    Shortcut key to raise/lower taskbar


    Is there is a key press that toggles the appearance of the taskbar without minimizing all open windows? WinKey behavior would be perfect if it were not for the 'Show Desktop' side-effect.
    It is important too that the taskbar not respond to the mouse -- that it appears only when requested by the key. The autohide feature is nice but for my usage it is far too responsive to the mouse hover.
    Thanks

    Hi, you could explore creating a very small Autohotkey script (free).

    This is ideal for defining hotkeys, as well as much more.

    Results if you search thus:
    autohotkey hide show taskbar

    Old example - may still be valid:
