Windows 7: Customize maximized windows default

Customize maximized windows default

bit of a strange one this.

I have a program called Rocket Dock installed, it replaces the windows task bar with one more like what's on mac and as such I have the task bar on auto hide. Trouble with it, is that when you maximize a open windows it fills the screen edge to edge, where as if the task bar is visible windows stops at the top of the bar. Is there any way to alter the size of windows to say - left 100%, top 100%, right 100%, bottom 95% so it maximizes as normal but the bottom stops short of the screen edge?

Welcome to Seven Forums Britman. You want a space at the bottom? Where the taskbar used to be? You mean so RocketDock shows? I believe RD has an always on top setting? Or, you might try setting the taskbar to double height before auto hiding it. If I read your post wrong, please correct my interpretation A Guy

Thanks for the welcome, I've found a solution, and it was on the RD site under add-ons, it's called 'preserve edge of screen'
