    Information Tablet mode makes Windows easier and more intuitive to use with touch on devices like 2-in-1s, or when you don't want to use a keyboard and mouse.

    The taskbar is the long horizontal bar at the bottom of your desktop.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 14328, you can now choose to only auto-hide the taskbar in tablet mode. By hiding the taskbar, apps can take full advantage of the screen for an immersive and distraction-free experience.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off auto-hide the taskbar in tablet mode for your account in Windows 10.

    Note When the taskbar is hidden, swiping up from the bottom edge of the screen will make it appear. Doing so again will make it disappear.

    how to set taskbar to auto-hide in tablet mode?


    I wrote a little application to auto-hide the taskbar on my tablets and would like to share it with anyone looking for something similar. In particular, I want the taskbar to hide in landscape mode where vertical space is precious, but not in portrait mode where there is plenty of vertical space.


    Features of the application:



    • Auto-hide taskbar can be turned on or off independently for each combination of tablet mode and screen orientation.
    • Install for all users.
    • Free and open source.
    The application can be downloaded here:

    how to set taskbar to auto-hide in tablet mode?


    it doesn't work for me, it gives an error in all my computers.

    As for the Nibbler app it works ok but it still won't hide the taskbar from the start menu when in tablet mode, only when you open up an app or any other program (which is cool but not perfect)

    Although there is an existing paid-app that automatically hides the taskbar in tablet mode, I wished for more functionalities. I ended up writing a little application and would like to share it with anyone looking for something similar.

    Features:
    • Auto-hide taskbar can be turned on or off independently for each combination of tablet mode and screen orientation.
    • Install for all users.

  5. set taskbar to auto-hide in tablet mode?

    Hi Alan,



    We’re sorry that the option to Auto-hide Taskbar only in Tablet mode is not available. You can set it to auto-hide in both normal and table mode.



    I would suggest you use the Feedback app to leave your findings, comments and feedback related to this product.



    Members of the Windows Insider Program can provide feedback about the Windows 10 directly to our engineers by using the Windows Feedback app.



    Hope it helps.

    set taskbar to auto-hide in tablet mode?

    Hi! I'm finding the taskbar to be useful in desktop mode (where I tend to be using more apps), but to be a waste of space in tablet mode (where I want a full-screen experience). Is there any way to set the taskbar to auto-hide only
    in tablet mode?

    Thanks!

    Alan
