Taskbar, Hiding to Make Screens Deeper


The Windows Taskbar is a bar across the bottom of your screen listing all the programs you have running simultaneously. If your display mode is set too low (Diet Power supports resolutions as low as 800-by-600 pixels), the Taskbar can be a problem: it obscures the buttons at the bottom of Diet Power's dialogs.


To fix the problem, you must activate "Auto Hide," a Windows function that hides the Taskbar except when you drag the mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen. To activate Auto Hide:


1. Click the Start button in the lower-left corner of your screen.


2. Point to "Settings" and click "Taskbar." The Taskbar Properties dialog will open.


3. If the "Auto hide" choice is not already checked, check it.


4. Click the OK button.
