    No, adding it to startup does not work.

    Hi

    I don't have that on my task bar?

    My properties are set to Always Combine Hide Labels.

    All I see, on mine is the little magnifying glass icon.

    When I click on that it opens a search window?





    If you are having problems with having enough space for all of your icons check out Rocketdock.
    It works great.

    The WinTHButtonHider application works okay, just one small glitch; I have to click on the 2nd taskbar to make the placeholders disappear.

    UPDATE: If I turn off the other monitor it works flawlessly.

    It should if you keep the folder in your system directory, create a shortcut of the Hider.exe, (not the host one), from the bin folder and paste it in the Startup folder.

    Hmmm......, what happens, do you get an error, or it just doesn't execute, or what?

    According to your other post, (https://www.tenforums.com/general-dis...tml#post151294 ), you may need to Unblock the file or lessen your UAC.

    This is really grinding my gears

    Mike, I don`t think you understand, I have IE pinned to my taskbar, but you can`t see it because it`s hidden behind the search and task view icons. If I move the Chrome icon to the left, you`ll see the IE icon but then the Chrome icon is hidden behind them.

    Ahh Heck, figured it out. It`s because I replaced the start button using Classic Shell. Uncheck it and it`s perfect, except for the ugly window start button.

    Gears ungrinded, well kinda
