Most users see the Windows 11 taskbar on their Computer every day. It is possible that most users are not aware that the taskbar can hide, and others prefer a more static interface.
Hide the taskbar to make room for some extra space on your desktop that application windows may use. If you prefer your desktop tidy, it may also look better.
Windows 11 has an option that will hide the taskbar automatically. It will disappear to the edges of the screen when taskbar activities stop, and if it loses focus, at that moment, taskbar visibility is not required.
Windows 11 features many visual improvements and redesigns that make it more modern and cohesive. The downside to the improved appearance is that you will need to learn to find different settings in Windows 11, and of course, if you are still using Windows 10, I strongly recommend you upgrade to Microsoft Windows 11.
Microsoft’s new OS has a brand new settings app that features repositioned sections and new design elements, and updated logic. This radical change could cause issues for regular users when trying to find popular settings. This article will explain how to disable or enable taskbar auto-hide on Windows 11.

Windows 10 makes it easy to enable the taskbar auto-hide feature, and it takes only two clicks. Just right-click on the top of the Taskbar and go to Taskbar Settings. Then enable the automatically hide taskbar option.
