Taskbar on x86 is slightly taller then x64's (Windows 7) RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Taskbar in Windows 7 x64 has open applications consume the entire height of the Taskbar while under x86 applications don't. This means that on x86 you can move the mouse courser to the bottom of applications that appear on the taskbar and the application won't be highlighted by the mouse courser or respond when you left/right click.


    Why is this? (It looks to be either applications don't consume the entire height or the taskbar it self is a few pixels taller on the x86 version of Windows 7)


    Taskbar is configured to "Never combine"

    Core i7 920 @ 2.66GHZ | ASUS P6T Mother Board | 6 gig DDR3 1600 RAM | 2x 500g SATA2 HDD | Integrated sound | Gainward Geforce 250gts "Deep Green" 1024MB PCI-E (latest drivers) | Windows 7 Home Premium x64 | Thermaltake 750watt Toughpower Power Supply | Thermaltake Armor+ MX case.

  • There are no differences in UI between x86 and x64 Windows 7. There should be configuration issues, or your user account is corrupt.
