Taskbar Gap 126.96.36.199
Tray hotkey to toggle desktop work area. PercentGap .ini file option to set the size of the Taskbar Gap. Taskbar Gap stores the current work area on start up. On close it resets it to the saved value.
Sorry but I only have a single monitor setup. I can't support multiple monitors.
Hitting Alt-F7 hotkey or double clicking the Tray Icon toggles the work area setting.
The Tray Icon changes to indicate the current setting(gap or no gap.)
It is free for you to use at your own risk.
You can download from my hotkeys page:http://www.favessoft.com/hotkeys.html
See About Taskbar Gap command in Tray Menu for particulars.
Also a Readme file is enclosed.
When the Taskbar Gap is in effect you should be able to maximize windows normally and have them respect the gap next to the Taskbar.
