[UWP][C++] Is there a way to prevent the taskbar from being shown when our game is fullscreen? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our Windows 10 UWP game has a row of buttons along the bottom of the screen.  When in fullscreen mode it's very easy to bring up the taskbar with the mouse, when you are just trying to use the buttons.

    Is there a way to prevent the taskbar from being shown when fullscreen?

  • Try turning off DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_FLAG_ALLOW_MODE_SWITCH flag.

    EDIT: I'm not sure.

    No I haven't found one that does this.  I don't think it's possible at this point.
