Windows 7: Remove Taskbar 100%

24 Aug 2015   #71

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Found a fix for this myself. Instead of adding it to the Startup folder, I created a new Scheduled Task and had it delay 30 seconds before triggering. Works like a charm now.

I found the C# source code here but it came as code for a small application with two buttons (one to hide the Taskbar and Start Button and one to show them again). I've modified the code to automatically do what you want upon running it and then it exits, it uses the Windows API so there isn't any dirty hacks involved either.

To make life easier I made it into two exe's, one does the hiding and the other one shows it again.

Simply extract the exe's to your Windows folder and create a shortcut to the 'HideTaskbar.exe' in the Start Menus 'Startup' folder to make it happen upon each bootup.
