Autohide Taskbar regedit


Recommended Posts

According to this article there's no registry entry for this.

I noticed switching this option changes the following bold bytes in the registry:

[HKEY_USERS\S-x-x-xx-xxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxx-xxxx\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\Components\0]"Position"=hex:2c,00,00,00,4b,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,b5,04,00,00,e2,03,00,00,00,\


between e2,03 and 00,04 (the x's in the key are numbers, but differ from user to user). However setting these values manually doesn't seem to have any effect. Not in this user key and not in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER key... So I'm afraid the article is correct :(
