How to remove a taskbar?

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm currently working on transforming a window 7 into kiosk mode and want to know how to hide the taskbar. I have tried auto-hid but if user move the mouse over the taskbar will appear again so is there anyway to hide the taskbar permenantly?

    And also, if anyone knows how to change window 7 into kiosk mode.

    Thanks in advance. ((:

    1.    Click on Start-> type in regedit and open registry editor.

    2.    Navigate to the following location:

         HKEY_Current_user\Software\Microsoft\Windows\current Version\Explorer

        "enableAutoTray"=dword:00000001

    3.    Close regedit.

     

    Note: you’d better backup the registry before you want to change it.

     

    And you need to restart PC after modify the registry.

     we have 2 ways to hide Windows 7 Taskbar : 

         1- Right Click on taskbar --> Properties ---> Taskbar ---> select auto hide-taskbar---> ok

         2- By Registry Editor :

            REGEDIT

    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoSetTaskbar"=dword:00000001
    "NoTrayItemsDisplay"=dword:00000001
    "HideClock"=dword:00000001
    "NoToolbarsOnTaskbar"=dword:00000001
    "NoTrayContextMenu"=dword:00000001
    "NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000

    how about the above? Do i have to add anything to it? Or i have to clear the things inside as there is

    "Settings"=dword: 28 00 00 00 FF FF FF FF 0A 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 3E 00 00 00 28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 D8 03 00 00 00 05 00 00 00 04 00 00

    As for :[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

    i have already add in all those settings but the taskbar is still there.
