    Is there a way to *completely* auto-hide the Taskbar?


    I use my PC only for entertainment - gaming and watching TV shows and movies. That means that I only use the big screen, which is a plasma, and as you're probably aware, plasmas have the burn-in issue.

    So I enabled the Auto-hide taskbar function, but it still shows a line at the bottom that's about 2 pixels in height, which is always on. I would like to get rid of it. How do I do that?

    Thank you.

    I've never seen it possible. The line that shows is available to resize the Taskbar up if it doesn't unhide when moving the mouse over it. Have you checked for a setting for the Taskbar about "always on top" that could be unchecked so a program takes all the screen?

    I sometimes use Kodi for entertainment purposes and I don't see the line on it. to minimize Kodi I use the slash key
    Also note I don't see a line when I autohide the taskbar

    You could use winareo tweaker or some such and make it completely transparent. That was my solution to getting rid of that amateurish looking piece of construction paper. It's still there of course but no see, I like!
