Ezel - Windows 11 auto tablet mode - hide taskbar removed!

edited October 2021 in Windows 11
When switching from desktop to tablet mode Windows 10 had the option to auto-hide the taskbar so you don't accidentally launch apps when resting your wrist on the bottom edge of the screen. Windows 11 is a nice upgrade, but it removes a lot of tablet-specific manual toggle options and tries to guess what should change. Does anyone have a workaround? Maybe Acer could bring these options back with a control panel for Ezel models?

    Thanks, Bill; however, the hiding of taskbar here doesn't differentiate between tablet mode and desktop mode, similar to Windows 10, so once you turn on auto-hide, it does it for everything - desktop and tablet mode.

    Aha, it seems that Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, has decided we no longer need tablet mode per se. They just automatically move the taskbar icons a little farther apart and enable the touch keyboard when a normal keyboard goes away. Since we no longer have a tablet mode, we no longer have the ability to do things differently in tablet mode. :(
