[Release] M. Yamaguchi's Y'z Shadow Addon v1.9-070918

Post by Mrs Peel » Mon Sep 17, 2007 9:24 am

I came across this utility as I was googling for help with the problem I posted about here because it has a feature which you can set to stop windows opening with their titlebar beneath the taskbar when you have it situated at the top of your screen.

This is of course not the the primary purpose of this desktop utility (which has sadly fallen into the realms of abandonware now), but I am sure there are many of you who will enjoy it for it's intended purpose - which is to pretty up your desktop appearance.

Because this was not my own purpose however, I have only given this the minimal amount of pre-configuration to solve my particular problem and the rest you will have to configure for yourselves.
