Windows 7: how do you unhide taskbar with only windows icon key?

02 May 2010   #11

Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

Yea, I was about to say that. There's a shortcut in there somewhere (too many, I think, I made it poorly... ) that takes it. You might be able to use this app if you run ST first and then this.

I'll remove the help momentarily.

Trying to find the 'hide taskbar' AHK mentioned in this thread.

I realise I'm a few years late, but if anyone has any idea where I could find the autohotkey script mentioned in this thread, or knows of another way to make the taskbar only appear when the windows button is pressed, I'd be very appreciative.
