Ok, so I play in window mode, here's my issue.

Launch the game it opens into a mostly filled window and covers the task bar, great exactly what I want. But then start up game again later and it does not cover the taskbar, so I have to go to taskbar properties and hide it.

I realize I can play full screen, however I don't want full screen, I want windowed with mostly a full screen.

Any reason why it would cover the taskbar sometimes but not all the time? Also if I restart computer and start the game it always covers the taskbar, until I start the game again later when it will not cover the taskbar.

I will google for a keyboard short cut to hide the taskbar, or build one myself, but I'm hoping someone might have some other ideas.

I also play in windowed mode and have the same issue with the taskbar sometimes showing up. However all I ever need to do to fix it is either just click anywhere on the screen with the mouse or if that doesn't do it then I minimise the window and bring it back to full size again.

Yeah, none of that works for me sadly. It might be like a message that my driver needs refreshed or something because the reboot it starts working no problem again.
