Win8 Dev Preview Taskbar Issue

Hi guys!

I'm not sure if you're interested in bug reports from the Windows Developer Preview, but, if so, I think I've found one.

To reproduce:

First, disable the DisplayFusion taskbar and allow Windows to put a taskbar on each monitor (I think it does this by default).
Now, if I use the "Enable middle-click window moving" option, middle-clicking does move the window, but the taskbar icon remains on the original monitor. This also occurs when I use the TitleBar buttons to move the window. Simply grabbing the TitleBar and dragging it to the other monitor correctly moves the taskbar icon.

Hope that makes sense, and if you don't need WDP bug reports yet, then please disregard. And, as usual, THANKS for the great product!

We'd love to hear about any Windows 8 issues people can discover

Some we may not worry about fixing because of stuff that might change, but they're definitely good to hear about. I'll do some testing with the steps you listed and we'll see if we can get it fixed up.

Thanks!

Thanks Keith! You should also know that, if a window is pinned to stay on top, the Win8 Metro interface will still override it, and DF's titlebar buttons are visible through the Metro interface. Again, I know it's WAY early in the game, but thought you'd wanna know.

Just a quick update on this. The taskbar buttons are working correctly with DisplayFusion 4.1 in Windows 8 RTM, and we've fixed up the issue where the TitleBar Buttons were showing through on the Start screen

Thanks!
