Windows 7: Auto Hide Desktop Icons (And Taskbar)

Auto Hide Desktop Icons (And Taskbar)

This is a nifty little tool. I've been using for a week or so. It auto hides the desktop icons after an amount of time you set (from 3-100 seconds). You then just click on desktop (left, center, or right, you choose) to show icons. No installation required. It sits in notification area (if you tell it to), and you can easily disable it if you are working with items on your desktop. I use a dock, but always have something on my desktop, now they only show when I want to see them. Pretty cool. You can also use the auto hide and show taskbar feature.

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.

Taskbar (Auto-Hide) doesn't hide all the way?
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?
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?
