- Monitor: Specifies the screen on which the taskbar is shown. This parameter is available if Taskbar size in Multi Monitor is set to Restrict taskbar to one monitor (default: 1st monitor).
- Taskbar on top of all windows:
☑ The taskbar is accessible on all screens, even in sessions with a full-screen window.
- Taskbar Auto Hide:
☑ The taskbar is hidden and will only be shown if the mouse pointer is moved to the position of the taskbar at the edge of the screen.
- Auto Hide Behavior: Specifies when the taskbar is automatically hidden.
- Intelligent: The taskbar is shown as standard. The taskbar will be hidden if the space is needed by a window, e. g. a window in full-screen mode.
- Continuous: The taskbar is hidden as standard. The taskbar will be shown if the mouse pointer is moved to the edge of the screen.
Taskbar Show Delay: Time interval in milliseconds before the taskbar is shown. The mouse pointer must be at the edge of the screen constantly during this time interval. This setting is only effective if Taskbar Auto Hide is enabled (default: 600).With the show delay, you can prevent the taskbar for a full-screen session being covered by the thin client's taskbar. A show delay is necessary if the taskbar for the full-screen session is set to be shown automatically and both taskbars are positioned at the same screen edge. If no show delay is set and the user brings up the taskbar for the full-screen session, this will immediately be covered by the thin client's taskbar. During the show delay time interval, the user has time to move the mouse pointer away from the edge of the screen.
- Taskbar Hide Delay: Time interval in milliseconds before the taskbar is hidden. This setting is only effective if Automatically hide taskbar is enabled (default: 400).
Further settings options can be found under Screensaver and Screenlock.
