    Hide pinned and running programs on taskbar.


    Hi, guys.
    I'm new here and this is my first thread.

    As the title said, how do I hide (not remove) pinned and running programs on taskbar?
    And appears when I hover on start button?

    I just want my desktop a bit cleaner but easy to access my favorite programs.

    I've googled for more than 3 hours and found nothing as I expected.

    Thanks ...

    Hello and welcome!

    You could try out the "Auto-hide the taskbar" option in the Taskbar properties (right-click on the taskbar to access these).

    I know about the hiding taskbar.
    But, I don't want to completely hide the taskbar. I want the taskbar keep showing.

    Now what do you want - you want to hide it or you don't want to hide it. As far as I know there is no half-hide.

    As I said.
    Just hide the programs pinned on the task bar. Not hide the taskbar.

    OK, I understand. But I do not know how to do that.

    It was suggested to solve this with virtual desktops. I never used that, but it sounds OK if you want to go thru the trouble.

    You could use a program such as "TrayIt" that will put the running program's icon in the system tray.

    (I didn't understand what you meant by "appears when I hover on start button" though)
