Windows 7 Windows opening behind taskbar SOLUTION...sortof

Hi to all...hopefully this fix helps anyone that has been frustrated with app windows opening behind the taskbar.

It not 100% fix, but it helps to fix it and avoid opening task bar properties and do the 'hide task bar fix'.

Once a window opens up behind the task bar, simply use your mouse to grab the border and start minimizing soon as you start doing this the window will pop forward of task bar.

Hope it helps...thanks to all that share fixes...I benefited many times.

live long and prosper!
