Game minimizes automatically

Hello everyone, I am facing a strange issue recently. When I play games online, it automatically minimizes the taskbar. There are no other tabs open.
I can't understand why it happens. Please help me to solve this problem. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

You talk about the windows taskbar right?
Why does it disturb you, do you play in windowed mode so you see the taskbar while games are active?
Normally you play in fullscreen mode so the taskbar and all other windows stuff will be hidden for sure.
And due to this normally it's the other way around that the taskbar pops up in front of games :-)

Did you right click the taskbar -> task bar settings, and checked if the "hide taskbar in desktop/tablet mode" setting is enabled?
Should also happen within windows than that your taskbar hides, not only if you play games.

Else I'd recommand searhcing online for what you have done here as this is no windows forum, it's dedicated to Elder Scrolls Online, which is not able to hide your taskbar

Try goggle or any other search website and search for "Windows taskbar hides if game active" or similar.

Thanks for reverting back. I have solved this issue by updating the GPU driver of my PC. This article helped me a lot to solve the issue by updating GPU driver.
