    but isn't it possible to solve this issue with this bat?

    What do you suggest?

    I do NOT want to kinda uninstall the Action Center. I simply don't want to have it active when I unhide the task bar

    The Action Center icon will show on the taskbar by default. The setting in this tutorial is unrelated to it, but you can use the method in the tutorial below to only turn off the Action Center icon without disabling it.

    But remember I knew how to turned it off

    And indeed I do it

    BUT when I hide and then unhide with that .bat, the Action Centers gets turned on. That's my point. How can I avoid that. Is it not possible to add at the .bat a command not to do that?

    It appears that simply restarting explorer causes the Action Center icon to show again.

    The problem is that restarting explorer is required to manually turn on/off auto-hide taskbar instead of doing so in Settings.

    Process Monitor doesn't reveal any possible way to add to the .bat file to turn off the Action Center icon.

    Well, it depends on how badly you want the Action Center gone.

    Currently, the options I can think of is to either disable the Action Center, or turn on/off auto-hide taskbar via Settings instead.

    which are the consequences of disabling the Action Center?

    is it just a way to see things easily or is it really a disadvantage to disable it?

    It depends on if you use the Action Center. It's the main hub for all your notifications and quick actions.

    ok, so I'll keep it at the taskbar

    a price to pay for something more needed (hide-unhide taskbar)

    The Action Center can be pretty handy.
