Taskbar Eliminator

Editors' Review

by   / October 15, 2009

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.
