Hide apps, open windows & icons in Taskbar quickly with QuickHide

Yet another small app release! This one called QuickHide allows you to quickly hide all your open processes, files, programs, etc. from the Windows taskbar in a click. And why would you want to do that? Maybe you are doing something you shouldnt be doing, and your dad or Boss comes in … QuickHide could be a life saver – by letting you hide all in a click!

The app QuickHide.exe runs in the background. You can see it in the Task manager, but will not be displayed in the notification area.

  1. Handy Tool 😀
    but I just want to ask.
    It says from the post above that pressing END key closes the app or exits.
    what If Im editing some text or browsing a webpage and i wanted to scroll to the end of the page, and I use END key to go to the end of the page?
    does the QuickHide closes?
