    Trick to keep game above windows 7 taskbar not working properly

    Here's the trick I'm using to keep my game appear above the Windows 7 taskbar:

    This actually does put the window above the taskbar, however it totally breaks alt+tabbing as the third event (event 8 in the image) doesn't actually trigger properly when tabbing away. Is there another method to stop the taskbar from always appearing in front of the application?

    What if you make it lose focus whenever user presses tab?

    With the above events, it just flashes up briefly and immediately assigns the game as topmost. Without those events, alt-tab works, but the game never goes behind the taskbar.

    Hmm, using the taskbar object seems to work well for this. Any drawbacks?

    I can't reproduce your problem on a Windows 7 machine with the options you show above. When the window gets the focus it's displayed above the Windows 7 taskbar, you don't see the taskbar anymore.

    Thanks for trying, so it appears to be specific to my machine. I'm running in hi-dpi mode, but I'm not sure that could cause it or not, and I've tried running with both integrated graphics and high-gpu mode but neither help.
