I have locked my taskbar on the left margin (vertically), and unfortunately,
some programs and windows have a tendency to open "under" the taskbar (at
least partially obstructed). Any solution that I am missing here?

Right click on the taskbar>unlock it>drag to the original position.

Sorry, I should have made clear the fact that I LIKE the bar on the left
side. I just don't like that when the bar is at bottom and locked, Windows
seems to know that it is not supposed to put anything under it when opening.
When it's on the left, it doesn't seem to know that. So my question was
whether I can leave it on the left, but force Windows to NOT open up windows
under there.
