Hey

Whenever I maximize a window the "status bar" or the bottom scroll bar always go under the task bar.

Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it??

Heres a pic of it.

Thanks

Yeah, your task bar needs to be set to "Always on Top." Right-click it and select Properties and then check the little box.

That doesn't always work.

Try resizing your task bar. Make it 2 lines thick, then maximize a window and see if it does the same thing. If it works, put it back down to 1 line again and see if it fixed it.

is your taskbar set to autohide? probably not as you'd realize that that was the problem... I have mine set to autohide but sometimes, for no reason, it stops hiding when it should and then i get the same effect as what your getting.

Zyfos, when I made it bigger the problem was gone but when I put it back to normal size the bottom of the window was under the taskbar again.

Cruiser78, its not set to autohide.

Any ideas?

Amazing that MS couldn't fix this little bug. They could have at least set it so the windows wouldn't appear behind the taskbar. No matter where I set mine, (left, top, bottom, right) windows will still appear behind it. :mad:

Try this. Open up the properties for your taskbar and turn off "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows". Reboot just for fun. When you get back in, turn "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows" back on.

This thread is kinda confusing Smokingweed asked how to keep the taskbar from covering the status bar, and everyone seems to be trying to help him do the opposite.:p

To keep the taskbar from covering other windows right click on a empty space on the taskbar select properties. then uncheck the box that says 'keep the taskbar on top of other windows'

I somehow fixed the problem, lol. All I can tell you is just play around with the Autohide option (turn it on and off).

Thanks anyway

Try dragging the taskbar (once unlocked) to the top of the screen. Then open, then maximize a window. Now drag the taskbar back to the bottom, and the window should shift accordingly.
This sometimes happens at work with MS' Office toolbar

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
