Windows 7: 7 taskbar not autohiding

7 taskbar not autohiding

7 pro 64-bit Taskbar will not autohide. Unchecking autohide and rechecking it and clicking apply or Ok will cause it to hide briefly but then it will just pop up again. This behavior happens even with no programs open. Also, I've noticed that gone is the feature where if the taskbar is unlocked you can minimize the taskbar to nothing (as if its autohidden permanently). when autohide would quirk out on me I used to do that as a last resort. But I have tried everything and cannot get it to work. this is a relatively new install of 7 on a core2duo dell latitude d830.

Restarted again with it turned off and THEN turned it back on and now it seems to be sticking. We'll have to wait and see if it actually stays this way.

have to be careful with auto hide. there is an ongoing known problem with auto hide and sleep hibernate. May be why yours will not hide. might have something in power config.

good luck

Drag top border line of taskbar downwards to hide taskbar
Is there a method/hack or a 3rd-party program that allows the user to hide the taskbar by dragging its top border line downwards, after un-locking the taskbar? I remember I could do that under Win9x.

Disable taskbar Auto-Hide when taskbar isn't covered?
Is this possible? I want to make it so that when no windows are maximized (when the taskbar isn't covered with anything) auto hide disables itself and the taskbar is shown. Is this possible?
