    Kep taskbar down when resizing a window at bottom edge of screen?


    I need to resize a window by moving my mouse to its lower edge. When I try to do this, the taskbar (set to autohide) comes up and gets in the way. Is there a means to suppress the taskbar temporarily for this operation?

    :)

    Windows 10 taskbar covers and overlaps windows

    When that happens here I generally will grab the top edge of the title bar and resize it downward, then move the window upwards or wherever so the bottom of the window then isn't under the taskbar. Move and resize where ever you want - Quick n Simple.

  3. Issue with browser

    put mouse pointer in middle of green area, hold left mouse button down and move up to top. do not go too far as it will lock to full windows mode, not full screen mode, there is a difference. and then when you unlock full window mode, it will be right back
    as in your photo.

    then go to bottom of browser, put mouse cursor half on and half off bottom edge, hold left button down and drag to resize to top of taskbar

    Kep taskbar down when resizing a window at bottom edge of screen?

    Not that I know of offhand.. but the question has been asked a good number of times over the years - these are for Win 7 mostly- if you search for Win 8 or Win 10 you may have more recent answers:
    Add delay to auto-hide taskbar - Microsoft Community

    Add a delay time to Taskbar autohide? - Windows 7 Help Forums

    https://www.eightforums.com/customization/44638-add-delay-hidden-taskbar.html


    I can also suggest a way to do that e.g. with ALT + right mouse key (or other combinations) which avoids approaching the bottom edge of the window entirely.
