Well, today (version 1.6-1805), on empty desktop, sometimes Dexpot Manager's icon still appear in Dexpot Manager as current active window. Why you can't just add some check:
Code: Select all
if (active_window_class != "ThunderRT6FormDC" && active_window_title != "Dexpot - Desktop Manager") { show active window icon }

So, I'm saying to add this class/title to desktop manager's exception list as classes/+windows-titles:
Code: Select all
Progman/"Program Manager", WorkerW, Shell_TrayWnd, Static

by default, Dexpot moves all applications to the current desktop on exit. If any window needs your attention, it will pop up a prompt.

Found out when it shows the Dexpot icon. Let's see if we can fix that. Thanks for reporting.

we don't find that disturbing.

For example, I want to shut down or restart Windows. And want to be shure I haven't forggotten running applications on over desktops. I can press hotkeys to switch over all desktops, or desktop prewiew, or DexTab. Or just _watch_ at the edge of the screen at Desktop Manager.

When exactly?

Where are no active desktop windows, desktop manager's allways-on-top window - I don't think it's about it. And it is hard to reproduce, some times then I minimize windows in the taskbar, but most of time not.

Well, may be all this isn't needed.

Also, sometimes Dexpot's icon appears than there are no Dexpot's windows in taskbar, don't know why, this should be fixed too.

When exactly? Are you sure that no Dexpot window was last active?

tried option 'Show icons of active windows' (the only difference regarding your suggestion: shows the standard icon only if desktop is empty)?

I found out what the Desktop Manager component is much useful than even Taskbar Pager plugin. I think this is kind of Win7 taskbar-icons, but for desktops, which is cool!

I suggest to keep last active window icon on it. If where are application in the task bar of current desktop, and you minimize them all - the empty desktop icon appear (monitor icon with "1", "2", "3"), but I want to know this desktop is busy, is in use and the last used (on this desktop) application icon (last active window icon) is shown. That could be an option, checkbox.

I guest you understend that I was trying to say. Anyway, great work guys!
