Keep Taskbar Always on top

Is there a way to always keep the Windows Taskbar on top of all programs? There was a option in Vista but I dont see it in Windows 7 let me know if there is such a setting. Thanks

Hello MaDeMaNN, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You would just turn off Auto-hide in Windows 7 for this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Brink by turning that off it will keep the taskbar above other windows all the time?

Hello Hethoofd,

Yep, you are correct that Auto-hide is turned off by default in Windows 7.

i certainly don't have this problem. in fact, i think the taskbar is too on top! in xp i was able to drag, for example, the mini player from AIMP2 and set it on the taskbar. i can't do that in win7, because as soon as i click the taskbar, it buries the player

I'm having a similar issue. When i have the taskbar docked on the right hand of screen and then maximize Firefox it ends up covering the bar. Is there a way to make it so when I maximize a program it doesn't cover the taskbar? I am using the maximize button, and not the F11 command.

Thanks much!

Thats very odd. I just tested out docking my taskbar to the right and maximizing firefox, and no such probs.

Is there a method/hack or a 3rd-party program that allows the user to hide the taskbar by dragging its top border line downwards, after un-locking the taskbar? I remember I could do that under Win9x.
