I want front panel of VI to cover the complete screen, including Windows Taskbar space also. I made windows size of VI front panel equal to screen size, but still Windows Taskbar appears. How can I make VI to float over Taskbar?

Follow the steps as below:
  • Go to VI properties. 
  • Choose "Window appearance" category
  • Choose "Custom"
  • Click "Customize"
  • Make "Window behaviour" as "Floating"
  • Click "Ok"
  • Click "Ok" again to commit new settings
Save VI and Run.
