Windows 7: Click, rather than hover to reveal taskbar - possible?

Click, rather than hover to reveal taskbar - possible?

Does anyone know if there is a way for the task bar to not appear unless it is clicked, rather than hovered over? I presume some kind of GUI-hack would be required.

e.g. in my Opera browser, there is a very narrow bar (~1mm) which hides my bookmarks etc. It doesn't reveal when i hover over that very narrow bar - i must click it.

I like the no-taskbar look, but hovering is irritating because i like slamming the mouse all the way to the edge of the screen to do what needs to be done (like clicking 'x' or whatever).

It's something i've been interested in for a long, long time. I've hunted around, but haven't found anything.
