Hide taskbar leaves an edge

Question: Hide taskbar leaves an edge

Hi,

I've enabled the auto-hide taskbar in Windows 7, but when the taskbar is hidden, the very top of the taskbar is still visible, leaving an edge.


Is there a fix?

Preferred Solution: Hide taskbar leaves an edge

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Hide taskbar leaves an edge

My guess is: this is a video driver issue.

You can try to...
...re-install the same version that you have now
...install a newer version - if available
...install an older version - if available

It would help us to help you if you would fill in your system specs.

Hi, a friend of mine requested that I fix his taskbar so of course I've come to you all for help and suggestions.

He says that during all games *that should be full screen* the taskbar will not disappear. It stays in view *and usable* which of course makes the games impossible to play.

He has windows xp pro and I have no clue how to fix this, thanks for your help!
 

Answer:(Solved) Taskbar never leaves!

Did he accidentaly set it to not autohide? Just a sugest.

I have Windows10 with dual monitors. When I start Windows the taskbar on Monitor 2 is visible and won't move. If I turn Cortana on and off it resumes auto-hiding but I have to do this every time I start Windows 10.

Any ideas?

Answer:Auto-Hide doesn't hide taskbar

This behaviour has been happening for a long time now. I don't think MS are giving it much priority at the moment. The search on & off method seems to be the main workaround everyone is using.

Folks,

Using Edge, if I click the "+", open a new tab, then drag that tab out to start a new browser window everything seems fine.

I can open more and more tabs on that "daughter" window. If I then choose "close all tabs", they all go away...but the edge browser window stays open. Clicking the "X" in the upper right does nothing, as does the right-click on the task-bar. The "mother" window still works. It's the "daughter" window, devoid of any tabs, which is unresponsive.

I need to ctl-alt-del and close BOTH (all) edge browser windows (totally shut down edge) to make the blank edge window disappear.

This is repeatable.

Hello,

Certain icons always show up in my taskbar. I go to properties and then customize and mark them as always hide but next time I reboot their back. There are things like my un-interruptible power supply which I care about for 10 minutes during the year and things that I know are always running such as my spyware and virus protection.

Does anyone know a place in the registry where it is possible to mark these things always hide and have it stick? I am tired of the clutter.

Thank you

Using Windows 7 64-bit on a multiple monitor extended desktop: I've set my taskbar to auto-hide. I'm not sure which application is causing this to happen, but I've managed to get Windows to not display the task bar when I mouse over the bottom of the screen when the currently focused application is maximized. If I normalize the application, I can get the task bar to un-hide. I had four apps open this morning when it happened again - Firefox, Thunderbird, Windows Explorer, and Visual Studio 2008. I suspect that Visual Studio is somehow the culprit, but it's kind of difficult to quantify. Once the task bar decides that it doesn't have to un-hide itself, only a reboot fixes the issue. I saw this behavior in in the release candidate as well.

Question: Taskbar won't hide

My task bar is set to hide, but won't. I think I've figured out what causes it, but not how to fix. It's been going on for some time and usually rebooting gave a temporary solution. I could never figure out what caused it ; it would just all of a sudden not hide. Well I just did a scan using my HP OfficeJet Pro 6810 and now the task bar is stuck open again.
I haven't tried yet, but it could also happen using the HP 6810 to print as well. So I guess HP is taking control of the task bar.

Answer:Taskbar won't hide

Do they show an icon in the system tray? Can the option be set to not show a tray icon? I am thinking maybe it disables AutoHide because it wants you to see the tray icon. Just guessing.

I know this question has come up before and there are the typical cryptic responses by those that seem to have arthritis of the finger or want to appear to want to dismiss us ignorant people that are seeking an answer. Maybe I should be more forgiving as it has been stated often that we in the USA are often lacking in writing skills or lack command of the language.

In any case, I would like to know why my task bar will not hide without rebooting. This apparently occurs from time to time and simply pulling up "properties" and "applying" does not solve the problem.

I would like an answer that can be understood by others who have the same problem without having to start a thread and can go to the "search" function and find the answer. I can understand that there will be a few that will take the attitude that I should be grateful for whatever is offered and that I am being over demanding. Well I should have been able to Google this question and to find an answer to this common question. Instead, I find short cryptic and often irrelevant remarks that assume that we should have already known the answer.

The question: Why won't my task bar hide without rebooting and how do I fix it?

