  • Hi,
    Thanks for posting in Technet.
    Following steps are about how to auto hide windows 10's taskbar.
    1. Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar. (If you're in tablet mode, hold a finger on the taskbar.)
    2. Click taskbar settings.
    3. Toggle Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode to on. (You can also do the same for tablet mode.)

    Please feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

    Best Regards,

    Eric

    Whatever you try to achieve, re-design it and change your point of view.
     
    Search is an essentual feature in taskbar or startmenue and surely in
    explorer. "Finding" things is never ever a security risk.
     
    HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search
    "SearchboxTaskbarMode" = RegDWord
        0 = remove
        1 = magnifier icon
        2 = Textboxmode
     
    But, if you remove the taskbar, the search is still available in
    startmenue, simply by typing.
     
    You can not drive windows without explorer.exe, ok you can, you can
    replace the shell, but ... you do not want to.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for you reply.

    Search and Cortana are separated in window 10 version 1903.The search bar on the Taskbar is now just search and has nothing to do with Cortana. By default the search bar is expanded on the Taskbar and Cortana is just an icon. I have not found group policy for changing search bar as icon.

    The same discussion for your reference:

  • Hi Harsha,

    I have not found group policy for disable search bar  now.

    I suggest you to  post in script forum for more suggestion, maybe some script can realize this. 

    Best Regards,

    Eric
