keep all windows within main notes window

In a win98 operating system, the  taskbar hides (even if set as always on top), when opening Inbox DB.
It happens if chosing not to keep all windows within notes main window(at user preferences->mail options). how is it possible to prevent this?

On the taskbar's properties, do you have "Auto Hide" selected?  Auto Hide will hide the task bar while you're working.  I may have misunderstood your question.

yes, you misunderstood....
as I said, the task bar marked as "always on top" not "auto hide" and thats how I would like it to stay, even if I open the inbox db.
thanks for the effort.

Hi irism,

There is a way out. Ofcourse, you may have to do this to all the seperate windows you open from notes. Use the overlapping square (the restore button) on the top right hand side of the window and restore the window size. Then drag the window border to the size that is just right to display the taskbar. This way, when ever you open the window, it is restored to the same size and it does not cover the taskbar.

However, I am curious about why you would like to use the SDI specific feature. Does it not help to use the MDI (keep all windows within the main notes window)?

well, first thanks. I tried this before and its a way, which is acceptable to me but not to the user I am helping.
he wants to open each db in a separate window+ see the task bar always on top....
any way, I think he will have to accept this.....
