Hide Taskbar in Windows 10/8/7 with a hotkey

We are pleased to release Hide Taskbar.  While you can always use the Auto hide taskbar feature to hide the taskbar and make it appear only when you take your mouse pointer down to the bottom of the desktop, Hide Taskbar lets you hide only the taskbar, and not the Start Button, with a click.

Hide Taskbar with hotkey

Simply download and run the app. Use hotkeys Ctrl+Esc to hide or un-hide the taskbar.

And why would you require such a program? The reason could be well, you love a clean desktop and don’t want even a taskbar to mar your wallpaper or maybe you are working on something, and you want to suddenly hide all the other minimized windows or well it could be simply because you think it looks cool to hide and un-hide the taskbar.

You may also find this app of interest if you use a Dock like RocketDock.

This app does not hide the taskbar automatically on running it, but allows you to choose, using the hotkeys when to hide and un-hide! Moreover, Hide Taskbar leaves a very low memory footprint.

To have it run on every start-up, place its shortcut in the following folder:

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

And what gave us the idea to develop this portable freeware app? Simply because someone at TWC Forums put in request.
