Provide an option to hide hidden windows in preview window

One minor annoyance I have with Dexpot (although it once was of unique value) has to do with "hidden windows". There are some applications that create windows that don't result in a vislble window being displayed on the desktop. However, even though I don't see the window on the desktop, I...

Gotomeeting windows not shown in Preview window

I've started to use GotoMeeting, and I noticed that Dexpot does not show GotoMeeting windows in the Preview window. I find it listed in all the other renderings, just not the Preview window, so it makes it difficult to move it to another desktop. Update : Actually, there's another symptom I was just...

Re: Change keyboard focus on move to new desktop

Note that having "hover focus" solves this particular problem, but is an annoyance in itself. For instance, when Outlook spawns meeting reminder dialogs, if I don't move the mouse to that window immediately, the window gets hidden. I then have to move the mouse back to the status bar to ge...

Re: Change keyboard focus on move to new desktop

I guess I've essentially resolved this with a setting in Windows Seven: Having a window take focus when the mouse hovers over it (Ease of Access Center).

Change keyboard focus on move to new desktop

It seems to me that there was a time that when I would switch to a new desktop, that Dexpot would change the window with keyboard focus from the old window to the "primary" window in the new desktop. This doesn't happen anymore. I don't know if this went away in a previous version, or it h...

Re: What did I change that made icons different on each desk

What's curious is that when I look in "c:\Users\<me>\Desktop" I see what appears to be all of the icons I appear to be missing. I also looked at the few icons that ARE displaying on my desktop, which are placed approximately where I placed them, and NONE of them are listed in that folder. ...

Re: What did I change that made icons different on each desk

Sigh. I've reverted that, but it looks like most of my desktop icons are gone. This is odd, because I use a tool for saving my icons placement, and "Restore"ing that doesn't do anything.

What did I change that made icons different on each desktop?

I don't know what I did, but I think there was some dialog that was presented to me with something about a choice for "icons", and now I have a different layout of icons on each desktop. What is that option? I want it back the way it was.

Windows getting hidden very often

On my old slow Win7 laptop, I often had issues with Dexpot that seemed likely due to the slowness of that laptop. I'm now using a much faster Win7 laptop, so many of those things that seemed like race conditions aren't happening anymore. However, even on this faster laptop, I'm seeing windows gettin...

Re: Desktop Preview goes away many times a day

I would say that I still haven't seen it lose the preview window again. However, one slightly important thing happened since I started it running that I should have mentioned. I've been transitioning to a new faster laptop. I did install the debugging version on the old laptop, but I don't do much w...

Re: Desktop Preview goes away many times a day

It's curious that since I installed this version, which I assume only has debugging changes, I haven't seen this happen.

Desktop Preview goes away many times a day

This is just a repeat of the problem I've had ever since I started using Dexpot, but I thought I would try again. Numerous times every day, when I move to another desktop, the "Desktop Preview" window goes away and doesn't come back. When I then select "Desktop Preview" from the ...

Re: Eclipse window won't appear in preview or status bar

I realized that one of those windows was seeing the same symptom, and that it had probably been happening for a couple of days now. I ...

Eclipse window won't appear in preview or status bar

I occasionally see a symptom where when I switch back to a desktop the window I expect to see there is not present, but it's still showing in the status bar (I have "keep all taskbar buttons visible" set). When this happens, I generally hover the mouse on the icon in the status bar, let th...

Ok, I'll try that, but I only rarely use full screen windows. I've seen it go away many times without encountering any full-screen windows.

Desktop Preview goes away many times a day

I have only two issues with Dexpot: * Windows often get cloned to other workspaces when "walking through them" * Desktop Preview just "goes away" many times a day I've posted about the first problem several times, but I'm resigned to that. I would guess that it's probably due to ...

Re: Sometimes windows become to appear on more than one desk

I've tried both that setting and "Nothing", and probably others, and I don't think I've really ever seen any difference. Most windows behave normally, and some windows sometimes get duplicated to other desktops.

This latest test version didn't make any difference.
