How can I make the system tray tooltips appear over the taskbar?

Sometimes when you set the Taskbar to appear "Always on Top" (or: "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows"), then the tooltips for the icons in the system tray will be hidden behind the Taskbar.

One way (which I admit, didn't work for me) is to turn that setting on and off, pressing Apply between changes.

Another way is to install the ToolTipFixer (I got it from which will fix the problem.
