    Horizontal scrollbar in metro


    Hello,

    I am asking if somebody knows how to remove or just hide scrollbar in metro. Does it exists some registry tweak for such thing? Scrollbar is shown at the bottom of pic.

    Merry Xmas for everyone!

    I'm not sure if that is possible.
    In the past, I've removed many of the useless shortcuts to another folder eliminating the clutter on that screen and thus disabling the scroll bar from appearing.
    (Your screen orientation seems to be 'portrait' mode which will reveal the bar prematurely)

    I think you can put your taskbar there - by using StartIsBack. I don't know of a way to eliminate the bar completely.

    No, it doesn't portrait, this is just croped pic, it's a normal widescreen.
