    Lightbulb [New App] Hide Taskbar with a click in Windows 7

    We are pleased to release the Hide Taskbar. An application which will help you to hide your Taskbar completely leaving Start ORB as it is. While you can always use the ‘Auto hide’ feature to hide the taskbar and make it appear only when you take your mouse pointer down to the bottom of the desktop.

    Hide Taskbar lets you hide only the taskbar, and not the Start Button, with a click. Simply download and run the app. Use hotkeys Ctrl+Esc to hide or un-hide the taskbar.



    See the screenshot of my Desktop above, I have used Hide Taskbar to hide my taskbar. Its an On-Request App someone on TWC Forums requested for an application that can hide taskbar and here I am with my Hide Taskbar application.

    So wanna give it a try

    Download | HomePage

    Do let me know if you like this software, and yeah if some can test it on XP and Vista than that will be great.

    What is that different than "Autohide" in the taskbar properties. Is it the Start button that stays?

    whs, when you use Autohide you can still see a small glimpse of taskbar (a narrow strip at bottom), but here you won't. Check it out and see yourself.

    Hmm, but that glimpse is really small. I would not worry about it. And at my age, I can barely see it anyhow.
    But I do not hide the taskbar. I was just curious of what your program was actually doing. I hide my Rocket Dock, but that is just a program/folder launcher. The taskbar gives me valuable information and that I like to see all the time.

    => The real Difference in Vista is that programs could not use the new free area on the bottom : it just show the background...

    I wanted to use the taskbar area for my progs... sorry

    OK, Thanks. Understood. I am on Windows7 with a 22" screen, so I guess I do not have that problem.

    ^ Create its shortcut and place it in your Startup folder viz: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Window s\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
