When switching to full-screen mode (e.g. with Alt-Enter), the taskbar is not always hidden. In some proportion of switches it stays on top. (At least, for a while. With 0.53b and Win98, it does disappear within a second or two if not immediately. I couldn't say for sure that wasn't the behaviour years ago.) I (JTN) have only noticed it on Win98 systems (2 so far), but it has been the case on that platform for ages. OSD: On WinXP, the behaviour differs depending on whether the taskbar is set to "always on top". If this is set, the taskbar disappears a fraction of a second after PuTTY goes full screen. If "always on top" is not set, a fullscreen PuTTY covers it immediately.
