Windows 7: Remove Taskbar 100%

Hello again!

Your taskbar "hider" has been wonderful, however the taskbar frequently finds its way back after using certain applications such as, full screen video games, movies. When I close out of a game or movie I had just recently ran the taskbar re-appears and I am forced to launch your .exe once again.

Sorry, I am not one to complain and just thought I would let you know. You have quiet a few fans of your software and they are also curious to see if there is a solution to this.

Thanks again for all your help.

Many people use rocketDock and Rainmeter to customize their desktops. Not only do these UI modifications look great but they take up less resources than that of the sidebar.

None of these things do what they need to. Taskbar is part of the shell -- explorer.exe. You'll lose most everything replacing it and that's why they don't try it!

If you really want it gone get Emerge Desktop and add your dock to that.

LOL oh ok. I'm just a little surprised the lengths some of you go to in order to hide it or do a completely different desktop setup. Especially when it could potentially mess up Windows operability.

I noticed it said Solved in the title... but couldn't help posting this. It's my own personal app for hiding the taskbar. It hides it completely, except for the start button. But that can be hidden by using a start orb with full transparency (and it doesn't register when you click in that area when you use this if you are using such a start orb).

No problem. The code is so simple, I doubt much can go wrong with it

Or at least... so far. Mwuahaha.... (embarrassingly looks around)
