I'm in stock Windows 7, and something has happened such that I can't maximize windows fully. The Maximize operation functions, but behaves as though the top X pixels of my display aren't relevant. I can see my desktop behind the window, and I can drag restored windows into that space, etc.

What can I do to again be able to use my entire display when maximizing windows?

Unlock your taskbar, move it to the top of your display, and then return it to the bottom of your display.

Is this what you did to resolve the issue? – shufler Mar 30 '12 at 20:19
Yes. Surely it's a solution to a niche problem that hasn't adequately been defined. – lance Apr 2 '12 at 13:05
