    Autohide taskbar after X seconds


    Just wanted to know whether it was possible to auto hide the Win10 taskbar after X number of seconds or minutes?

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Is it that you want to be able to control the specific time before it hides or do you just want it to hide?

    Hi. I want to control a specific timespan when it hides. E.g. I am using the taskbar, then I move my mouse away from the taskbar, and it auto-hides, after 60 seconds. (not auto hide immediately).

    That is what I thought and before I suggested our current tutorial I thought I would ask.

    I would think it is possible although I don't know specific key, maybe a registry guru will know. I searched Google, as I'm sure you did, with no hints found that it is something you can set.

    If you find please post back as I'm sure some else has the same question.
