    How do I make Windows memorize a toolbar on the taskbar?


    Whenever I hide a toolbar in the Windows taskbar that I made, I have to create it again by going to the folder of the toolbar. It's getting on my nerves. Is there a way I can make the toolbar stay so I can hide or show it whenever I want?

    Hello Caelan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm afraid that you can only add or remove toolbars. There's no hide or show.
