Auto-Hide toolbar won't hide?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Geoff from LA, Mar 10, 2008.

  1. Some reason when I try to check my auto-hide toolbar in Vista, I get a window
    that says, "A toolbar is already hidden on this side of your screen. You can
    have only one auto-hide toolbar per side".

    Yet, I don't have another toolbar hideen, and I'm only using one screen...!?

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thanks in advanced...

  3. Tried that. Unfortunetly didn't work.

    I think its a bug, vista thinks I have another toolbar/taskbar hidden when I
    really don't. Is there a reg setting or something I can to reset its variabel?

  4. Open Task Manager and Regedit.

    <shift>+<ctrl>+<right-click> on the Start Menu & select 'Exit Explorer'

    In Regedit, navigate to:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop]

    delete the value named 'Toolbars'.

    In Task Manager, select 'File' -> 'New Task' -> type 'explorer' to restart
    the shell.

    If that doesn't do the trick, repeat deleting 'TaskbarWinXP' as well. (I
    can't test right now).

    For me a restart due to a crash (Closed wrong file, Bluescreen.) Went
    through the motions and after restart it seemed to work.
