first make a var:
var hTaskBar: HWND;
---------------------
Enter this in the form's OnCreate Event Handler:
hTaskBar := FindWindow('Shell_TrayWnd', nil);//Finds the taskbar
---------------------
to show the task bar:
ShowWindow(hTaskBar, SW_SHOW);
---------------------
to hide the task bar:
ShowWindow(hTaskBar, SW_HIDE);
