Windows 7: SWTOR alt-tab making my taskbar move

SWTOR alt-tab making my taskbar move

Done a few searches and can't find anything that relates to the problem I'm having. So every time I play SWTOR and try to alt-tab out to check a website or something my taskbar gets moved 2-3 inch from the bottom of the screen leaving just a blank space at the bottom with my desktop picture on it. The only way I have found to get it to go back is to restart my computer.

welcome to the forum.

sounds to me like a game bug more than anything, and up and comming game update or windows update may address this.

Try this... Refresh your desktop using F5. I've had the same prob and that has helped once or twice.

I've also right-clicked on the desktop and, using "Screen Resolution", changed the rez to something compatible with my screen and back to my preference, and it works out.

Now, what causes this? Dunno... But, I'm way beyond the prob, and I think it's because I changed the rez of the game I'm playing...

Food for thought.

Are you playing TOR at the same resolution your desktop is at?
