Invisible Taskbar by Conscars Invisible Taskbar by Conscars
Judging by the concept images and comments here on DA, I know a lot of people will be happy to find this. This turned out to be a really simple edit so I'd like to thank garbanzox for AeroPlain, which this is based off of.

This works for all taskbar configurations. If you find any bugs, let me know and I'll see what I can do. Note that there will still be a blur where the taskbar used to be. Choose a plain background and adjust the colouring in Personalize to get the floating icon look.

If you want to get rid of the blur altogether, I suggest using HideBlur:

However, this will get rid of the window blur too.

UNFORTUNATELY it only works smooth as long as the traybar-size doesn't change, making it not nearly as usefull as I intended.

SOLVED in new version (also works for aero glass enabled) aureliusq.deviantart.com/art/Invisible-Taskbar-for-Windows7-386713008

note: this puts the bottom of your wallpaper on the taskbar

I really want this... but I can't get it to work. I've tried 3 different utilities to patch the theme in and it either jumps to the old win98 skin or default aero. Any tips?

Good job, my question is ; i want to use this Invisible Taskbar with an another theme, but its not possible because "Invisible Taskbar" is a theme. So i am not able to use two theme at the same time.

I know this is a hard question but is there any way to use it with an another theme?

Not that I know of. You would need to make the same modifications to your theme as I made to mine. I replaced the taskbar graphics with transparent PNGs, but I don't remember which program I used to do that.

I love this Theme, I'm using it now! Link to screenshot: [link] . I also made an Invisible Start Orb to compliment it, link: [link]
I have a request, would it be possible to make this theme with an invisible or clear/full glass start menu as well. possibly with black text/white glow. I think it would be awesome. Keep up the good work!

do you just apply this like a visual style,if i'm using a 3rd party style already does it change that back to normal aero,it downloads as aero plain,but in the readme you say to choose clear aero,when i click areoplain i just get normal aero with taskbar.is it possible to have invisible taskbar with any theme.

I don't know if it's even possible to get rid of the blur. What I did was remove the line that defined the edge of the taskbar so it blends in with simple desktops better, which is good enough for me.

yes it's possible, search for hide blur or win 7 blur disable sth like that
