Hide Taskbar

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This tiny freeware program claims to hide and control the taskbar, but that didn't prove to be the case when we put it to the test. Hide Taskbar requires no installation; just unzip the executable file to use it. The program is accessible from the system tray. Strangely, you won't find any special features or customization pleasantries since the Settings screen is empty. What's more, it never managed to conceal the taskbar when we moved the mouse cursor away. It wasn't until we enabled Windows' auto-hide taskbar that the program surprisingly "worked," putting the taskbar out of sight. All things considered, if you're looking for a tool to hide your taskbar, you might want to skip Hide Taskbar and continue searching.
