For the last couple of days I have the following problem on my XP machine.

When I maximize a window, it fills up my entire screen, including the Windows taskbar. I've unsuccessfully tried the following;

  • Reboot my PC
  • Relocate/resize my taskbar

Any ideas?


It may be that your task bar is no longer set "always on top". Here's how to fix it:

  1. Right Click on an empty spot of the taskbar and select properties.
  2. Ensure that that "Keep taskbar on top of other windows" check box is checked.
