Windows 7: Windows 7 taskbar issue

Windows 7 taskbar issue

Hi all, I have recently come across this issue where my programs are opening up behind the taskbar. See the attached picture for an example with Excel where the tabs are not on the screen because the window seems to be stretched too far below the task bar? Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello drc2265 Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Fortunately there is a fast solution for this. Namely that would be the option to enable or disable keeping the taskbar on top of all open windows which can be an annoyance at times especially when trying to close one up!
