Happy hunting.

If you find out how, it sure would make a good tutorial for you to create one for.

So far, after a bit of searching, it looks like its probobly going to be in a taskbar dll file instead of the registry.

And another question. Is there something I can use for a system tray that can still show up with the taskbar hidden?

Michael,

Not on the taskbar itself, but maybe with using something like the free program Fences.

Windows 7 Taskbar ALWAYS on top, problem solved 17 oct 2011

17 oct2011_ i had the problem with the Windows 7 Taskbar ALWAYS on top. Couldn't get it to hide auto. even though i had clicked the auto hide....

after a lot of searching, some of the "solutions" said it stayed up possibly caus an application needed action>

i solved the problem by looking at the icons in the taskbar.

found a "little white flag" and when i moved mouse over it,
it said "action center" you need to do this for win 7 to operate properly.

so, i clicked the flag in the taskbar and it said.. you need to install an update for office 2007..

i said to myself, go for it..

as soon as i said , do the update.. it did the update to visio and then, the action required by the "action center" was completed.. no more action items.

then, after there were no more action items, the "action center" was not trying to advise me of a required action.

and it turned loose the task bar. it then did the auto hide like it was designed to be done.

so, all of those other "experts" who tried to fix it were not accurate.

this is the real solution.. it would have been nice if ms had had a "pop up" to tell u to the action recommended by the design of win 7 action center ..

Not many users are going to look at the "little white flag" in the task bar..

Hello Krystal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is the taskbar not showing in certain situations, or everywhere (ex: desktop) ?

in some places it's above the bottom of an app so i can't see the stuff under which is not usual. but it some cases it's completely covered but it shows on the desktop.

In that case you may be in full screen mode when you cannot see the taskbar. When this happens press F11 to toggle the window you have open back to normal mode to see if that may be it.

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.
