Windows 7: (help) 1cm gap between my maximised window and the top of the screen

19 Aug 2011   #11

Windows 2000 5.0 Build 2195

Did you try doing a restart? Restarts sometimes does wonders.

[Thoughts: I think that might have been caused by a program built-in to your computer that conflicts with explorer]

Same problem here. There are no Windows 7 drivers for my Dell 2001FP monitor so Windows is using a Generic PnP Monitor driver. I'm guessing this is not uncommon and usually does the same job but it might not properly support as many resolutions as the actual manufacturer's driver? I was having trouble with the 1280x960 resolution btw (caused a 1 cm gap above maximized windows). In the end I just switched to a slightly different resolution (1152x864) and it works properly.
