Here is how to gain some screen space by “auto hiding” the Windows 10 Taskbar…

If you didn’t know, the “taskbar” is the bar that stretches across the bottom of your Windows 10 screen. It is typically visible, no matter where you are in Windows; but did you know you can make the taskbar “auto hide” itself? In other words, if you are not using it, the taskbar will drop down out of view, but if you want to make it re-appear you simply move your mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen and the taskbar will reappear. I currently have all of my PC’s to auto hide the taskbar to give me that extra screen space or view.

To activate “auto hide” in Windows 10″:

  1. Place your mouse pointer in a blank area of the taskbar and right mouse click.
  2. When the menu appears, click on “Taskbar settings” and the “Taskbar” settings window will appear.
  3. Toggle the switch “on” for “Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode”, then simply close the Window (and the “Taskbar” should now auto hide).
