I tried emacs-25-20161227T071030Z-bin-i686-mingw32.7z in:

(make-frame '((left . 0) (top . 0)))
launches a new frame on the top-left corner of the *lower* screen,
the position and the size are:
((top . 0) (left . 0) (width . 80) (height . 36))
It varies to
((top + -1076) (left + -258) (width . 80) (height . 36))
after moving it to the top-left corner of the upper screen.
I feel it a very good behavior.

As for the eclipse of the bottom of an Emacs frame by the task-
bar, it doesn't happen by default.  However, it seems to be due
to the size of the default font.  The default font is somewhat
small to me, so I tried:

   . "-outline-Arial Unicode 

After that, a new frame got too tall, so I think I still need
a workaround like this:

(defadvice make-frame (after shrink-frame-height activate)
  "Shrink the height of a new frame."
  (sit-for 0)
  (if (> (frame-parameter ad-return-value 'height) 30)
      (modify-frame-parameters ad-return-value '((height . 30)))))
