Can't move Desktop app when taskbar on top

Hi all,

I just upgraded to Windows 8. On 7 I had the taskbar on the top (yes I use linux...) and a dock on the bottom, so I did this on Win8. However now the hand cursor doesn't appear when I move my mouse to the top of the screen - it works fine when I have the taskbar on any other side of the screen, just not at the top. This means it's much harder to close - does anyone know a way of getting the hand back? (This also means I can't have the desktop side by side with another app)

Thanks in advance