I've got the taskbar set to autohide, but sometimes it won't. Sometimes when this happens one of the icons in the taskbar has a yellowish background instead of blue, and it's this application which is requesting attention - once I've opened this window and done whatever it's asking me to do, the taskbar will autohide again. But often none of the icons is highlighted. If I've got 20 or 30 windows open, how am I supposed to find out which one is stopping the taskbar from autohiding? If it won't autohide, it's normally covering the horizontal scroll bar or some other important feature of the window I'm trying to use, so them I have to make the window of this application smaller. Eventually it seems that autohide is more hassle than it's worth - I might as well have the b*** taksbar there all the time.

Any ideas on how to overcome this annoyance?

Thanks - Rowan

If you've updated to the new "Creators Update" in Windows 10, you may have noticed the Edge button in IE11 - it's a way for Microsoft to push users over to the new browser (as IE11 is the end of the line).

You can remove it by running "regedit" and navigating to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

If that path doesn't exist, you may need to manually create the last subkeys (Internet Explorer and Main).

Then, change the value of "HideNewEdgeButton" from 0 to 1. If this value doesn't exist, create a new DWORD(32Bit) called HideNewEdgeButton and give it a value of 1.

You may need to restart your PC for this change to take effect.

You should only make these changes if you're familiar with the registry editor - as you could break things if it goes wrong.

Hi, I'm using Build TH1 10240 with all updates (just checked before I posted this to be sure) dual booting W7 and W10 with no known problems other than the taskbar issue.

The taskbar hides and appears fine when nothing is up but the desktop, or the settings window and other items from the computer but doesn't hide when a have IE up, I'm using IE11, just don't care much for Edge yet, maybe as time goes by I'll start using it more.

Anytime I have IE up the taskbar stays visible and will not hide, I went to properties to reset it, tried this a few times, uncheck the box>apply, then check the box>apply, after I click apply the taskbar momentarily hides and immediately pops back into view.

I know others (Jimbo) were having an issue with this on earlier builds. It didn't happen every time for me, just every once in awhile but on 10240 it's every time.

Does anybody know of a fix or a workaround? It's not a huge thing but I've always hid the taskbar and would like to do it on W10 too. Snip of the properties window below:

Answer:"Hide Taskbar" option not hiding taskbar

Question: Taskbar auto-hide

Hello,
When I set some programs(I found 2 of such programs - Opera 10.50beta and Eclipse) to maximized screen, the task bar is no more accessible. It is set to be auto-hiding and always on top. Programs are not in full-screen mode(i.e. f11 doesn't help). Pressing windows key on keyboard is not the way I like it, plus these keys are usually locked to avoid pressing them by mistake (Logitech G15 keyboard). That happened at the first day of fresh install. Any ideas on how to fix it?(turning off auto-hiding helps, but I don't like it )

Same on netbook Acer Aspire One.

Answer:Taskbar auto-hide

I am having same problem. When Windows Media Center is maximized , I can not mouse down to bring up the hidden task bar. This happens on my desktop and on my netbook. I have Win7 Home Premium on both and both are up to date. With Windows Media Center I thought this might be a feature rather than a bug, TV without distractions for example. Not sure.

Then I noticed the same thing with Firefox 8 in full screen mode. Firefox is fine when maximized. The full screen mode I am referencing is the Firefox full screen mode.

I saw others having the same issue with Google Chrome as well as other programs.

I know all the work-a rounds, so please don't post those.

Is this a Windows 7 problem or is it the way programs are written? Maybe something to do with focus? Maybe hard-coding the height of a window and thus not allowing space for the mouse to bring focus to the task bar?

Don't know.

Any ideas?

I'm attempting to hide a taskbar on a kiosk.

There are several issues and possible solutions I have attempted, with no luck. So, I would like to address here to see maybe if I'm missing a step or another option.

First off, I'm unable to install any 3rd party software/freeware (option is not available)

1. Went to Control Panel - Taskbar and Start Menu Properties - the only tab available to me is the "Start Menu tab". No way to Auto hide...
2. Found this site - Auto Hide Taskbar in Windows 8 / 7 which led me to the registry editor, (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2)but after troubleshooting and understanding the key value under settings (once I went to a working taskbar to test), I still am unable to remove or hide the taskbar. No change

I changed my direction to see if I could find a way to enable the right click on the task bar -
1. Attempted to see if I could right click the taskbar and I was unsuccessful. I did go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/26315 and it leads me back to the Taskbar and Start menu, but The Advance Tab is missing, so I'm unable to complete.
2. Found a website that seemed very promising https://thecustomizewindows.com/2011...-in-windows-7/ so I followed the instructions and naturally my kiosk is stubborn and I was unsuccessful. I did notice though that when I performed a reboot that my changes reverted.

