I have Windows 7, 64 bit, and a Eyefinity video card.

I have multiple problems, One large on is that the windows, when maximized show up under the semi-translucent task bar. I thus cannot maximize my windows b/c useful information is hidden and blurred by the task bar.

I can't find anyone online thus far that is both having this issue AND has found a fix.

can you give us a screen shot? – madmaze Jan 12 '11 at 17:13
I can't yet b/c i don't have enough street cred apparently. I have to wait to get a higher rank. – Scott Jan 12 '11 at 17:29

Does that happen for every program (e.g. Windows Explorer?)

What are your taskbar settings?


[x] Lock taskbar
[ ] Auto-hide taskbar

I've never seen this on multiple systems (most running with Ultramon, too).

Out of the blue, I can imagine two reasons: Autohide in combination with something that prevents the task bar from hiding, or specific programs that maximize to screen instead of to desktop.

Lock Taskbar is turned "ON" and Auto Hide is turned "off" – Scott Jan 12 '11 at 17:18
and does it happen for windows explorer, too? – peterchen Jan 12 '11 at 17:23
It looks like windows explorer is working "Normally" – Scott Jan 12 '11 at 17:25
All other programs do not work normally. – Scott Jan 12 '11 at 17:27
enable Auto hide would fix this. – Moab Jan 12 '11 at 17:30
