Editors' Review

+

Taskbar Eliminator is a very basic program that allows users to quickly hide and unhide their Taskbar. The program works fine, but it's made to do only one thing, and it's not very intuitive the first time out.

The program's interface is sparse, and even worse, there's no way to know how to access it without reading the publisher's description. We find this a pretty major failing; a program should at least be able to explain for itself how it should be accessed. Instead, the program hid our Taskbar immediately upon extraction, leaving us scrambling for the publisher's description to find out how to control it. It turns out that the program is controlled with simple keyboard shortcuts, which is nice. The program's interface is practically useless, with buttons for hiding and unhiding the Taskbar and allowing users to determine whether they want to the program to start with Windows. That's really all there is to it; there's no Help file or other features or options. Although the program was easy to use and worked just fine once we figured it out, we were really disappointed by how unintuitive it was to start with.

Taskbar Eliminator is free. It comes as a ZIP file and runs after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program with reservations; it functions well but lacks features, and is not user-friendly to start.

"Gets the job done!"

August 13, 2013  |  By Dylan_LeBlanc

 |  Version: Taskbar Eliminator 2.9

Pros

Gets rid of the taskbar, which is a must have for anyone really wanting to customize their desktop experience

Cons

Taskbar pulls up on its own if you plug in or remove an audio device.

A simple alt+T will get rid of it, but sometimes it feels like a needless hassle.
I'm sure a work around can be found, and I'll update if I do.

Summary

Does exactly what it says it does.
Nothing more.
Nothing less.

"Seems To Work, But Can't Uninstall It"

January 09, 2013  |  By asfhgwt

 |  Version: Taskbar Eliminator 2.9

Pros

Seems to work. However, if I exit the utility, the Start Button on the taskbar disappears!

Cons

Can't find a way to uninstall it, and support from the publisher is WORTHLESS!

Summary

If I could go back in time, I wouldn't install it.

"Works as advertised"

August 26, 2011  |  By cueball119

 |  Version: Taskbar Eliminator 2.9

Pros

Installed and worked smoothly. Using a toggle is a little awkward but on the other hand, the task bar does not keep popping up each time the mouse comes near.

Cons

A little difficult to discover the CTRL-T toggles. Although it claims to load at reboot, I have to run it manually.

Summary

This is the only program I have found that does this function and I use it continually. Thanks.

"Works Great in Windows 7"

September 27, 2010  |  By seabreeze968

 |  Version: Taskbar Eliminator 2.9

Pros

**Taskbar is GONE!
--No longer covers my work when another program or message is received.

--STAYS HIDDEN!

--ALT T key allows the taskbar to reappear or disappear!

Cons

I like this product... Simple & easy to use...

Summary

Finally others do not see my incoming message lights from yahoo im or checkers...

Taskbar No Longer pops up over my side screen
and refuses to leave until I click on the program.

This has eliminated a continually frustrating nuisance.

Good Job!!

"Close but no cigar for Windows 7"

November 02, 2009  |  By sandaili

 |  Version: Taskbar Eliminator 2.4

Pros

Hides the taskbar as long as you don't have an alert.

Cons

It hides the taskbar, until a window alert happens, in Windows 7. Then the Orb drops down, unhidden, while the rest does remain hidden. Unusable for my purposes, then.

Summary

Sadly it doesn't work correctly in Windows 7.
