You can enable auto-hide in Windows preferences. Right-click the taskbar and select "Settings" (or whatever the menu item is in English Windows).

Auto-hiding hides the taskbar even when you aren't running any program, though.

If the reason is due to selections/dragging/cropping along the bottom/top/left sides on the screen (and having the taskbar appear when doing so) then I'd recommend moving the taskbar to the left of the screen. Did it a long time ago and it both saves space and doesn't interfere with most of the common operations.

I also use with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker to make the vertical taskbar narrower than it normally can be. Truly superb utility for a number of reasons.

There is a special version of Taskbar Control released for Windows 10:

It is portable and works OK for me.

TrayEverything

In practice this hides windows minimized to the taskbar when "no tray icon for minimized windows" is selected. Password protection is available for 'Trayed' items.

This may not help with your needs, and might not work in compatibility mode with your OS.
