Hello Rockit,

The problem is that the registry setting for this is a binary value that includes other settings that will vary per user account, and can't have a universal on/off for everyone without affecting the other settings.

If you like, you could use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to help create a couple of .bat files or a script to toggle taskbar auto-hide on/off.

My friend was wandering how you could get rid of that barely top part of the task bar when it is in auto-hide. So is this possible? Note: You have to look really close to see it.

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

Is this possible? I want to make it so that when no windows are maximized (when the taskbar isn't covered with anything) auto hide disables itself and the taskbar is shown. Is this possible?
