    ShellWin


    ShellWin is a Tool designed to partially hide the Taskbar except the Start Button allowing you to keep the Start-button visible while running applications at full screen, it also acts like a Window Manger with a Run-box.

    Hide: Hides the Taskbar.
    Show: Shows the TaskBar.

    The last item the ComboBox is dual-purpose, It lists open applications and when you select an item it un-minimizes the window and brings it to the foreground and also doubles as a run-box, by entering something such as CMD and pressing enter it will execute the application.

    Here's what your desktop will look like with the Taskbar hidden while retaining the StartButton

    Here's what your desktop will look like when you maximize any application

    Its also possible to hide other specific parts of the TaskBar like Notification Tray, Ill make that possible in the next version

    Yeah I like that.

    Although not a problem, if you have say, your browser open and maximized, and you hide, you have to either drag and snap or restore down, then Maximize to get it to fully maximize to the bottom of the screen.

    Maybe suggestion for another version, beside having the just start button when you hide, maybe open applications buttons could show as well. At least ones that are pinned to the taskbar already.

    Might want to check out why Symantec and Norman (not Norton) flag it as suspicious. Probably just on their part, but it might scare away someone from using it.

    Ive noticed that, Im looking to see if theres a notification I can send to let all open applications know the taskbar has shifted and have them auto-resize like when you change the taskbar location.

    They do? Can you send me a screenshot or paste the message?

    LOL, Symantec detects "Suspicious.Insight"

    You can use Reflector to see the source code of every executable Ive developed so god knows what its detecting, It seems NAV/Symantec desktop versions dont show anything though

    up to date (today) definitions. I'm not worried about it, just an FP on their part. Just something to investigate maybe.

    Looks like im not the only one: VirusTotal - Free Online Virus and Malware Scan - Statistics , "Suspicious.Insight" has 37, 723 detections in the last 24h

    I did find the two causes of the FP though: Fewer than 100 uses/scans and Built less than a week ago

    hmm, so maybe every new application/executable is flagged as something by them since it's an unknown entity.
