hi, How can i change the height of the region that causes the tasbar to appear?

why do i want to do this?

the purpose of an auto-hiding taskbar is to increase your usable workspace, by moving the task bar out of the way.

but, currently as soon as my mouse get anywhere near the hotspot, the taskbar unhides. As a result of this, that region is no longer usable space.

your hotspot is higher than the bar itself. thus, your auto-hide feature REDUCES the amount of usable space, instead of increasing it.

the hotspot for unhiding the taskbar should be just a thin strip along the bottom of the screen, much shorter than the actual bar, and not a tall band which goes higher than the bar itself.
