Taskbar Button Middle-Click / Open new instance

I'd like report a bug, well, more like inconsistency. When middle clicking an application in task bar on Windows 7, it opens a new instance of the application. So does DisplayFusion, but not with the same launch parameters as the app was launched at first. So, please make DisplayFusion to follow Windows 7 style. It's a bit annoying if you try to open a new instance of an SSH connection, it just opens the connection form instead of the connection.

Solution: instead of just reading the exe, read the current command line too. I know the app can change the command line, but it's better than nothing!

In summary: DF only launches the application when an app is clicked. The launch parameters are ignored.

Could you provide the name of the app you're using for SSH, and the command line you're using for the initial launch? I'd like to do some testing to verify the desired behaviour.

Thanks!

Sure!

PuttyTray, it's available here: http://haanstra.eu/putty/. As for the command line, it's following: "D:\Program Files (x86)\putty.exe" -load tuomi. This loads the tuomi profile, which I have saved earlier, and then instantly connects to it.

EDIT: Side question. When using grouping, if you close a window using the preview X, the preview closes whereas with Windows 7 task bar it stays open.. Is this a known bug?

Ah ok, I see what you mean now :)

This should actually work fine once we've implemented Windows 7 style pinning for the DisplayFusion taskbar, so I've added your vote to that feature request.

Thanks!
