How to Hide the Taskbar in Windows Mobile

Updated March 23, 2017

Windows Mobile is a Microsoft mobile operating system that is used in smart phones and other mobile devices. The current version is Windows Mobile 6.5. The Windows Mobile operating system includes Internet access, Windows Media Player, e-mail and Office Mobile. When you use your phone to access the Internet, a taskbar displays at the bottom of the screen. If you want to hide the taskbar, you can switch to full-screen mode.

Turn on your Windows Mobile phone, and click the "Menu" tab.

Select the "Customize" option.

Click "Full Screen," and the taskbar will hide. It will stay hidden as long as you are in full-screen mode. To leave full-screen mode, hold your stylus down on the screen for a few seconds.
