Steps to reproduce:
* Put desktop task panel at top of screen.
* Start emacs with 'emacs -Q --fullscreen'.

Symptoms:
* Emacs' frame appears under the task panel, i.e., Emacs' title bar
  and part of menu bar are hidden behind the task panel.

It is a known bug/misfeature. Currently, Emacs' fullscreen support in
Windows is not very good. It doesn't grok multiple monitors, for
example. As a workaround you can move the frame to the right place,
either from your .emacs, or with registry settings. Also, I have a
(not very well tested) patch somewhere that fixes this problem
("tiptoes around" would be perhaps a more fitting description). Yell
if you want to give it a try.


I have for long time had a fix for this in the patched version of Emacs+EmacsW32 too. This patch is incomplete, since the bottom part of Emacs window, below the minibuffer (or at the bottom part of it) is sometimes not redrawn.

I would be glad to incorporate your patch there for testing. There has been no complaints about the current patch, except for the redrawing which is a little beauty problem in only some special cases. However that does not mean that I know that it is otherwise correct. Kim said once that he was unsure whether there are problems with maximized windows and the current display code.
