I thought there used to be a "Keep taskbar on top of other windows" option (or something to that effect) but I don't see it.

I'm not sure that you can in Windows 7. Although I can't imagine why you'd want to, it could get annoying.

If I read this right, the programs are under the taskbar?

How did this happen?

^I interpreted it as referring to the Y coordinate, not the Z.

Well actually a mixture of both. It seemed like he wanted his programs to be on a higher Z plane than the task bar instead of on the same Z plane and therefore stuck vertically underneath it. If that makes any sense.
