What I should have made more clear is that when I'm streaming a movie or video, I click the option in the player to watch the video in "Full Screen Mode". In the past, I have seen nothing on the monitor other than the video, no task bar at the bottom of the screen.
Since re-installing Windows, the task bar doesn't automatically disappear. The video does actually go full screen, but the taskbar stays on top of the video. What I end up doing is right-clicking on the taskbar, selecting 'Properties' and checking the box 'Auto Hide the Taskbar'.
