RE: taskbar autohide problem

Specs: win xp pro, p2.36/512 ddr

I have seen posts on many forums about being unable to autohide the taskbar even when the "hide" button is selected. This is what I have found and seems to work.
To enable autohide:
HKEY_Current_user\Software\Microsoft\Windows\current Version\Explorer
"enableAutoTray"=dword:00000001

To disable autohide.
HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion/Explorer
"EnableAutoTray"=dword=0000000

Manual Edit;
You may have to create a DWORD value in that key named;
"EnableAutoTray" and set the value to 1 or 0.
In the above a 1 will enable autohide and a 0 will disable autohide.

Sometimes opening task manager and stopping explorer and restarting it will fix the autohide feature.
