Windows 7: WIN 7 PRO: top of windows get stuck under the task bar

WIN 7 PRO: top of windows get stuck under the task bar

Hello,

I am having a problem... I use Windows 7 pro, and I like my start menu bar to be at the top of the screen, because on a 15" laptop screen, I noticed that I dont have to scroll down as much and I can see more on my screen, when looking at webpages.

But here's the catch..

I have started to notice, I normally use classic theme, but I noticed that the top of the windows are going up under the taskbar ...

There is a fix for this? I have the LOCK TASKBAR turned on... but, programs like windows media player is called up from lets say a webpage, it opens up, UP UNDER the taskbar.. its very annoying.. I even tried hiding the taskbar, but that started acting up, I would mouse over it and it would pop out, but would get stuck and not hide itself again till I toggled the hide taskbar on/ off.

Right now I have the taskbar on the right side of the screen. and left turned on.

Any ideas of why the windows go up under the taskbar and is there a fix for this?

Thanks,
Christopher

oops.. I didnt mean to attach that wrong picture...

What I was saying is, when the task bar is at the very top of the screen, the top of the window goes up under the task bar. so you cant see the _ [ ] X at all.. I noticed it started doing that, after I put my theme as WINDOWS CLASSIC... right now I have the toolbar on the right side of the screen.

I believe this is what you need. The taskbar is usually "always on top' when at the bottom of your screen as well.

Taskbar Always On Top - Disable or Enable
