I have a 5140x1440 monitor split into 1280x1440, 2560x1440, 1280x1440 panels. I'm trying to launch a game (Final Fantasy XIV) in borderless windowed in the center panel at 2560x1440, but it gets pushed upwards by the Windows taskbar (and then is more like 2460x1440 or something). Is there any way to have it appear over the taskbar? I can sometimes get it to work with auto-hiding the taskbar but it doesn't seem super consistent.

Hi Liam,

I don't believe there's a way to get it to drop over the taskbar, aside from auto-hiding it like you mentioned.

When it fails, if you use the "Move Window to Different Monitor" function and reselect that split, does that fix it up?

I'm able to fix it by hitting my Windows key to show/hide the taskbar but it's slightly tedious to have to do that.

Are there any plans for showing windows over the taskbar in the future? Does the Windows 11 taskbar even allow for something like that?
