This is my current desktop
I have my MAIN windows taskbar/startbar on top but im using an application to hide it and i have my main Rainmeter taskbar at the bottom. When i maximize windows, the bottom RainMeter taskbar would always get covered up which was really annoying. Surfing through the interwebz and forums told me to add the attribute of "DesktopWorkArea" in the main skin settings. Setting that would prohibit any application from going over my rainmeter taskbar when maximizing. Now this helped quite alot, but anytime you run an application that supposedly changes your resolution, this "DesktopWorkArea" attribute would be ignored. Don't get caught up with the details. I use Google Chrome and VLC media player alot and let me tell you, more than 70-80% of my time was spent with my bottom taskbar covered.
I searched the internet and even these forums and apparently this was a known issue that , well basically, had no solution and a "fix" wasnt coming anytime soon. Well after 4-5 days of contemplating and some research, i found a neat application that's sole purpose is to change your "DesktopWorkArea". It seems that this forum doesn't frown upon references to other applications assuming they aren't doing the same thing as Rainmeter. Having said that, this application is called "Desktop Coral". It is really great and you will find it really useful if you suffered from my problem. Maybe alot of you know about this, but a few hours of searching(these forums and most of the internet) proved futile. So i figured i'd help whoever stumbles upon this problem in the future.
