[request] Taskbar Displayed Only On <Win> Keypress

(1/6) > >>

I would like the Taskbar to autohide and not popup when the mouse cursor goes to the bottom of the screen. I would like the Taskbar to popup when I hold down the <Win> key. IOW, I don't want <Win> to activate the Start Menu like it does by default.


* Windows Taskbar is hidden by default.
* Moving the mouse cursor to the edge of the screen doesn't activate the taskbar.
* Balloons from the Taskbar Notification Area popup as normal.
* Pressing, and holding, the <Win> key brings up the Taskbar.
* Releasing the <Win> key autohides the Taskbar.

I think that should be possible with ""

 :) Try PushToShow!

PushToShow - Completely hides the taskbar until the Windows key is pushed.

You'll find the downloads and more info at 1 Hour Software by Skrommel.


I was looking for an existing application that did this and Mr. AutoHotkey himself shows up like it's the Make A Wish Foundation or something and POOF!! I get a custom built app.  :greenclp:

Thank you skrommel.

What setting in the code needs to be modified to allow this to work if the taskbar is docked to the left, right, or top of the screen?
