Hide Taskbar is a simple utility to hide or un-hide only the Windows taskbar using hotkeys. This is triggered with Ctrl+Esc. Note that the Start button is still visible and Windows will not maximize to fill the screen in the space where the taskbar was located.

@Orca My impression is that this program is more about the aesthetic. As the description states:

"... visually hide or un-hide only the taskbar ..."

And on the homepage:

"... you love a clean desktop and don’t want even a taskbar to mar your wallpaper ..."

The screenshot itself also merely shows off the interplay between the start button and wallpaper.

Ah am I missing something, what does this do different than auto hide taskbar setting? Yeah I no it leaves the start button but is that really so helpful more than auto hide? Maybe its just me and I ain't tryin to be a hater I'm jus sayin.

Taskbar Control allows hiding/un-hiding the taskbar, including the 1 pixel line that "Auto Hide" displays, without changing a permanent system option. The program's default keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Alt+I.
