I have reduced my laptop screen resoltution temporarily, and tried your suggestion in post #2.
Until now it have worked, I can now open and close iTunes and it perfectly fits the screen.
I will now try to reboot the notebook and wil give feedback.

I have played around a bit and (for me that is) it's a combination of playing with Maximize Box (the Square Box in the Upper Right Corner) and the interaction with the Taskbar. (From Post #2)

first I am on windows 7 professional 64 bit. running iTunes 11 for my iPhone 5.
i and others based on looking in support forum have same issue. when you expand the iTunes window the bottom status bar is hidden halfway under the windows desktop toolbar.
The exact same issue is happening on right side of window in regards to the scroll bar literally halfway off the window so it can be used.
Just so there are no questions I am running all resolutions at standard sizes no custom sized text, screens or windows.

that its not a permanaent fix as issue pops up again once you reopen itunes. the only way i can get it to show staus bar and side bar when i open itunes all the time and evrytime is by making it smaller tahn maximum size i leave an inch or two of desktop showing around endge then maximize itunes window.
But to make sure i get it to show status bar and scroll bar again i must resize itunes agin to smaller than full window size BEfore closing. What a terrible coding job for them not to catch this as i see so many windows users complaining of this on many itunes/iphone sites. It never did this in any version I have used since 2007.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and I'm having the same problem with maximizing since I upgraded to Itunes 11. IMHO It has nothing to do with changing or not changing any of the settings in Windows. This is an issue with Itunes. It's only a slight nuisance but Itunes ends up slightly larger than my screen when maximizing and I'm left with clicking the fullscreen button in the top right once more to adjust it to my screen properly. I've never had to make this extra adjustment in the previous versions.

Okay... I have a solution that works for me. I'm on W7 64-bit and I've had this problem with other applications in the past. The trick involves opening iTunes, then opening another i.e. window with something else (e.g. Google) without touching the iTunes window. Go back to iTunes, add the sidebar (Ctrl+S) and the status bar (Ctrl + /), restore and then resize by the usual method of dragging the corners etc. Without interferring with iTunes, go back to the second window you opened and close it. That will leave you with your iTunes window which you should now close. When you reopen iTunes, all should be well. The guidance I read said you should go to file & exit rather than clicking "x" to close the windows, but it worked both ways for me.

I've now found the link to guidance described above: http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f131/solved-how-do-i-maximize-windows-by- default-159026.html #5 onwards.
Hope it works for you. I've never had any problems with any iteration of iTunes and like many here this was driving me mad.

You know what else would work? IF APPLE PAID ATTENTION TO THEIR **** PROGRAMMING FOR WINDOWS!
This is a stupid fault, and I've filed feedback about it and they still haven't fixed it. I can repeat the problem on all of our work machines, so it's "not just me."
I don't think Apple cares.
