Windows 7 - Auto Hide Task Bar

I am looking for a one click shortcut to turn on / off the Auto Hide Task Bar setting.

Currently I right click the task bar and choose properties. Then check or uncheck the box for auto hide the task bar.







Something tells me that someone has already slain this dragon with a batch file or powershell script.

Thanks
Eddie

Welcome to Seven Forums EddieJ. This should work on Seven, if not, try in compatibility mode with Vista.

Taskbar Autohide - CNET Download.com

Or you can use Autohotkey alone, with a script

Auto-hide Taskbar Fails to Auto-hide
I set the Taskbar tab (in Taskbar & Start menu Properties) to Auto-hide the Taskbar. When I select Apply, the taskbar dips and disappears for a second and then comes right back and stays there. Is there a way to make the auto-hide work? W7 Home 6.1 / 7600 Thank you
