Task Bar, set it under programs

Hi,
I hate this taskbar in RC x64, I want to set it just like XP and Vista that it can be set to allow other programs to be on top of it.

Can that be done ?

Hello Dinny and Noyb,

Sorry, but the option to disable the "Taskbar Always on Top" setting has been disabled in Windows 7 and cannot be changed.

You can set the taskbar to auto-hide as a workaround instead if you like though.

Theyl likely look at it as someones PoV rather than a feature suggestion.

Hopefully it may be something simple that they could just unlock to add back.

*32 by some programs in Task Manager
