    Windows 7 Taskbar Auto Hide feature is not working properly

    From properties of the Taskbar, I checked the checkbox of “Auto Hide the Taskbar” and it worked for a while but after some hours (4 or 5 ) it stopped working means the Taskbar remain fixed. I checked the properties and it was still showing that the “Auto Hide the Taskbar” feature was enabled. What can be the reason for this error?

    Re: Windows 7 Taskbar Auto Hide feature is not working properly

    dear


    a) What do you exactly mean by “auto hide bar not working properly”? Are you not able to hide the task bar or what?
    Method 1:
    Check whether there are any active processes running on the system. If there are any such applications or programs close them and check whether auto hide works or not.
    Method 2:
    Disable the notification icons and check. Check the article mentioned below.
    Change how icons appear in the notification area of the taskbar
    Method 3:
    Check with a new user account. Follow the steps mentioned below to create a new user account.
    To create a new profile, you must first create a new user account. When the account is created, a profile will also be created.
    Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking User Accounts and Family Safety (or clicking User Accounts, if you are connected to a network domain) and then clicking User Accounts.
    Click Manage another account.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    Click Create a new account.
    Type the name you want to give the user account, click an account type and then click Create Account.

    Hope this information is helpful.
    Thank you and Regards.

    If your taskbar auto hide freature is not working properly.
    Then you should to scan your PC with good anti-virus .
    And if you window is trial verison then install a full version of window .
    So your problem will solve.

    Hi
    Everything you do in your computer has an entry in the registry, and possibly the registry value has due to some reason changed.
    you can edit registry by typing REGEDIT at the command prompt. but i`ll tell you to refrain from that as if you are not qualified enough you may spoil the whole of windows from running .
    Insted do the thing you have done, again. clicking on taskbar, properties, unselect auto hide.
    get back to beginning screen of windows.
    Again click taskbar and so on to "auto hide the taskbar " and get back.
    reboot.
    Possibly this time it will be done.
    Thank you.

    Hello

    Restart your system and try again if it works or not.

    Else install windows 7 again, do a format just the drive in which windows is installed.

    Try doing a full computer scan for viruses .

    Thank you

    Hi Friend ,

    Check may be because of one of these issues your task bar auto hide is not working

    - Scan you full system with a good antivirus software

    - May be icons present in the task bar running a process
    Go to task manager and end process of all the icons present in task bar

    - If some notification pop up than also task bar didn't hide

    - Reboot your PC and check if problem is solved

    THANKS!!
