I have a prob when I running a mac type desktop on windows (where the task bar is at the top). What happens is when I maximize a window the title bar goes underneath the taskbar. Is there any way to stop this ?? and is anyone else having this prob ??

I know what you mean and get this w/ all the new themes I have tried since moving my taskbar to the top :( I would very much like to know if there is a "fix" also

I sometimes encounter the problem when the window is not fully maximized. I just have to right-click the entry on the taskbar, and select Maximize, and it goes back to being normal.
I know it's not a fix as such, but it's a workaround, I suppose. :)

Johnny if you can get the funds, go for it... the transfer is seemless, you can get all the software you need.
i have used DOS 6.0+ Windows 3.1 / 3.11 / 95 / 98 / ME / 2K / XP / Longhorn
Linux Gentoo / BSD / Slackware (the best *nix ;)) / Mandrake / Suse / RH / Fedora / Ark Linux...... the list goes on (probably on the verge of 20 distros, maybe more)
and OSX :D

out of all them OSX wins hands down

when / if you go for a mac get plenty of memory tho, i have 640 PC2700 ;)

anyway, lets get back On Topic :)

O.k I figured it out .. All you have to do is unlock the taskbar :) It was so simple to fix, yet so easy to bypass lol ..

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
