"taskbar real toggle" The AutoHotKey script above in the best answer works fine. On my PC I combined it with http://www.itsamples.com/taskbar-hider.html (v1.2) This taskbar hiding application lets me choose the hotkey to hide the taskbar. I mapped the AutoHotKey-hotkey to Win+A and the TaskBar Hider to Win+Y. So now when I press Win+Y, Win+A the taskbar ...

It works as @Qwilson stated. In Powershell code: # Set the registy value Set-ItemProperty -Path HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced -Name TaskbarGlomLevel -Value 0 # Explorer will restart by itself by default, so we just need to stop it. Get-Process -Name explorer | Stop-Process

Don't allow me be the bearer of bad news. It seems the progress bar overlay is implemented by Firefox, so I doubt if you can disable on Windows. There seems to be no way to disable it on Firefox currently. However, according to an answer given to this same issue, a possible solution may be to edit certain files in the Firefox Download API that makes it ...

There is no way to re-enable it, but I found an excellent third party utility that does more or less exactly the same thing. It is called "true launch bar" and you can find it at http://www.truelaunchbar.com/. At the moment it costs $20 and there is a 30 day trial (without need for registration) so you can check if it works for you. After you install it, ...

7+ Taskbar Tweaker lets you patch Windows on the fly to always split grouped taskbar icons. You'll be able to switch directly to the window you want. That's not exactly what you wanted, but it's close (and even better, in my opinion). Why is it better than modifying Registry? Because it's not applying any changes permanently. You'll be able to safely ...

The article Fixing When the Windows Taskbar Refuses to Auto-Hide Correctly describes this problem as : When you’re using the auto-hide feature for the Windows taskbar, it will stay hidden until an application starts flashing the taskbar button, or there’s a notification balloon from a system tray icon. In the first case I can simply click on ...
