I don't believe you're understanding the issue I am having, lol.

The windows I am referring to are in windowed mode. It's a non-issue in full-screen mode because I don't expect to have my taskbar accessible with full-screen applications.

This may help as a work-around:

WinSize2 Remembers Window Position & Size with a Hotkey in Windows 7

Many apps just assume the taskbar will be at the bottom and that opening usng 0 0 for Left and Top will be ok. They don't check the Desktop Work Area when positioning themselves.

With Winsize2 you select a window, position and size it how you want. Then hit the hotkey. When Winsize2 sees it open it sizes and moves it. It leaves it alone after that(meaning it doesn't fight you if you size and move the window with the mouse or whatever.)

edit: for windows that have gotten underneath the taskbar and you can't get at the caption bar to drag them, it's easy to move them using my TicClick utility. You click any part of a window to make it the "active window" then hit the hotkey. A number pad pops up where you can position the window in any of 9 positions. It gets the Desktop Work Area every time you hit the hotkey so it takes note of the Taskbar location. Only thing is I have a single monitor setup. So I can't support anything multi-monitor. It's worth a try though. Very simple and low on resource usage.

I sure don't understand yet.

I was hoping you'd post a full screen shot by now. As they say, "a picture is worth...".

The combination of WinSize2 and your utility is a perfect work-around.

=) Thank you! Much appreciated.
