P3D - How to get rid of taskbar?

Recommended Posts

So I have this problem where the taskbar for Windows is always visible and the only way to make it now show is to have the option "Black out desktop" on but this blacks out my second monitor which I use for Skype and other things when flying. I also don't want to auto hide the taskbar as I still like it to be visible on my second monitor. Is there a way to have P3D run in fullscreen without the taskbar showing and my second monitor still be visible?


Thanks, Noah

With Auto-hide disabled - Don't 'maximize' the P3D window when it starts (i.e. the double overlay in the top right hand corner), just select Full Screen from the Views Menu (or press Alt+Enter). That should hide the Taskbar on your P3D Monitor but leave it active and visible on your second monitor.

 

Edit: Even with Auto-hide enabled your TaskBar should appear when you place the cursor over the bottom of you second monitor screen?

There is another option that says black out desktop but using window mode. That might not be the correct wording, but thats the option you use

In the P3D display options - select AUTO FILL MAIN VIEW - that will give you full screen and allow the 2nd monitor to be used.

 

Set the task bar to auto hide as per above.

 

That will do what you want.