Any ideas will be appreciated! Thanks

This issue occurs when the following .inf files contain an incorrect source media description:

To work around this issue, you must change the source media description in both the Fp40ext.inf and Ims.inf files. To do this, use the following procedures.

Back up the Fp40ext.inf and Ims.inf files
1. In Windows Explorer, click Folder options on the Tools menu.

3. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show all files and folders.
4. Open the C:\Windows\Inf folder.
5. Click the Fp40ext.inf file, click Edit, and then click Copy.
6. On the Edit menu, click Paste. This creates a copy of the Fp40ext.inf file that is named Copy of Fp40ext.inf.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the Ims.inf file.

1. Open the Fp40ext.inf file in Notepad. The Fp40ext.inf file is located in the C:\Windows\inf folder.

I have my taskbar set to hide. When I move my mouse to the edge of the screen, it will pop out sometimes and sometimes it is necessary for me to size-down the program that fills the screen, move the mouse to the edge of the screen again and it pops out but goes behind the program that partially fills the screen.

This has me believing the taskbar pops out all the time but behind whatever maximized program is on the screen. This behavior is not restricted to one maximized program and is sporadic.

Hey.

I was wondering... Is it possible to completely hide the task bar? So it is never visible at all (unless you hit the Start button to open the start menu, for example)?

This is for HTPC use. I'm using an application called MediaPortal which runs in fullscreen and hides the task bar, so it's fine while MediaPortal is running. But whenever I launch external applications or start/shut down the computer, the taskbar is visible for a few seconds and I'd like to avoid that (geeky I know :P)...

So... is it possible?

Thanks in advance!

Question: Taskbar Auto hide

Auto hide not working for XP task bar. It works once but as soon as you hover the mouse over it, it stays up on the desktop

Answer:Taskbar Auto hide

Hi donchampo, welcome to TSF

Locate your Prefetch folder:
C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\.

(Back up the entire folder in another location just in case anything goes wrong).

Delete the entire contents of the original folder located as described above.

Now reboot windows, this will force WinXP to re-build the folder and so fix the autohide bug.

Hi here,
I would like to know if somebody know a script or registry which can helps me to hide IE icon on the taksbar and start menu?
Thanks for your feddback.

Answer:Hide IE icon on taskbar

You can "unpin" any icon from the Taskbar (right-click on it, unpin). You can also simply delete any icon in the Start menu.

However, once you start a program, an icon typically appears in the taskbar. If that's what you want to hide, then perhaps someone else can help you, I don't know how to do that.

There is nothing special about the IE, its icons work just as any other program's icons.

I'v e been asked to implement a database in a warehouse with multiple users.  All I am giving them is a mouse, screen and PC.  They will have no keyboard.  All is working fine.The PC will be permanently logged on so work on one sign-on.Because the user account has access to a network drive I want them to not be able to physically access it (but need the access  for the database).  My question then is how can I disable (or permamently hide) the taskbar and start button when this user logs in.Also is it possible to disable the right mouse button over the desktop?Ideally, I'd like all this to be done when the PC is logged and a batch file is run to do this action, however all suggestions would be gratefully received.

Answer:Hide or disable taskbar

So I'm guessing you want the users to access/modify the database only and not see or access the other files on the network drive? Is this why you are wanting to hide the taskbar and start button? My computer also?Registry hack maybe?? try http://www.pctools.com/guides/registry/id/42/

Hi,

I use my PC only for entertainment - gaming and watching TV shows and movies. That means that I only use the big screen, which is a plasma, and as you're probably aware, plasmas have the burn-in issue.

So I enabled the Auto-hide taskbar function, but it still shows a line at the bottom that's about 2 pixels in height, which is always on. I would like to get rid of it. How do I do that?

Thank you.

Answer:Is there a way to *completely* auto-hide the Taskbar?

I've never seen it possible. The line that shows is available to resize the Taskbar up if it doesn't unhide when moving the mouse over it. Have you checked for a setting for the Taskbar about "always on top" that could be unchecked so a program takes all the screen?

