Thread: Weird Maximize Problem - Registry Change?

  1. #1

    Question Weird Maximize Problem - Registry Change?

    I recently installed a few Stardock programs, such as windowblinds, desktopx, and a few other os-modifying programs. I decided to get rid of them, and later realized that all of my windows maximized full screen, obscuring the taskbar. While that can be useful, it can be a problem when you would like to quickly access various programs with the mouse. I reinstalled the programs, and attempted to remedy the problem, to no avail. If anybody knows any registry values that could be used to fix this "problem" of mine, I would appreciate it.

    Question Re: Weird Maximize Problem - Registry Change?

    Er, no, that doesn't work, it's not the full screen of IE or some other program that has a full screen option. It seems that ALL programs are affected, and any maximized window of any program obscures the taskbar. Anyone have any other ideas?

    I'm not sure I'm fully understandning the problem, but there is a setting under the taskbar properties that when checked forces the taskbar to be on top of any other window. Is this what you're wanting?
