This new game called Windows 11 really makes me get more addicted everyday. Let's play again.
Check this site to get NirCmd, don't do if you already have it.
NirCmd

Now press WIN + R and run this command:
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 256

Hit enter or click OK, and your Taskbar is gone.
To bring it back, repeat the step, but change the command to:
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 255

I actually use WSCC for NirSoft, SysInternals, and a few other apps to use them on demand.

Main reason I do ( and I've registered recently as I've been using it for quite a while, although registration is not necessary) is that they have a snazzy updater built in for all the apps, allow you to segregate the apps by both parent site as well as architecture, allows you to use both X86 and X64 apps on demand, is fully portable, and so much more.
<End O/T>


I ran it on my console and it hid the taskbar - but only on my main monitor. Nice find!

Yes it is. Actually the trans command just increase and/or decrease the transparency level of any class. Unfortunately it can't detect multi monitors.
For people who love to play with "glass" thing, can modify the command, e.g:
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 256 or
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 0 to completely transparent, or
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 128 for 50% transparency, or
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 64 for 25% transparency.

Play the numbers from 0 to 255.

I might just do that - because then I wouldn't need TranslucentTB at all.

And since I already have all the NirSoft stuff thanks to WSCC, one more item I can uninstall and forget about.

Well, as soon as you can figure out what I need to edit for Maximized Windows, Start Menu Opened, Cortana/Search opened, and Timeline opened....

Yes it is. Actually the trans command just increase and/or decrease the transparency level of any class. Unfortunately it can't detect multi monitors.
For people who love to play with "glass" thing, can modify the command, e.g:
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 256 or
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 0 to completely transparent, or
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 128 for 50% transparency, or
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_TrayWnd 64 for 25% transparency.

Play the numbers from 0 to 255.
Just foundout how to make the transparency effect also works on other monitors (I'm using 3):
nircmd.exe win trans class Shell_SecondaryTrayWnd 64 (or replace 64 with any number from 0-255)
