"Auto-hide the taskbar" ignored by Service Studio - Intentional or not?

I tend to use the setting "Auto-hide the taskbar" on Windows, but Service Studio just ignores this setting and takes all the real estate of the screen but not allowing the taskbar to show from the bottom. I have to click on that small minimize button...

This happens not only on version 9 but also with previous versions I worked with. Is this intentional? Why?
