Unexpected taskbar right-click behavior

Running 3.3.0.119. I have encountered two unexpected behaviors when right-clicking taskbar icons on a DF taskbar.

1. Right-clicking a group of icons does not display a menu.
2. Right-clicking a single icon shows the window before displaying the menu, even if the window is minimized.

Sorry if these have been mentioned. I did search and couldn't find anything relevant.

Hi deanis,

For #1, we've got a feature request in for showing the standard Windows 7 jumplists on the DisplayFusion taskbar icons, but we're still working out the details. I've added your vote to the feature request.

For #2, we've made the delay for the thumbnail previews a bit longer, which should prevent the preview popping up at the same time as right clicking. If it's still not working quite the way you like it, you can set the thumbnail preview delay using the "Taskbar: Thumbnail Preview Delay" Advanced setting. The new default is 400ms, so you could try increasing it to 500ms or higher.

Thanks!

#1 - That would be perfect.

#2 - It's not the preview that displays, it's the actual application window. This happens even if the application window is minimized.

Ah! Yes, I didn't notice that :) I'll see if we can get it fixed up for the next version.

Thanks!

Just a quick note on this. The window actually has to be shown in order for us to display the right-click menu. We will be working on some improvements to the taskbar right-click menus though that may change this behaviour.

Thanks!

Hehe, that change doesn't have anything to do with the right-click menus

Eventually we'll get it to operate more like the Windows 7 taskbar, it's just a big undertaking and we need to make sure we can implement it without causing any other issues
