does it seem like you are experiencing this bug: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=10455.0
No, I was seeing that one only on my notebook which is running Vista Ultimate. Never saw it on the Desktop running XP though.
What is happening now is that the default window for SC on the XP machine is only about 200 x 200 pixels; not enough to see much at all! It used to be roughly 800 x 600 pixels, maybe a bit smaller. Now I always have to drag the corner of the window to get it big enough to see anything. Once that's done it is fine - until I reboot. Then it's back to the little window.
can you tell me what your General Settings tab checkboxes are set to?
(ie: Start Minimized? Close to Tray? Inactive Memory Use?)
I'm on my notebook now so I'll have to post back with that. However to be honest I don't know that the settings will matter: I use Chameleon Startup Manager and that overrides such settings. And it actually does a poor job of it, at that. Almost every program that used
to start minimized or hidden on its own starts maximized once you install Chameleon. I wrote the developer and he claims he's not seeing that on HIS computer - as if I care about his computer!! I have seen this same behavior with Chameleon Startup Manager on three separate computers now: Two XP Pro and one Vista Ultimate. Shortly after startup or a reboot, I spend another minute closing all the open application windows!
BTW, that's the least of Chameleon's annoyances; I'm looking hard for a better startup manager solution. Know any?
