    Just installed Civ 2 and have the following problem - many time the dialog boxes where choices are made is partially hidden behind the windows task bar at the bottom of the screen. I have tried different screen resolutions and this does help. I also know I can auto hide the task bar but would prefer not to.

    Thanks for any help

    Civ 2 classic 2.42 and Windows XP task bar

    I have problems with the windows task bar too. I have to edit Windows settings and make the task bar hide automatically, but I'm getting tired of having to do this every time I launch Civ 2. And it's a bit annoying when the task bar pops up when I accidentally have the mouse near the bottom of the screen.

    Is there a way to force Civ to run in full screen mode? Making the program run as maximized window doesn't help.
