Hiding taskbar when window maximised

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It is possible to hide the taskbar when a window is maximised, but to show the taskbar when on the desktop? To clarify, I don't mean using F11 or turning on auto-hide to do this, rather the window automatically be over the taskbar when it is maximised. I am more than happy with registry edits, or installing modifications etc. to achieve this if its not possible with a simple settings change (tho I don't think it is as I've looked extensively).

 

Thanks

You want a janky solution?

Use Taran's magical Auto-hotkey software/AutoIT so that whenever you maximise a window an obscure hotkey will be pressed.

Then, that obscure hotkey will trigger TaskBar Hider.

Yes I understand the concept is the same as fullscreen, but for example fullscreening Chrome will hide the open tabs, url and bookmarks bar - I want all these to still be displayed.

 

I'll definitely take a look into that janky solution aha thanks man!

You know you could have found this stuff with just a simple google search right?

You should  take a look through your chrome flags, there's plenty of good stuff there that you want to enable.

I don't want this just for Chrome, I want it system wide for every window.

 

I'm well aware of Googling, and I have extensively hence why I'm posting here.
