Is there a reason you want to do this instead of just running your program in full screen mode????

well i have a problem. i am using nehe OO basecode and when ever i set it full screen it goes a funny texture are pixelated and runs slowly. so what i have done is taken the borders and title bar off the window and set the width of the window to the resolution of the computer i am on and set the height smaller so that it is smaller than the window. so that is doesnt take it as a fullscreen window and i just want to get rid of the taskbar as its in the way. hopefully this makes sence. it is the only option i have at the moment and it works fine but i would rather if i could get fullscreen working probaly.

thanks in advance

Maybe the fullscreen option for the video mode you were jumping in to didn''t like the color bits (8/16/32) - I had this on an old VooDoo card.

Look at the section "Taskbar Display Options"
