Preventing Taskbar from Blocking Bottom Of Excel Workbook On Fullscreen

I am using a macro to hide all of the Excel toolbars and menu bars upon opening a workbook. Excel also opens in full screen view. The problem is that the lower portion of the workbook is cut off and not shown because the windows taskbar is in front of it. Is there anyway around this. I know I can autohide the taskbar but this workbook will be used by many users on different computers and I dont want to inconvenient them by having to change their taskbar preferences.

Thanks.

Hello bbarrene,

Do you want the contents visible on the screen without scrolling or why is the taskbar an issue?

You could use a maximised window instead of Full screen view and then change the zoom factor, so the spreadsheet fits on one page.

But with different users on different monitors, you'll never really know how it will look.

I have my task bar to the left of the screen and if I use Full screen view, the taskbar it disappears and becomes inaccessible until I close the Full screen view.

So maybe you won't be able to anticipate all issues with Full screen. But with a maximised window, you at least know how it should behave.

cheers, teylyn
