Some users have been reporting not being able to see the taskbar when connecting to a computer via RDP. The Remote Desktop Connection feature makes the use of RDP (or Remote Desktop Protocol) for the user to access a remote computer. This is different from the taskbar being auto hidden until the mouse pointer hovers on it. In this case, the taskbar is entirely inaccessible, making the usage of the remote computer very hard.

Clear cache for multiple processes.
Reinstall the Shell Experience components.
Update, Uninstall, or Rollback, the Display driver.

4] Update, Uninstall or Rollback the Display driver
A flawed installation might have caused the issue. Else, an outdated an incompatible driver might also trigger the same issue. Lastly, a corrupted or improper installation would do the same.
The Display driver is responsible for scaling and arranging components on Windows 10. You can either update the Graphics Driver or rollback or reinstall it. These actions can be performed from the Device Manager under the section of Display adapters.
