Taskbar Removal

I'm working on a custom desktop and so i really need to find a way to disable the original taskbar. I'm not talking about "Auto-Hiding" it , i just want it gone, but i still would like it to pop up when i press the Windows Key. Is that possible?

Hi Orongan,

Does your design software have a Fullscreen mode, like Photoshop? That might work to stop the Taskbar from triggering when Auto-hidden.

Hi Orongan!

You might want to have a look at Taskbar Eliminator.

Its very handy if you use a dock. Just run the EXE file and it'll hide the taskbar. If you want to show the taskbar again, press the "Ctrl + Alt + T" keys and it'll show the main window where you can easily unhide the taskbar again. Also you can set the program to start automatically with Windows7.

[Update] Taskbar Eliminator 2.3: Hide / Remove Windows Taskbar - Tweaking with Vishal

Hope this helps.
