Please try these steps:
1. Right-click the task bar and select “Properties”.
2. Click the “Customize” button for the Notification Area.
3. Under “Show notification from these apps”, select “Off” for VueMinder.
4. Click “Select which icons appear on the taskbar”.
5. Click “Off” for VueMinder.
6. Open the main VueMinder window and then minimize it. The taskbar should hide – at least it does on my Windows 10 computer.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Sorry, I don't know why those steps didn't work. I tested this on several of my Windows 10 computers and the steps worked fine, so I don't know what problem you're encountering.

Are you referring to the taskbar or the notification area? The notification area (aka task tray, aka system tray) is the area near the clock, usually in the lower-right corner of the screen.

If you're referring to the taskbar, there's an option in VueMinder to hide the taskbar icon when the main VueMinder windows is minimized. From the Options menu, click Program. Uncheck the box labeled "Always show taskbar icon" (if it's checked).

I think you're just seeing the expected behavior of Windows 10. The taskbar will reappear every time a window is minimized. If VueMinder starts when Windows starts, the default behavior is to start minimized, which means your taskbar will appear.

If you don't want to see the taskbar, click an empty area on the desktop and the taskbar will auto hide again.

This is just how Windows 10 works. If you open any other program and minimize its window, you'll see the taskbar reappears. It's not a bug in VueMinder.
