Can’t see tooltips for items in task tray – they are hidden by taskbar ?

User called in with an issue that the tooltip – cream coloured popup  that appears when the client mouses over icons in task tray is not fully visible and cannot be read. Making the taskbar auto hide does not help. In this case the fix is to change the setting on the taskbar – right click on a space on the taskbar and select properties). Then turn off the option for the taskbar to be on top of other windows or applications.
