Personal Windows OS toolbar overlaying full screen RDP session issue

This is a basic one folks but addressed something that was driving me NUTS.

I was using Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) and had the bottom of the screen cutoff by my actual physical desktop toolbar even when in full screen (Figure 1 below).

The fix, for me at least, was to go into the RDP settings, move the sizing from full screen to a fixed size, then move the slider back to the full screen setting (Figure 2 below)

I literally was doing all sorts of things before this to fix the issue with no success. It was the only thing that consistently addressed the issue.
