Cool Toolbar On Top Of Screen


Been testing Windows 7 since yesterday on 2 PCs and I admit they run as smoothly as no other Beta so far...I'd give Windows 7 to be the best release after XP, but I guess time will tell.

Anyways, I got a question...I've been seeing this nice toolbar on top of the screen on some screenshots of yours, does anybody know what it is and where I can find it? I'm submitting a picture with a small,discreet arrow pointing at what I mean exactly.

Any ideas?

Adding A Toolbar To The Top Of The Screen
I just installed windows 7.

In vista, xp and windows 2000 I added a second tool bar to the top of the screen which had all my quick launch icons and an address bar for quick website entry.

In XP I could create a bar at the top of the screen by pulling the quick launch or address bar out of the task bar and then placing it at the top of the screen.

In vista I could create a bar at the top of the screen by dragging a folder to the top of the screen for a second.

Window 7 removed both of these methods. Can I get it back?

If not, this is a deal breaker and windows 7 is garbage.

Example Triple monitor setup with secondary toolbars at the top of the screen in vista:

Placed Taskbar At Top Of Screen?
I have my task bar placed at the top of the screen and auto-hide is OFF. This is what it normally looks like and should always look likeAs you can see indicated by the red line, there is a space between my web browser and the task bar.However if I restart my computer or if I open up a full screen game this is what happens:As you can see the space disappears. I prefer the look with the space but the only way to get it back is move the taskbar back to the bottom, then move it back to the topThe space comes back if I do that.However I should also mention that if I keep the taskbar on the bottom and turn off autohide, the space will be there as well but when I restart the computer the same problem occurs down there as well.

Always On Top For Full Screen Mode
Lots of little programs out there that will keep a selected windown on top of all other open windows but they only work in windowed mode. Not a single one I've tried works over a full screen app.I'm running Flight Simulator X on two monitors. To play multiplayer, I need a small utility that I need to see almost all the time. I could run in windowed mode, but that causes other visual problems and makes my second monitor almost useless.

How To Move Window Off The Top Screen?
I can't really explain it, cause my keyword lead me to Alt+Space+M.

It's different because the way it works just different. In Ubuntu, You can Hold down ALT Button and drag a window whenever you want to go. (This kind of ability I want to talk about)

I encountered some installer like AutoCAD, even with full resolution of my laptop (1920x1080) The window still show 90% of it, which is bad because the important button are on the bottom like [Next] [Cancel] [Install] [Finish], etc. I tried to drag it to the top, but Windows 7 won't let me do that. Also, the installation screen doesn't have ability to Maximize.

Cursor Stutters On Top Right Of Screen?
I recently built a new computer (running Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit), and I recently noticed that my mouse cursor is stuttering/slowing down at the top right corner of the screen (about where the close button is). This occurs regardless of what programs I have open. It feels as if there is a magnet in that corner of the screen that is screwing with the cursor.I am using a logitech mouse and checked the Setpoint settings, but acceleration is turned off so I think it is a Windows-related issue.Is there some kind of multiple-monitor setting to prevent one from overshooting the close button?

My specs:

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
MSI H55M-E33 Motherboard
Intel i5 750 LGA 1156
ATI 5770 HD 1GB DDR5 PCI Express
G-Skill Ripjaw Series 4GB DDR3 RAM
Logitech G5 Laser Mouse

Taskbar At Top Of Screen Interferes With Some Programs?
I keep my taskbar at the top of the screen. I just like it there for ease of use. I'm not trying to make windows look or act like a mac (they annoy me with a lot of their button positions and whatnot)... I just like it up there on the top of my screen.

However, a lot of applications start out up at the very top of the screen. In XP, they started out in the middle of the screen, but in 7... well they are all the way at the top. And my taskbar is covering the menus and title bar, thus not allowing me to grab and move them.

Any of these which are resizable by grabbing a side or bottom edge, I just click there and windows will pop it down to just below the task bar. But several aren't, and I can't move the window in any way, shape, or form. If I know the menu layout, I can use alt keys to duplicate most functions... but some don't have alt key equivalents, or I just don't know them.

