    Another very odd question. What are you going to do with the top half? What are you ACTUALLY trying to do? You can certainly write an application that takes over the top half of the screen and moves the desktop icons down. Some of the virtual screen apps do that to make their "bars" visible. Look at goScreen, for example.

    I just don't understand why people want to go to the kernel first.

    The time of WDDM Filter Hook drivers is over now (once and forever). Quite some time ago, WDDM introduced various non-hookable features (e.g. Hardware Command Queue). The crash rate of WDDM Filter Hook drivers is now increasing as does the usage of non-hookable features (especially since Windows 10 1903). All relevant vendors have meanwhile replaced their previous WDDM Filter Hook drivers with WDDM IddCx Indirect Display drivers.
