Minimizing and Maximizing Window

Hello Jon,

Thank you for your great software. I would just like to report a small issue that I am facing while trying to minimize and maximize windows from clicking on the application in the taskbar. It seems when you minimize a window and then quickly try to maximize it again (and vice versa), it does not register. I think you can see what I mean by trying to rapidly click on a application on the native windows 7 taskbar and then on yours.

I have tried enabling/disabling windows 7 max/min animations, tweaking taskbar settings and advanced settings in DF with no success.

I did a search on the forums and I came across a post that had the same problem as me since DF 3.0.6 (http://www.binaryfortress.com/Forum/index.php?topic=1104.msg4507#msg4507) which was never solved, so I was wondering if this is a known problem and if there is anyway around it. I also tried Ultramon and it appears that it does not suffer from the same problem. However, I have been using your program for quite a while now and I much prefer yours over Ultramon, so I am hoping you can help me out.

Thanks.

I can confirm this and it bugs me also. Need to wait a half second before clicking again, which is too slow.

Hi Jon,

Just wondering if there has been any progress made regarding this issue? It still persists on the latest v3.3.0 of DisplayFusion.

Furthermore, I would like to add to this matter about an issue when sometimes you click a taskbar window button, it does not respond to either minimize/maximize even when you give it enough time. You can click it however many times you want and it won't respond. You would need to move the mouse pointer to a different area of the taskbar window button for it to respond again. This has been bugging me for quite some time now, and was hoping there would come a fix since I last posted.

I'm experiencing this as well on my secondary monitor.

A few behaviours I've noticed:

- Clicking the icon to minimize or maximize a window will sometimes to nothing
- Right-clicking the icon and selecting minimize/restore/maximize will trigger the correct behaviour
- When I run into this problem, my icons on the secondary toolbar will reorder. I haven't observed a pattern in how it reorders them.
- If I am running a fullscreen application on my main monitor (Remote Desktop), any icons that should appear on my secondary taskbar won't appear until I leave the fullscreen application (minimize or change focus to the second monitor). Similarly, any taskbar notifications (icon flashing) won't trigger until I leave the fullscreen app. I'm not entirely sure if this is a DisplayFusion taskbar issue or a Windows issue. The DF problem may just be an excessive (2 seconds?) delay before the icons appear after they 'ought to'.

I'll adjust the delay in Beta 1 (coming this week) which should help with this. Thanks!
