Honestly, I'm not sure where to post this.


I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.  I keep my taskbar on the top.


I have a few programs that don't seem to know that my task bar is on top (2 that I know of - iTunes 10.4 64bit and Freemake).  So when I maximize them there is a gap on the bottom where it thinks the taskbar is and the top of the window is underneath my taskbar.


I'm sure there are other programs that do this.


I'm not sure why it is doing this?







Custom PC, Windows 7

    My taskbar is on the left and iTunes 10.4 just goes under and leaves empty space on right.

    Hope to see fix soon.

    I think i can add a little more detail to this discussion.


    I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on my personal productivity machine with dual monitors. I like to keep my taskbar located at the top of my 1st desktop display (personal preference). When I have iTunes running on this display I encounter a bug when I try and maximize the iTunes application window. The menu bar, minimize, maximize and close buttons become hidden by my taskbar. Also the play controls, volume slider, layout buttons, search box, and media info display get chopped in half by my taskbar. If I set my taskbar to auto hide this bug is mitigated, however I dont like auto hiding my taskbar. I also noticed the bottom of the maximized iTunes application window doesn't meet with the bottom of my display. Instead theirs a gab between the bottom of my display and the bottom of the application window which is the same size as my taskbar. On my second display, which has no taskbar, I can maximize the application window to full screen with out issue. However when I minimize the application and then restore the application I get another gap at the bottom of the second display. Again the gap is the size of a taskbar.


    Their seems to be no issue when you have the taskbar at the bottom of your main display. However I still experience the gap at the bottom of my second desplay when I minimize and restore the application.


    On this machine I was also able to recreate all these issues on multiple VM instances running different versions of windows. (XP Home SP3, XP Pro SP3, XP Media Center Edition 2005 version, all variations of Vista 32bit and 64bit, all variations of Windows 7 32bit and 64bit) Note: iTunes does not support the 64-bit edition of Windows XP so i couldnt test this OS.


    I was also able to test this issue on my gamming machine which uses the AMD eyefinity setup, consisting of 3 24" monitors. This setup also has the same maximize issues as discribed above. Seperate from these issues is a bug within iTunes or AMD drivers that crashes the application everytime I playback a video podcast. Havn't had the time to diagnose this bug.


    Just as a side note, I also tested these issues on multiple work laptops and was able to recreate every issue no matter what the make/model or which windows OS version was installed.


    Hope this information was helpful.

    Way to go Apple for ******* up a working section of code. This is worse than Microsoft and Word 2007.

    Apple please fix this! Together with strange high DPI behaviour of iTunes I've the feeling that you should use more different configurations of Windows for testing ;-)...

    Seems like it's a common problem amongst many, many users of iTunes! I have exactly the same problem too on my XP machine (SP3). Actually I've come to the conclusion that Apple just don't give a flying ***k about this or any other bugs!! I've been emailing them for almost 3 years now about another issue relating to the cover flow window which is over saturated making the cover art very dark! That particular issue appeared right when the interface had it's last re-design which incidently looks pants compared to the nice sleek polished look of the previous interface. iTunes now reminds me of Windows XP Luna Theme (Silver) and we all know how crap that looks!


    Have Apple ever responded to any of my enquiries? NO!!!!!!!
