1) I mean almost every application. If I open notepad.exe I see it's window but it doesn't appear in the toolbar. Same with calc.exe or whatever. Interesting is that the window comes into the toolbar when you drag it onto another workspace. But when you open a second window there it will again not appear in the toolbar. First I thought it's the configuration of my toolbar. But, as I told, when I start blackbox.exe with already open windows I can see them all in the toolbar, the toolbar is configured right. The algorithm to recognize a new windows seems to be not good.

I'm not sure I get this right, but is by any chancce your taskbar set to hidden? (Rightclick on the desktop > xoblite > Toolbar > Taskbar > ) I have mine set to "Bars+Icon mode" and it works just fine, showing all active windows. And I'm using Win 10 Pro 2004 as well. The only thing I miss about the taskbar is the context menu which I can't manage to activate (if that's possible at all in xobBB5).

Hello all,

 

just dropping by to say that (1) I'm reading all your feedback continuously - thank you!!! :yes:  and (2) I'm busy with IRL stuff at the moment but will reply to you all as soon as I can. Given the many questions this may turn out to be a big dump of reply posts later, but you did ask for it...  :wink:

 

Oh, .exe and .dll updates incoming later as well of course. And maybe yet another plugin...  :whistling: (that is, if Pete actually starts cranking on a forum thing I've requested, preferably before the next ice age...  :wallbash: :wink:

 

Last but certainly not least: Someone asked about donations. While much appreciated, I don't need nor want them personally; this is a labour of love for me and your kind words and helping me spreading the word is enough. However, if you would still like to make a donation, it would mean a whole lot to me if you would consider donating instead to a worthy cause, and a global one that I am personally already supporting is the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) aka Doctors Without Borders, see https://www.msf.org/ (you'll find a link to their regional websites in the upper right hand corner). If you're in Sweden (my home country), you could also consider donating to Naturskyddsföreningen (the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation), see https://www.naturskyddsforeningen.se/ (for information in English, see https://www.natursky...n.se/in-english ). Together we can make the world a better place!!!  :yes:

 

Keep the faith

Of course my taskbar is not hidden. As I already told two times the taskbar shows everything correctly when I start blackbox.exe when other windows from applications already exist. But from that moment on it doesn't show the most new opened windows.

 

BTW: this setting "Bars+Icon mode" is not persistent. Again and again it resets itself to "Bars", the icons disappear. And I never see real icons, I see only a symbol, darkgray on black.

 Hi xoblite,

 

thanks for addressing my question about donations. It's very honorable of you to reject donations and instead ask us to donate to a good cause or institution (if we want to). I for one, tried to donate to Naturskyddsföreningen but failed due to the site not being translated properly. So I decided to spend the money I would've sent you to Doctors without Borders. I won't say how much it was because I don't want to make anybody who also donated look/feel greedy if they donate less than I did. :)

 

Looking forward to your replies to all our other questions but, please, take the time you need. We all got a live outside the blackbox ;)

That's strange. For me it's persistent and I assume that it's meant to be. Does any option stay the way you set it or do the all get back to default after reboot? Sounds to me as if xoblite doesn't have all needed read/write rights on your system.

My suggestion is: Try starting it with Adminstrator rights just to see if having more right makes a difference.

In the next release can you add an option to completely hide the explorer taskbar, no matter what?

 

And an option to disable/hide the workspace indicator would also be nice. Thanks for your hard work!

Unfortunately, when I hover over where the taskbar was, it shows and doesn't hide again. Could be a bug? My taskbar isn't on my primary monitor, maybe that has something to do with it.

Off course, you can always use Window's Hide Toolbar option.
