Taskbar is in the way while using Modern UI Apps

I think you misunderstood Kif. I turned off showing store apps in the task bar, but then I turned it back on. I now have the behavior that I (and I think you) want. When I am in desktop the apps show in the taskbar and the taskbar is always on. When I switch to a Metro UI app either by swipe gesture or by clicking on the app, the taskbar disappears and the Metro UI app uses the whole screen.

My fix is enable 'Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing'. Unfortunately this setting isn't sticking on my system when I reboot it so I have to keep enabling it.

How does one open a support ticket with Microsoft for these issues?
