Windows 7: ShyBar - an automatic Windows 7 taskbar hider

Wish that it'd be updated for Windows 8, even though W10 is out.

Any chance for a update?

Several people have run it on Windows 8.1; I tested it briefly as working also. But if you found a particular issue that needs to be addressed then please let me know.

* I am currently not at home for an extended period so any updates will probably take a while.

Hi, I just found this program after 10 minutes of searching and it 99% fulfilled what I needed. If you could lower the Hotspot Sensitivity minimum to 1px and Coolspot Sensitivity to 2px, it would be perfect.

Also, I'm not sure if it caused your program or Windows, but when I'm searching for something in Win Start, the taskbar is hidden and looks kinda weird as the Start is "floating".

Hello pvpbender,

I will definitely look into adding per pixel sensitivity detection. But, as I've explained previously, I am quite busy right now so I don't know when I can implement it.

The floating start menu is a byproduct of the fact that the taskbar and start menu are two different windows objects. I chose to go for less cpu usage by my app rather than having to constantly check for the presence of the taskbar AND the start menu which could affect the performance of other programs/games negatively.

Absolutely Perfect And Essential Program!

Hey jykelly, I just wanted to let you know I've donated towards the development of the program. I've been using it for windows 10, and I can say it works well, except sometimes the taskbar won't show at all, and the delay can be a bit long (which isn't too bad), even with all Windows Animations turned off. Thanks so much for your work.

Hi AlasShyBar, thanks for the donation and for your kind words. I haven't been able to test ShyBar on Windows 10 much unfortunately. Thanks for the input, those issues are now also on my to-do list once I can get back to coding.
