    Cannot auto-hide taskbar for a longer time on Windows 7

    It is possible to change the properties and auto-hide the taskbar of my PC upgraded to Windows 7. But, the taskbar will remain hidden for a few seconds and then it will appear again. How can I overcome this situation?

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    Try changing the Notification Area setting as default and check if it helps.
    You can access these settings from the Control Panel > Notification Area Icons or by Right Click on the Taskbar, then Properties and Customize in Notification Area Box >Select restore default icon behavior.

    Thank you.

    Try this: Run the Task Manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC).Stop the Explorer process. If there are multiple explorers running, sort them by memory usage and stop the largest one. Alternatively, just stop them all. With task manager open, go to File > New Task (Run…) and type:C:\Windows\explorer.exe
    Now retry auto-hiding.
