if using a touchscreen in 8.1 and in desktop and have taskbar auto hiding and want to get it to pop up... there is apparently NO CONSISTENT WAY to get it to do so. In Win 7, you can swipe up from the bottom and it pops right up. It is inconceivable to me that this does not work in 8.1.

really becomes a major annoyance when using my new 2in1 HP in tablet mode. WTF am I missing???
