This slight annoyance has been bothering me for some time now...
For some reason, some programs appear vertically too large; the bottom portion will be hidden by the taskbar. And of course, they just have to put buttons down there! In some cases, I can maximize the window and it will fit correctly, but sometimes the Maximize button will be greyed out. Presumably these programs are asking for my screen resolution so they can adjust themselves to fit, and Windows (or not?) is reporting it, but not accounting for the taskbar. Is there something I could do to fix this (hack-ish or not), or is it the fault of these applications' programmers?
I can turn taskbar "auto-hide" on to fix it, but auto-hide bothers me verily so this is only a temporary solution. Alternatively, I could move the taskbar to the side of the screen, but I don't know if I want to do that. :\
Sorry that I can't explain it any better; hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about.
