    This is a rather specific issue, but I figure I'll try..

    My taskbar is on auto-hide mode. The problem is that if a program raises any prompt, its icon in the taskbar gets colored and from that point on, the taskbar no longer hides until I open that program.

    I use WinSCP, and it constantly does this. Is there a way to tell windows not to "unhide" the taskbar, even when there is a prompt? (I don't mind having it colored when I unhide the taskbar). Any other way you can think of to deal with this issue?

    Thanks



    EDIT: Just as I posted it happened again, so I figured I'd add a screenshot.. inception:

  2. program to hide the taskbar

    Hello,

    I Do not recommend you to use third party programs for that kind of things as it might cause system to dysfunction.

    I suggest you follow these steps

    Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar. (If you're in tablet mode, hold a finger on the taskbar.)

    Click taskbar settings.

    Toggle Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode to on. (You can also do the same for tablet mode.)

  3. 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.

  4. Taskbar won't hide when a program issues any prompt

    Taskbar Hiding Behind Programs

    Hello!

    My question concerns the taskbar auto-hide option. I recently found out about this option. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. Let me explain.

    It started with a few programs, such as Google Chrome and Word. When having these programs in full-screen, the taskbar would not pop up even though my mouse would hover over the bottom of the screen (where my taskbar is located). When I minimize these programs
    to one half of my screen (see picture below), I noticed that my taskbar would pop up, although it was hiding behind these programs. I have honestly no idea how to fix this.

    I have tried pressing F11, manually opening the taskbar by pressing the windows button or windows button + T so I can at least go to another program, but the problem of my taskbar hiding behind these programs and now other programs remains.

    Hope someone knows a solution to this problem!

    Thanks in advance!

    Notes:

    • I use Windows 10.
    • The taskbar auto-hide option works perfectly fine on my laptop, but for some reason not on my PC.
    • I have checked my PC for malware/virus, but it is all clean.
    • I have tried closing programs in my system tray as well, but no success.
