Windows 7: Workspace Not Occupying Full Screen

3 Weeks Ago   #11

Win 7 Pro 64bit
Unuseable space at top of screen

Thank you indeed. I can follow your steps to 'Advanced' but I have no 'User Interface' option. I've tried 'restore settings to their original defaults' with no success.

F11 produces a full screen as opposed to a maximised screentbut only temporarily and results in the loss of task bar options.

I've tried CTRL+WIN+SHIFT+B with no success.

I note another user with this problem upgraded to Win10 and that worked but only for a while.

Can you help me some more please?

Many thanks.

Your email address is still there. Edit the post and remove everything relating to the image.

So your taskbar is always cut in half like that?
