Weird Maximize behavior with taskbar on top RRS feed

  • Question

  • Honestly, I'm not sure where to post this.

    I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. I keep my taskbar on the top.

    I have a few programs that don't seem to know that my task bar is on top (2 that I know of - iTunes 10.4 64bit and Freemake). So when I maximize them there is a gap on the bottom where it thinks the taskbar is and the top of the window is underneath my taskbar.

    I'm sure there are other programs that do this.

    I'm not sure why it is doing this?

    Since I can't add pictures here are a couple other posts I made that have pictures of the problem:

  • Simply resize the app window to full screen when in full size mode.

    Open the app

    Size the window to full size(single square in center at top right)

    Click the top and drag the window to the top left of the screen and under the taskbar.

    Click and drag the bottom right corner to the bottom of the screen

    Did that fill the space at the bottom?

    Now close the app and launch it again.

    Is the postion the same? Complete to the bottom.

  • Hi,

    How about other version of iTunes has the same issue?

    As Nano Warp replied, when you maximize the windows then manually resize the window, does it work?

    Regards,

    Miya

  • I have the same problem. It appeared from iTunes version 1.4 and persists in 1.4.1. 1.3 and before don't have this issue. Also, how could you possibly mark Nano Warp's reply as an answer? It is not. As explained, the top part of the window hides behind the taskbar. There is no way I can click the top of the window, so I am unable to solve the problem like that.