I use Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and have a problem with the taskbar. I changed the properties to auto-hide, but I experience problems with Google Chrome and Songbird (Maybe others too, I haven't tried yet). Normally, when I use Internet Explorer for instance, a small edge of the taskbar stays visible when it is hidden and the window is maximized. But not with Crome and Songbird, so I have to resize the window or hit the windows key to access the taskbar. I suspect it's either a bug in Windows 7 or in the other applications on how they size their window, so not ease to fix i fear . Any help on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance .

Answer:Problem with auto-hide taskbar

Hi and Welcome to SevenForums

As you say this will i thing be a difficult issue to solve

I would tend to blame the particular apps involved rather than the actual OS as the OS works with the vast majority of applications.

You could try reporting the problem to Google as Chrome is in Beta and the more feedback they get on any issues the more likely they are to be addressed. With the official release of Windows 7 imminent, it's not in Google's interest to have any problems with their browser

One thing to try is to change the app icon for another one to see if the issue is caused by a non standard icon size.

If you use the auto-hide option for the taskbar (in Properties) I'd like to know if you also have the taskbar ceasing to hide or reappear on some occasions...... after installing Windows 10? On only a very few occasions, has it refused to come out of hiding, but the non-hiding is somewhat more frequent. I have no idea what precipitates the freezing, but once it go into effect I generally have to restart Windows in order to get it functioning properly again.

The taskbar can interfere with my being able to operate some necessary buttons that are located under the taskbar when it's not hidden, such as the "send" button on my Yahoo mail compose page. Yes, I do know that I can move the taskbar to the other three sides of the screen, but I wanted to hear from other folks to find out if this is a Windows 10 related issue for them as well. I don't recall it ever happening when using previous versions of Windows.

Thanks for looking.....

I had to replace my hard drive, which meant a clean reinstallation of Windows 7 from reinstallation disks. Which also meant endless updates and "update operations". Somewhere in there, I set my taskbar to auto-hide, and for a while, that worked fine. After the latest round of automatic updates, however, my task bar will no longer auto-hide. The auto-hide box is checked. If I uncheck it, apply that, then check it and apply again, the bar will very briefly hide, there is some sort of flash - as if some window or something is displayed for a small fraction of a second - and the taskbar pops back up and stays.

Any suggestions as to what is wrong and what setting, if any, I can change to fix this?

Answer:Windows taskbar won't auto hide

Apparently this problem has been around for a while. According to this Microsoft forum thread, many times it can be the result of an older program or application sending a command to unhide the task bar so an application or program update (or some other message) can be viewed.

I'd start out by looking for application conflicts. Run a clean startup (AKA clean boot) and see if the problem goes away.

If that doesn't help you could try looking for damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

Personally, I think the best solution is to remove all the HP bloatware from your computer. You could do a clean reinstall (my recommendation) or try to clean up just the factory bloatware which many times prevents Windows 7 from working as it should (not quite as good as the clean reinstall.)

I did some poking around, and this thread comes close, but nothing listed there had any affect at all.

When I am running an app in a full-screen windowed, I can sometimes make it hide by Alt-tabbing to the program. (Even though the program was already in focus.)

Pretty much the rest of the time, it's always up. I've tried flipping it back and forth, and sometimes that will fix it for a few minutes, but no longer than that.

I'm running 10130, and this system was upgraded from Win7 somewhere when build numbers were in the upper 9k mark. I'm not interested in doing a complete wipe and re-install unless it is absolutely necessary for continued functionality of my system. It will take me way too long to put everything back.

Really this wouldn't be so much of a problem if it didn't cover the bottom of every application I run in a large window or maximized. With build 10130 though, it's gotten to the point where it just doesn't want to hide anymore, and I can't seem to find anyone else discussing the issue. Until they fix the issue with full-screen applications not rendering correctly, I kinda need this fixed.

Answer:Taskbar refuses to auto-hide

I've clean installed 10130 as a dual boot with W7, and always hid the task bar, worked fine on W7, XP, and W2000 before that. I set it to auto hide in W10 10130 and most times it will hide but others it just stays up.

With 10 TP it isn't consistent, I don't run 10 too much but am trying to use it more often to get used to it. I attribute anomalies like this to the fact it's still a Tech Preview, I'm pretty sure things like this will work every time in the RTM
