It doesnt work here... (XP Pro)

I think the Taskbar key is not machine independent.

And u will loose all taskbar icons beside the clock if u kill explorer.

I suggest to run systray.exe at the end.

A delay is needed to wait until explorer has finished loading otherwise running systray will be useless.


: Kill explorer
TASKKILL /im EXPLORER.EXE /f >NUL 2>&1

: Restart explorer
START EXPLORER.EXE

: Delay 1,111 sec
PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1111 > NUL 2>&1

: Restore taskbar icons
START SYSTRAY.EXE

If i use this command:

TASKKILL /im EXPLORER.EXE /f

Then the explorer.exe doesn't restart automatically and i must use this command to start it agan:

START EXPLORER.EXE

And if i enter the command "START SYSTRAY.EXE" i see no differences.

Test on too new installed PC's.

I wanted a shortcut to toggle the autohide option of the taskbar and I've come up with the following batch file.

My registry value is not the same with the one given above. I noticed that by only changing that option from the taskbar properties just a digit of the value was altered from 2 to 3 and back. So I just toggle this digit. However this digit may also represent more options in its bits and be different to other PCs. But one can easily adapt it the same way.

:}The problem is that I have to restart explorer so the new registry value takes effect and I loose all opened explorer windows. Can anyone give a script of how I can just refresh the taskbar. Alternatively we could save and restore all opened paths as in this thread, but I want it in a batch script.
