  • Dota 2 disappears from task bar in Windows 8?

    Windows 8, Dota 2 set to Borderless Windowed Mode (haven't tested if it still does it in fullscreen yet)

    Dota 2 will sometimes completely disappear from the task bar. Stills runs fine and you can alt-tab to it, but it's not on the task bar at all. Not entirely sure when it's disappear because it starts out with the icon being shown, then at some point during play I alt-tab out and notice it is gone.

      I can confirm that this is still a thing, after todays Windows update. Investigate please. Not an insane issue, but mildly annoying.

              Straight up mate, this is more likely an issue with Windows 8 itself. Even if it is something with Dota 2 itself, I very much doubt you'll find a lot of support for Windows 8 with it.

                Pretty annoying, Borderless windows 1080p here. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it isn't. Could a Windows 8 issue.
                Any updates?

                              This still a problem. And if you alt-tab and a game is found, no flashing dota on taskbar.
