Windows 7: Auto-Hide Taskbar Help

Auto-Hide Taskbar Help

Hi,

I have recently set the taskbar to Auto-Hide, but I am having some issues with it.

First of all, I can see a few pixels of the taskbar on the bottom of the screen (small line, not completely hidden).

And second, when I hover (the mouse) over the hidden taskbar, it comes up very slowly. Is there a way to increase the speed of this?

Thanks, I solved Question 2.

But for Question 1, I know this is normal, but is there anyway to change this?

Which toolbar do you have in the task bar?
If you right click on the taskbar>Toolbar> you can see multiple toolbars (ex. search, iTune, links, language,...etc, depending on what you have installed).
If there are some toolbars that are checked but you don't use them, you can uncheck them and see if this will help to fix the problem.
I think, the small line will disappear after reboot your system. I had such a problem many times, even some words stay stuck on the screen too!

I don't have any toolbars, and a reboot won't help... I've tried before.

If you can post some screenshot of your problem, this may help better.

Yup speedgamer, that's my issue. I don't like that line and want to remove it if possible.

Sorry, I don't see any line in this screenshot!
I see white spots on blue background, but not lines.
I wondered if this is not a theme!

Why won't the taskbar auto-hide?
Anyone else seen this. I cannot get the task bar to auto hide. I tell it to auto-hide, but it always stays on top, which is annoying because it covers other useful stuff.. Any help appreciated..

Taskbar Auto-hide but with Taskbar showing
Hey guys, I was wondering how I could have the "auto-hide the taskbar" option on but the taskbar still being displayed. Because I have my taskbar to where it's transparent and I would like the extra space from the auto-hide. This is what I want it to ultimately look like.

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

Disable taskbar Auto-Hide when taskbar isn't covered?
