Windows 7: Toolbar at top, some apps always start to high

Toolbar at top, some apps always start to high

I run the toolbar at the top these days, and sometimes certain apps want to start a bit higher than others, which prevents me from grabbing the top of the window and moving it. Sometimes the apps start at the right height, but not always.

I don't exactly have a fix for you, but I do have a work around. You can simply use your keyboard to move the window.
  • Alt-Tab to the window, or click on it.
  • Press the keys "Alt & Space"
  • Press the key "M"
  • Use the arrow keys to move your window
  • Press enter to stop moving the window.

Note: This won't work if the Window is maximized

Even in xp there was the problem, too. Sometimes some window borders are covered under taskbar. I think there is no general solution for it. But Rightclick on taskbar> lock and rightclick > unlock releases the window buttons for a while

toolbar to replace classic start menu
I miss the classic start menu so have created a new toolbar to sit next to the start menu. In the screenshot you see the number "1", that's because I created a new toolbar and named it "1". I would prefer that "1" to be a blank, but cannot figure out how to do it. If you unselect "show...
