Sorry for this, I know the answer to this question is somewhere - I've seen it before, but paid no attention - but I can't bloody find it again.
I'm running LS 0.24.7 RC3 on an XP box, and whenever I maximize windows and then switch desktop, the maximized window follows me. Actually, it only follows me as I move "up" the desktop list (from 1>2, 2>3, etc.) but not "down". It's frustrating as hell, and I know there's a simple solution, but like I said, I can't find it. I've dug through the docs, the .rc files, and Googled, but come up empty. Odds are good I glazed over for the precise moment it was on-screen in a readme or something...
Thanks in advance
have you tried searching the forum?
Yeah I did, but all I found was page after page of irrelevant results.
really...cause I just searched for "maximized" and I found a relevant result. the 4th one, actually...
I think you misunderstood my question. I just searched for "maximized" and looked at every single result and none were relevant. I don't need any sort of "SetDesktopArea" thing or any of that. How about instead of insinuating I'm an idiot, you perhaps link me to this supposed relevant response?
did u check the docs of your vwm module?
Yeah, nothing there at all that could help. Thanks though.
The problem you described is a bug in Windows code. Most people find that by turning off styles in XP fixes it. There is a work around implemented in ckvwm.dll. I do not recall if rabidvwm has implemented this work around yet. If you are using bangvwm.dll, you can remove the bVWMKeepMaximized setting to fix the issue.
I've just discovered I have the same problem, turning of XP styles works fine, and also makes everything look more like good old Win98 :D
ckvwm does fix it, but rabidcow hasn't released a fix for rabidvwm yet. also, as i said, the fourth result for a search with the keyword "maximized" covers this.
well, guess im having this bug too, but my syles service is deactivated anyway since im using windowblinds :P
