Have you tried going to My Computer > Control Panel > Taskbar Properties. And uncheck "autohide" and checking "always on top."

If that doesn't work, then try moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen and right clicking. If you get a different menu click "properties" and then click "always on top," and uncheck "autohide."

use this command on the command prompt (winlogo key + r)

c:\winnt\system32\filename.cpl

And replace the "filename.cpl" with the appropriate cpl file you want to use from the image above.

Also are you sure your resolution is set right?

And that your monitor position is set right (the button underneath your screen)...

Try putting the cursor at the bottom of your screen and left clicking while dragging the cursor up.
