Minimize/Restore Animation: Animates to primary taskbar, not DF's taskbar.

The minimize/restore animation is a very help UI clue. It aids in remembering where on a taskbar an application is without specifically needing to look at the icon.

Unfortunately, this aid is broken when using DF's taskbar. The animation points to the primary taskbar's start button. This is very confusing behavior and constantly drives me to look for an application on the wrong task bar.

Is this a WinAPI limitation or something that can be patched in DF?

Its a limitation afaik, but many jsut straight turn off the effect to eliminate any confusion.

Unfortunately Kevin is correct. :( This is a Windows limitation, and the only way to avoid this is to disable window animations.

Thank you for the update. I am shocked the animation can't have a target point. :(

It really upsets me how Microsoft cripples the multi monitor support in Windows.

It's funny, even at this late date, Microsoft almost completely ignores dual monitor setups. Here at my company with over 350 employees, nearly everyone has dual monitors and would bet most people at Microsoft do too.

I know, it's frustrating, but DisplayFusion does it's best to work around Windows' lack of multi-monitor support.
