Taskbar hide/ reveal and windows saver off/ on scripts

Recommended Posts



Found the following on the forum:


ControlHide('classname=Shell_TrayWnd', '', '')
ControlShow('classname=Shell_TrayWnd', '', '')

A. Taskbar

1. The hide script hides the taskbar completely and I wish to access it by hovering the mouse at the bottom of the screen.

2. The hide scripts doesn't hide the start menu button in the corner.

3. New windows do not expand to the bottom of the screen but only till the taskbar's border.


B. Screen saver

I wish to use a script that stops its action/ activates its action.


Thanks in advance

Windows 7 Home Premium, x64

Are you aware that there is a setting to do that in the taskbar properties?

LOL (auto-hide the taskbar)

Yup...I'm completely aware of it lol.

I use a batch file that sets the computer ready for a certain software.

Since that software uses other softwares at the same time instead of clicking 1-5 and setting everything up manually I just double click once and everything is ready for the main software to operate.

The same when it shuts down...one tiny double click and poof...it's all gone.

So...I would appreciate some help with these two items (taskbar and screen saver).
