On Windows 7, when I maximize an application window, like MS Word for example, the status bar of that app becomes hidden behind the Windows 7 Taskbar instead of docking itself at full screen mode, above the taskbar.

Can I change it so when I maximize the window, it'll take up all the screen space that is ABOVE the task bar?

  4. Reboot again.

This is not a good solution. The issue does not start at reboot, so why do I have to reboot TWICE to make it go away? There has to be a better way. –  avguchenko Feb 25 at 22:17
