Taskbar positioning "bug"

    General discussion

  • Hello everyone. I have always noticed that the Windows taskbar is a non-completed tool regarding its design. It has been designed as a multi-position tool, which can be used not only at the bottom of the screen. In fact, as far as I can see, the bottom position is the only position where the taskbar looks OK. For example, if I am going to locate the taskbar at the right of my screen, then there is going to be two start buttons: right corner at the bottom & top corner of the right. This is the first "bug" which works only with enabled Metro style design.


    The other "bug" you can see from the screen shots I have made:

    "Task and Start Menu Properties" shows the settings I use for my taskbar.


    Taskbar does not hide itself properly. Not only at the right position, but at other three too.


    The 2th bug is available on Windows Vista, Windows 7 and still on Windows Developer Preview. The bug does not depend on monitor settings or something like that, it is absolutely due to the OS. I hope Microsoft will fix it as soon as possible.
