How to Automatically Hide the Taskbar in Windows 11

By default, the taskbar is always visible. However, you can set it to hide automatically, and here’s how you do it:

Steps

Right-click the taskbar blank area and then click Taskbar settings.

Expand the “Taskbar behaviors” on the right.

Beneath the Taskbar alignment, you can see the Automatically hide the taskbar. Select it.

That’s all. As you can see, the taskbar isn’t visible.

If you want to see the taskbar, move the cursor to the bottom of the screen or press the Windows and T keys simultaneously.

When you move the cursor away from the taskbar, the taskbar will automatically disappear.

Note: You can revert at any time by following the steps above and unselect instead of selecting .
