Changing the position of the taskbar, or hiding it is one of the basic desktop customizations that people take with them while moving to new operating systems. This is a quick post explaining how to hide the Chrome OS taskbar.
How to Hide Chrome OS Taskbar
Chrome OS lets you auto hide taskbar. There is only one thing that you need to know. Chrome OS calls the taskbar “Shelf”.
To auto-hide the taskbar, right click it and choose Autohide shelf. This will hide the taskbar automatically and it will appear when you mouseover the area again.
From the same menu, you can change the position of the taskbar. The default position is bottom. You can change it either to left or right.
I know that Mac users coming to Chrome OS would love to see an option to move the taskbar to the top of the desktop, but that’s not available at the moment.
