Hello, I have a laptop running Windows 7 and all of my windows cover up the task bar, to access it I have to press the windows button. It's not on auto-hide and the windows aren't in full screen mode. I've gone through the properties of the task bar turning everything on and off to see if that was the problem and no look it seems any window which is open automatically scales to the full screen size and put the task bar out of view. I hope someone can help me with my problem.

Thanks, Ash.

What's your screen resolution set to?

Right click on the task bar and click properties. Tick the box that says "Keep the task bar on top of other windows". That should work if the issue isn't serious.

I actually don't have that option on properties is very annoying.

That's how it's supposed to be. Try unchecking it, press apply and OK, then restarting, check it, apply, then ok, restart. See if that helps?

Ok then it probably has something to do with the screen snap.
