Re: Window name overwriting itself

Hi Sebastian

My WInXP/SP3 is so fragile I have not upgraded Dexpot from 1.5. I will try 1.6.

Thank you.

Context menu entries

How can I remove the context menu entries which say the following? I think I must have enabled a setting by mistake but where is it? Thank you.

"Save Desktop Icon Layout"
"Restore Desktop Icon Layout"


I do not have "DesktopOK" installed.

Window name overwriting itself

Is there a way to prevent the desktop window name overwriting itself when I change desktops in Dexpot? After a few switches of the desktop window, the accumulated characters are unreadable. I mean the name assigned in the "Configure Desktops" dialog on the "Properties" tab. This ...

I am using Dexpot 1.5.5 on WinXP. (Yes, I know it's old!) Recently, when I launch my notepad application (Axelpad) it has "ontop" set. In other words, the Window stays ontop of all other application Windows. Is this something which Dexpot is controlling? Can I set something in Dexpot to di...

Hello Patrick, I tried that but when I restored my usual profile it did not put the icons on the correct Dexpot screens.
