Question is pretty self-explanatory. I cannot get Bitwig to sit above the Windows 10 task bar in full screen. The task bar always covers the bottom portion of Bitwig. It is the only app I have with this problem. To be honest Bitwig seems to have terrible window resizing ability period. Bitwig can never seems to resize correctly when using window snapping or general resizing.

Windows 10 (64-Bit) Post-anniversary update Nvidia GTX 1080 Bitwig 1.3.15

EDIT: Buying BS2 should not be the answer for a bug fix.

+1. It would be great to get this fixed but I guess that the developers have other things on their minds (like BS 2).

I agree that they probably have other priorities at the moment but having your program's window render correctly is pretty fundamental piece of functionality and should be addressed asap.

Seems to be fixed in BS 2.

Ditto, works for me in BS 2.

I finally found a solution : Download and install the well known AutoHotKey create a script (right click on desktop >New> Autohotkey script)

Paste this code in the script and replace :1920, 1034 1920: your screen resolution width 1034: your screen resolution height minus 46px (or your task bar height) In this example, my screen resolution is 1920×1080 the first 0, 0, are the coordinate (you may need to change it if you are in dual display)


#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

Run, C:\Program Files\Bitwig Studio\Bitwig Studio.exe
WinWait, ahk_class bitwig
WinMove, Bitwig Studio, , 0, 0 , 1920, 1034

You can place this script wherever you please and create a normale shortcut on the desktop which you can cusomize : Bitwig Studio name and icon.

Another solution if you know a bit this AutoHotKey and you already have a AHK script running, you can add a shortcut to maximize without overlaping with this code: in this example my shortcut is ctrl + alt + m


    IfWinExist, Bitwig Studio
WinMove, Bitwig Studio, , 0, 0 , 1920, 1034
Hope to help, have a nice day !
