Windows 10 allows users on tablets to switch between desktop mode and tablet mode. While there is a way to auto-hide that taskbar in desktop mode by going through a couple of menus, there's no way Windows 10 allows users to do the same thing in tablet mode, which has been a sore subject for many people. Now, a small company called Nibbler Apps has launched a product, Auto-Hide Taskbar, that fixes this issue.
Once the app is downloaded and installed, users can quickly click on it in Windows 10's notifications area. Then they have the choice of whether or not to hide the taskbar for both tablet mode and desktop mode in Windows 10 and can even make it auto. At least until (or if) Microsoft adds the feature, this may be your best bet to improve the tablet mode experience in Windows 10.
The app comes with a free trial, but the full version costs $1.35. If you do try or buy the app, let us know what you think about Auto-Hide Taskbar in the comments!
