Reserve screen space

I recently downloaded RainMeter and put the 30px taskbar at the top of my screen. the problem is that icons at the top of my screen stay under the bar. Can i make it so that icons are spaced to not be under there?

You have to change the place of either the icons or the rainmeter bar, if you dont want them to overlap

This --may-- help, I've tried it and it didn't work for my usage (docks). You can try it and see.

Matter of fact, it was made for usage with Rainmeter.

Iv actually tried that before, and I didnt like it because it wasnt free, and it would make the dock always visible over my browsers, photoshop ect.

It's free...
And if this isn't it, I highly doubt any program will do what you want. You'll have to have someone custom make the program for you, as people probably don't want their icons sitting below the meter, but not windows...
