Is it possible to have a Frame go on top of the windows taskbar? I'm making a game that I want to be fullscreen regardless of the user's settings, and i have the resolution, but i can't count on a user to auto-hide their taskbar. Isn't there some kind of System.makeJoesLifeEasier()?

I've heard it takes forever to grow a woman from the ground
