by Justin213141 / July 14, 2010 3:38 PM PDT

I don't know what i did to my computer (windows 7)
But now, whenever I maximise or aero snap to the top, the window fills up all of the space, even under the taskbar, which isn't set to auto-hide

Keep the Taskbar on top of other windows.

Right click the Taskbar, select Properties. Look for an option that says, "Keep the Taskbar on top of other windows".

See if that helps.

I have this problem but there is no "Keep the taskbar ontop of other windows" option. I need help! Please, now do I fix this?!?!?!?!?!?

That box is no more. The only time I have any issue with the original post above is a very old application.

My workaround is to not maximize the window or snap to the top.

No cure is planned for this one.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
