Hides the specified window.
WinHide [, WinTitle, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText]
A window title or other criteria identifying the target window. See WinTitle.
If present, this parameter must be a substring from a single text element of the target window (as revealed by the included Window Spy utility). Hidden text elements are detected if DetectHiddenText is ON.
Windows whose titles include this value will not be considered.
Windows whose text include this value will not be considered.
Use WinShow to unhide a hidden window (DetectHiddenWindows can be either On or Off to do this).
This command operates only upon the topmost matching window except when WinTitle is ahk_group GroupName, in which case all windows in the group are affected.
The Explorer taskbar may be hidden/shown as follows:
WinHide ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd WinShow ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
