What advantages does this have over the current method, which is using ahk_class ShellTrayWnd?

Ok, sorry, hadn't seen that one...

Enable/disable is nice though... :wink:

Can you clarify what you mean by enabling/disabling?

This command line tool allow to remove the taskbar in any situation, whatever the actual taskbar configuration is (autohide active or not)!

With the autohotkey command described above, it is not working when the taskbar is set in autohide mode.

The tool can!

Just run it twice: one with h option (hide) and one time with the d option (disable). The hide option will hide the taskbar when not in autohide mode (already displayed on the screen) and the disable option will make it impossible to show anymore if you bring the mouse to the screen edge in autohide mode

To remove the taskbar
RunWait "Tb.exe" h,"C:\",Hide
RunWait "Tb.exe" d,"C:\",Hide


To make the taskbar appear again
RunWait "Tb.exe" s,"C:\",Hide
RunWait "Tb.exe" e,"C:\",Hide

And now you have a real working taskbar killer
