The updated version of the Wii Internet Channel web browser that was released in April has a feature that will allow you to “auto-hide” the navigation bar. It’s not enabled by default, but with a quick change to the settings you’ll get back some of that precious TV real-estate. Here’s how:
- go to the start page in Internet Channel
- click “Settings”
- under the “Toolbar Display” heading, select the “Auto-hide Toolbar” radio button
- click the check icon to save
Once you’ve saved your settings, the navigation bar will hide it itself when you are using the web browser. Just point the Wiimote at the bottom of the screen to pull it up.
