How to make the task bar auto hide in Windows
- Click the right button on a blank area of the task bar
- Select Properties
- Select Autohide
- Click OK
This will make the task bar slide off the screen when the cursor moves away from it, and it will slide back on when the cursor is moved near it again.
The same can be done for the MS Office task bar. The “sliding” effect is nice, and can free up some desktop space.
