Windows 7: Taskbar view problem

11 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium


firstly i must say my english is not very good so excuse the mistakes.

I have a problem with my taskbar. Lets think x-y-z axises. When i open a window or a internet browser normally taskbar should be below that window at "y". But now it's above any thing at "z" (only for chrome it's below the window).

If i couldn't tell try theese screenshots:

With opera-->facebook

With chrome-->facebook

When at any window:

What should i do to fix this?

At chrome's screenshot it's the bottom of my screen. start menu is below the chrome, not visible unless i press the windows button.

I have to admit I'm a little confused.

When I think of x, y and z, it's 3-dimensional.

Are you saying your taskbar is located at the top of your monitor?

I'm sorry for not understanding.

Hello Kutulu,

I believe you may be referring to taskbar always on top. You might see if making sure that you do not have it disable may help.

Hope this helps,

no it's not at top. forget x y z =)
How does your screen look like when you full screen a window? the window shows at above and taskbar shows up at where window finishes. But at mine, window fills the whole screen and taskbar seems on it. so the lower part of window cannot be seemed. it's under the task bar. for example, at an internet browser when you roll over a link at left bottom you see the url of the link,right? but i cannat see that part of my browser. because it's under the taskbar.

let me give you one more screenshot:

give your attention to painted area. there must be facebook's chat button. we're able to see the top of it but rest of the button is under my taskbar.

It is normal to see a opened window behind the taskbar if you have transparency enabled.

I think you may have auto-hide turned on. This will have a full screen window still show behind the taskbar at the bottom.
