Windows 7: Magnifier hotkey changed taskbar "edge"

Magnifier hotkey changed taskbar "edge"

Hey,

So, I was reading about hotkeys and tried "win+plus button" that was supposed to zoom in. It opened up the magnifier application, but it also seems to have changed the taskbar 'edge.' What I mean by that is that when I maximize a window it now expands to the whole screen, going under the taskbar, whereas before the bottom of the maximized window would coincide with the top of the taskbar.

I tried removing the transparency, but that didn't fix it. I've scoured the internet for solutions, but it is difficult to weed out the normal mundane customizations for this specific issue.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I unlocked the taskbar, moved it to another edge, and moved it back. Once that was done it reset.

Thanks anyway!!
