Taskbar is covering the bottom of Webpage - Windows 7 Help!!!

parispparisp

The taskbar on my Windows 7 laptop is covering the bottom of the webpage.It happened all of a sudden i havent messed or changed anything

A quick google search is telling me that i may have to do some pretty complicated stuff ie delete user account???

Surely its something more simple?

Help really would be appreciated!

    Cant be that bad. Its hard to explain however to resolve a problem if I dont know the exact problem. Pictures would be nice :)

    Cant see how deleting your account will help :s

    OK i have just taken this pic from Google Images but i have the same problem! Not sure if you can see it but the bottom of the webpage is stuck behind the taskbar eg the zoom button and the loading bar are hidden behind. Also the guy who posted the same question as me has recieved no replies so cannot get help from that.
    Thanks x

    Have you tried the maximise button?

    Can you not just right click the taskbar and auto hide taskbar like in XP?

    Yes i can auto hide the taskbar but i want it there.It never used to hide behind it.The bottom of the webpage used to 'sit' on the taskbar not behind it.I just dont know how it happened! No-one on any site seems to have a solution for it?

    Turn it off and on again.

    Do you have the restore down or maximize button on your browser? Top-right corner next to the close button.

    Try clicking that.

    It sounds like (as I cannot see the image you provided due to the office environment I am sat within blocking images hosted at PhotoBucket.com) the setting you need to change is the check-box labelled "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows".

    I am guessing this is currently set (checked/ticked) & it needs to be unchecked (blank/empty).

    Use the Windows [Start] button on the TaskBar to find this setting in the Control Panel for the "Taskbar and Start Menu" (properties).

    BFN,

    Mine has always been like this. I dont like it the other way.

    You can press "F11" to make it full screen on the web browser :)

    I have the exact same problem in WindowsXP. I have had the taskbar at the top of my screen since I got the computer 18 months ago (and also on my previous computer with XP) and two months ago the windows started disappearing "under" the taskbar. I have tried changing the autohide, always on top, lock the taskbar settings. Nothing works. I downloaded a tool called TaskbarRepairToolPlus!, and that will fix the problem temporarily, but the screen reverts to the same problem about six times a day, and everytime the screen saver comes on.


    Any thoughts?

    Two suggestions:

    a) Determine which application(s) you use in those six days & after you "fix" the issue, run each in turn using the "fix" routine between each test in order to establish which application is causing the problem. If that does not help narrow down the problem also think what you do on a regular basis on your machine that may be interfering with the Taskbar. Do you run a backup procedure? Go to a certain web site? Use the Windows Update process? Run a full anti-virus check?

    b) Change your screen saver.

    This worked PERFECTLY for me :

    Takes a minute to work.

    1)Set AUTOHIDE on.
    2)goto taskmanager and kill the explorer.exe (end the process)
    3)start new task and type in explorer.exe
    4)should return back to normal otherwise set autohide off
    5)kill and restart the explorer.exe

    Both the taskbar issue and a shutdown issue on the same machine were resolved.
