    App for auto-hiding the taskbar based on tablet mode and orientation

    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.

    • 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.

    You can download the application here.

    Or you can just enable auto-hide in all situations, if you don't mind. To do so, right-click on the taskbar and select Properties. Then check the auto-hide box and click OK.
