I use CDS_FULLSCREEN to change the display settings and i change my window to a WS_EX_TOPMOST, WS_POPUP window, but for some reason my start menu bar won''t go away. Is there any way to forcibly make the start menu bar move behind the window? When I switch back into windowed-mode the start menu should stay ontop. If you know about WINNT 4.00 quirks, please help.

OK, i figured it out.. when switching between the fullscreen window and a regular window, make sure you:

if (fullscreen)
SetWindowPos( HWND_TOPMOST, &rcFullPos, 0 );
SetWindowPos( HWND_NOTOPMOST, &rcWndPos, 0 );

after your call to ChangeDisplaySettings(...)
