Right click on searh bar and click "Edit Skin". A Notepad document will open, scroll to find the [DefaultText] variables. Higher up than the "Text="Google"" variable, there are x and y variables, which position the "Google" text. Y variable is 8 by default, making it 7 will probably solve the low text problem. You can also change the "Google" text's size, or change the text itself completely (I made it "Google Search" for example) or even leave it blank so there will be only magnifying lens. After all that, don't forget to Ctrl+S so changes you made are saved. After closing the Skin properties, right click the search bar again and "Refresh Skin". All done.
