    I have a game which runs 4:3 windowed mode. But with a height of 1080 the taskbar is overlapping the window. Is there a way to make it automatically disappear when I have this specific window focused?

  2. how to effectively hide or disable the taskbar?

    Hi,



    Did you try the “Auto-hide the taskbar” option from Taskbar properties?



    If you have not tried it, I would suggest you to follow these steps and auto-hide the taskbar:

    • Right click on Taskbar.
    • Click on Properties
    • Check the box Auto-hide the taskbar.
    • Click on OK.


    Hope this information helps.

    BTW When you say "Remove the expanded icons on the taskbar" I assume you mean going to the Taskbar properties and under the "Combine taskbar buttons" dropdown box choosing "Always, hide labels"?
