and you could browse with no issues.

Now though, the task bar is constantly open and displayed and pushes the Safari screen up, which means that you can't speak to people on FB messenger when it's open as the screen can only scroll down so far.

Does anyone know how we can get rid of this being displayed so the internet screen is just normal ? I've tried google but tbf a lot of it makes no sense as I'm not familiar with the names on Apple computers.

System preferences > dock > automatically show and hide the dock.

Thanks mate, that sorted the part of hiding which I assumed was going to help with the FB messenger situation, but it hasn't. :(

I've maximised the Safari window but it only shows 3/4 of the conversation and doesn't allow me to reply, even if I open the chat window in a page of it's own.

Are you zoomed in? hit CMD and 0 at the same time.

Thanks mate, for some reason it seems to have sorted itself but if it happens again I'll give that a try!
