mIRC: 7.08

When I use /window -x @win it fullscreens a desktop custom @win, covering the system task bar. Instead of sizing it to the screen height - startbar height

What flags did you use when creating the window? Does this happen on 7.1? What OS are you using?

I have not been able to reproduce this here so far. The only way I have been able to make a @window fullscreen is by using the F11 key while the @window is active. Can you describe a step by step method that reproduces this for you?

Not sure if it's related but :
$os is xp, my window are always maximized, I type /window -d @a and hit f11 + echap, the problem is that echap is minimizing the desktop window @a, mirc lose the fullscreen mode until I reactivate this window (I can normally use mirc without fullscreen mode)

probably a similar issues : I hit f11 while the active windows is a channel window and then I hit echap, the actual channel is minimized as expected but then the last(s) active(s) window(s) are displayed without being maximized and clicking anywhere inside the windows maximize it and sometimes, there's a graphic glich with the nicklist (showing the menubar fix it)

I would also like to say that whenever the menubar shows when you're on fullscreen, the editbox flicker with a quite annoying effect.

This doesn't happen if the treebar is on, also you need to type /treebar on once when going fullscreen or the treebar isn't present.

I have been able to reproduce this - it seems that it is Windows that is making it full screen. Apparently if a window is created without a titlebar and it is sent a maximize request, Windows will automatically make it full screen. I have not been able to find a way to prevent this, so it seems to be a Windows feature.

How about a work around, So that mIRC sets the window size instead of using windows maximize function

There is no need to implement a workaround since this seems to be a standard Windows feature for windows without titlebars. If you are creating windows without titlebars then you will need to cater for how they work under Windows.
