    I can remove your taskbar 100% but you will still be able to open the Start Menu with the Windows key on your keyboard if that's any good to you. :)

    I found the C# source code here but it came as code for a small application with two buttons (one to hide the Taskbar and Start Button and one to show them again). I've modified the code to automatically do what you want upon running it and then it exits, it uses the Windows API so there isn't any dirty hacks involved either.

    To make life easier I made it into two exe's, one does the hiding and the other one shows it again.

    Simply extract the exe's to your Windows folder and create a shortcut to the 'HideTaskbar.exe' in the Start Menus 'Startup' folder to make it happen upon each bootup.

    EDIT: Works for Vista too btw!

    Thank you it works flawless!

    However, I have a simple question for you. Is there a way to take advantage of the extra space that we gain after the removal of the taskbar?

    Hi there, I am having the same issue as the OP, and I was just wondering, where is the Start Menu Startups folder? I can't seem to locate it to insert the .exe

    Thanks!

    Big Thanks to Generator, your program works really well!
    I do have one request though. Can someone find a way to not have it reappear all the time? It seems to happen, whenever I get a notification in the taskbar.
    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers Generator, seems like your little app has nailed this problem for me on windows 8 x64.

    I'm using Display Fusions taskbar on all screens, which relies on keeping the windows taskbar operational to function correctly. Autohide is just stupid though, and keeps popping and making a nuisance of itself.

    Might I suggest you contact the developers of Display Fusion, as a few people seem to have been asking for a way to permanently hide the windows native taskbar, just like myself. Your's is the only code that seems to be working for it so far.