Is there any way, short of moving my task bar, or making it auto hide (which I do NOT want to do), to prevent this from happening, or even just reliably fix it each time it does happen?

Colored Dots And Objects At Top Of Screen
When my computer finishes starting up, it ends with what looks like blobs of colored pixels in a line at the top of my screen. This happened for the first time tonight and I have no clue what happened. I took out my video card and plugged my monitor into the mother boards vga slot. Same result. Then i used a HDMI cable from my monitor to my motherboards HDMI slot. Still, with the same result. I plugged my Xbox 360 up to monitor with the HDMI cable and it looks fine so it's not on the monitor's end.


When the computer is loading, the screen stays black. Then when my desktop would normally show is when the pixels show up and the rest of the screen is black.

Artifacts On Top Of Starting Windows Screen, Freezing?
My Asus G73-JH laptop is currently freezing at the Windows Starting screen. I've read a lot of other forum posts that feature the same problem, BUT there is artifacting (bunch of colored dots) on the top of this screen that goes across the "Starting Windows" screen in a sort of horizontal line. Sometimes it just goes straight to the "Windows has failed to startup" screen. None of the System Recovery Options from the Startup Tool seem to help fix the problem, they've all been tried. Trying to boot in safe mode doesn't work either, as after it starts to load the files, the artifacting appears on the top again after about the third file and it freezes.

I have not made ANY major changes to anything on the system for over two months prior. Because of the artifacting seen, I imagine the video card is fried or malfunctioning. I called Asus and all they suggested to me so far was to reformat, because apparently they think its a driver issue, but I'd like to consider myself fairly tech savvy and believe that there has got to be a better solution that does not involve reformatting the hard drive, as I had a lot of important data that had been stored and not backed up the previous night before the unexpected freezing. The only things I seem to have access to is BIOS and the Startup Tool. I have a System Recovery Disc too, and am curious if there is a solution to this problem (I am not well versed in BIOS), and (assuming the video card is shot) if there would be a way I can access by data and possibly back it up before reformatting so I can persuade Asus support that my card is in fact shot so I can send it in for a replacement!

Weird Color Line Across Top Of Laptop Screen
after one day of upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 yesterday, my computer's screen saver stopped and had this weird colored line across the top of my laptops monitor...I restarted and right after the boot up screen it shoots the color line across the top of the screen. No matter what I do it just ends with the line at the top. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FW285J laptop. The thing ran amazing until just a little while ago. I've read that it might be my graphics card, but if that's the case then why does it show the windows 7 setup stuff when I try to reinstall windows 7. I'd dona clean install to see if my problem is fixed (though I doubt it), but I'm afraid of it resulting in my wifi and LAN not working. url...

Black Screen With A Blinking Underscore At The Top Left
I was installing Windows 7 onto my laptop (previously vista) and install seemed to run smoothly (went past asking about. PC name, network etc) but after it said it was preparing for first startup, nothing boots. After restarting.. besides the startup Acer screen, there is only a black screen with a blinking underscore at the top left. Whats happening :S?

I've tried F2 and running a setup but it just shows me some specs and such

Btw it has 2.0 Ghz + 2GB ram x__x

Invisible Windows - Titlebar Moving To The Top Of The Screen?
This is a problem that has been plaguing me for a while, notably on Core Temp and some pop-up windows on Google Chrome.What would happen is, for example, I'd go to a livestream channel page and try to pop-out the chat. The window would do the maximizing animation (titlebar moving to the top of the screen) but there'd be no window. Minimizing and restoring the window would prove the same results. Other pop-ups, such as popping out the actual stream would load a window perfectly.This problem also replicates itself with the program Core Temp. Reinstalling both programs fixed the problem temporarily.

Disable Auto-Resize Of Window At Top Of Screen?
If a window is moved above the screen so that parts are out of view, it is automatically resized to fit in view. Is there a way to disable this?

In Ease of Access Center, I checked "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of screen," but that only stops it from maximizing.
