Re: Should I attempt to use Dexpot on new Windows install?

It's a little buggy , but I open a Crapload of windows in multiple apps, and use a few desktops actively, with little issues Windows sometimes stay hidden between switches but that isnt an win 10 issue, it happ in win 7 too I'd say, if you like Dexpot , give it a try under w10 Shame the developer is...

Windows not unhiding on desktop switch

Using dexpot under w10, with much success. A problem that is chronic, when you have many windows (stock trading) is random windows not responding to the signal to reappear, when switching desktops Have to go to the windows log, and manually unhide them Already give realtime priority to the Dexpot ex...

Re: Using Firefox with Dexpot

Solution 1: Use the Desktop preview to access the window to move it .

Solution 2: Assign a hotkey to Move or whatever you need. Works fine!

Dexpot rocks !

Re: Should I attempt to use Dexpot on new Windows install?

Decided to go ahead and try it.

The W10 VD is so bad, I could not bear the thought of using it

So far , not bad. Seeing some weirdness with the Windows search feature. Not allowing me to type into it at the moment

Should I attempt to use Dexpot on new Windows install?

The built in Virtual desktop feature is an embarrassment to Microsoft. Already having problems with apps that behaved under Win 7 and Dexpot , not doing so under Win 10, in a new computer build. I am concerned that there has been no new version for a long time, and don't want to have to deal with in...

Re: Future of Dexpot

Been using Dexpot for many years. Windows 7. Would be a shame if it stopped working in some future incarnation of Windows.

It's not hard to use at all once you work with it for a short while.

Alt-Tab sometimes makes all windows minimize

Having this issue for some time. Not sure if its a Windows 7 problem or possible Dexpot.

At random times, pressing Alt-Tab causes all the windows on a desktop to minimize. Multiple apps. Mostly it works as it should, but it does this often enough to be annoying.

Anyone else ever see this?

Desktops 2.0 and Dexpot (compatability)

I am a long time user of Dexpot, and was just reading about the native Windows virtual desktop app Desktops 2.0.

Before I waste time looking at that (not as a replacement for Dexpot, but as a possible enhancement) is it compatible? Can you run both simultaneously?

Re: Some windows appearing on all desktops

I'm a long time happy Dexpot user, and just loaded it onto a new laptop. Ver 1.6.14. Running Windows 8.1 x64 My main PC is running version 1.6.13, and Windows 7 x64 just so you know. I have an app written in Java (Thinkorswim) which behaves fine on my PC where it only shows up on the desktop I've as...

Re: Windows getting hidden very often

I had the same problem for a long time, but lately it's gone away, using the same set of apps , but later versions of dexpot. I don't know if fixes were done or not, but the problem can be very annoying. now , thankfully, it's rare to lose a window to the hidden state. There was some thought that if...

Re: Windows not unhiding poperly

The Autoit pgm loads data every 45-60 seconds, and YES, while loading web data the app is basically not going to respond well to mouse action. If there's a problem loading a page (slow server), it can hang for some time. I'm thinking that if its in the 'loading state' for too long when its asked to ...

Re: Windows not unhiding poperly

I tried given each instance a different name, seemed to help a bit, but not significant (as expected). I think it might have to do with the app being in a busy state (loading web page) when the unhide is requested, and it ignores or doesnt see the request. I'll try to get a log of this, though I usu...

Re: Windows not unhiding poperly

Any idea on how to track down the issue, its quite a nuisance. All 4 instances have the same 'name' in task manager, could that have anything to do with it or is that irrelevant ?

Re: Windows not unhiding poperly

Look like we discussed this before. Did a quick test when the pc was not under much 'cpu load' . Seems to NOT happen under quiet conditions. Does that give you a clue? Possible some timeout within dexpot? Was thinking a workaround might be a 'rule' that would unhide specific apps or window names. As...

Win 7 x64 latest updates Latest Dexpot, problem in all recent versions Application Assign to window seems a bit more robust than the same instruction using Desktop Rules for some of my other apps.

Windows not unhiding poperly

I run quite a few apps at the same time, quotetracker, thinkorswim, all very window intensive Dexpot has always done a great job managing all this, but lately , Im have problems with windows remaining in the 'hidden' state when switching. Using assign apps has helped. But I run 4 instances of a cust...
