Hide Desktop w/ autohide taskbar
« on: December 07, 2012, 11:29:42 AM »
I am a little new to AHK but am learning.  I like this little snackware "Hide Desktop".  I would like my icons to also hide when my mouse is at a position on the screen such as the left edge (y=0).  All else works but since my taskbar is hidden I have to show my taskbar to hide my icons.  I want a blank screen when not in use.  A little snippet and I will insert the code myself.  :-)

You can probably modify the code in this article

The trick used is a one pixel wide window for each side of the screen. But if you only want to trigger on left edge you would only need one window. It detects mouse move and gets the position.
