    If your Windows taskbar is set to "use small icons", this may cause the problem.


    Unselect "use small icons", and then use iTunes and it will be fine. Interestingly, if you then go back and enable "use small icons", iTunes will still be fine even after reboot.


    Good luck!

    does not work for me. (Win7)

    It still does not show me the bottom of the screen, i.e. the last song(s) in a playlist are not visible and there is no way to see them.

    Had this problem also, running on 64bit Windows 7, though only occurred today, after using without issue since last update.  Tried a few of the suggestions above; the one referenced below fixed the issue for me:


    1. Drag the iTunes window to the top-right corner of your screen, until Windows displays a pulsing, transparent semi-circle at the edge that's cutting off the iTunes display; the window should align to this edge.

    2. Click the maximise button on the iTunes window, which should expand the window to fit the rest of the screen.


    I'm using a 23.6" Samsung LED widescreen monitor, at 1920x1080 resolution, but whether this pertains to the above issue, I have no idea...


    Just glad that the issue where the Windows taskbar was overlapped by iTunes is fixed!

    Thank you so much. That worked fine. I can now scroll down because i couldnt previously see the scroll bar.

    I've now tried the "small icons" workaround (bTaryag), but it doesn't maintain a proper maximise after going back to small icons.  So I'm putting up with big icons for the time being, but this isn't a great fix since I need all the space on the screen I can get!  Oh well, maybe one day Apple will apply the "it just works" principle, and fix this.

  • noladog Level 1 Level 1

    Why would they think it's better to be show in 1.1 hours instead of 1:02:37 like it used to? Who comes up with this crap?

  • section2i Level 1 Level 1



    Came back in to iTunes today, with "big icons" switched on, and iTunes is STILL misaligned!  So bTaryag's fix doesn't work for me after all.  Going back to "small icons" again.


    Just want to point out that every other application on my system manages to maximise properly, whatever size my taskbar icons are.  Come on, Apple.



  • harrgabr Level 1 Level 1

    I have the same problem. to temporarily fix (until next use), Click the "maximize" button and try click & drag the top bar of the window. then manually drag the corners of the window to make itunes small. now click the "maxmimize" button to make it big and it should fit. I have to do this every time I open itunes, but it only takes like 5 seconds. hope it helps

  • teal.justin.m Level 1 Level 1

    Same issue here.  I was using large icons.  I switched to small, quit itunes, opened itunes, switched back to large, quit itunes, opened itunes.  So far it works.  If it doesn't work after reboot i'll post again.  No news is good news.


    PS - Linux version of iTunes?  c'mon!  It'd be the easiest port EVER.

  • teal.justin.m Level 1 Level 1

    Nope... Quickest fix is the Windows button + Right arrow, Windows button + Up arrow... bummer...

  • EJ8 Level 1 Level 1

    Nope...quickest fix is to stop using iTunes.  It has become a joke and a huge POS.

  • Víctor Noriega Level 1 Level 1

    This is completly unbelievable...

    I have the last version of itunes on Mountain Lion and every time I open itunes I have to resize the window, and I can't find any solution on google... This had not happened with itunes 10

    Looks like a minor thing but lastly becomes really annoying.

    Is apple a reliable company? this is a 2000dls machine...

  • JamesPaulMallon Level 1 Level 1

    First of all close iTunes and then if you are in Windows right click Taskbar and then Click Properties then click Auto Hide Taskbar then click Ok after it open iTunes and it is now fit on the screen and now click Taskbar and then click Properties then click Auto Hide Taskbar then click Ok after it your iTunes is fit in your windows and your windows taskbar is not hidding from now so i hope you understand  on what i type in here!


    Sorry for wrong English.

    My Apologies.

  • mdwpsyd Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks JamesPaulMallon that worked for me and seems to be one of the quickest work arounds.


    I use your work around when I have to use iTunes, e.g., for an iPhone App update (when I don't have access to Wi-Fi and the App update file is too big to download directly to the iPhone with a 3G connection).


    Otherwise, I'm purchasing music from and using Tomahawk as my music player.
