XYplorer changes windows 10's virtual desktop to the one it is executed when a window is closed on a different desktop.

Postby SrAlloza » 11 May 2018 12:36

I use windows 10 and its virtual desktops. The problem is that if I have XYplorer opened in a virtual desktop (it doesn't matter if it is in the background) and I close a window in a different virtual desktop (or a window closes by itself), the view is automatically moved to the virtual desktop where XYplorer is running, and XYplorer is shown in the foreground even if it was in the background.

The only situation in which this doesn't happen is if I mannualy minimize XYplorer or I don't have it opened.
This issue happens even if I push the "show desktop" button, located on windows in the lower right corner.

I'm running XYplorer 18.90.0100 on windows 10, x64

Mysterious. XYplorer does not push itself into the foreground, at least that's not in the code. So I think Windows does it, but why? Don't know. :|

I confirm I see some weird desktop movements when XYplorer is opened. For instance:
  • No window is opened
  • Type Win+Tab
  • Click on "New Desktop"
  • Click on "Desktop 2"
  • The view is switched to Desktop 2 :tup:
But :
  • XYplorer is opened
  • Type Win+Tab
  • Click on "New Desktop"
  • Click on "Desktop 2"
  • The view is switched to Desktop 2 and instantly switched back to Desktop 1 :bug:
  • Every time I try to go to Desktop 2 using the mouse, the view is instantly switched back to Desktop 1 :bug:
  • The only way to go to Desktop 2 is to use the shortcut Ctrl+Win+RightArrow

Win 10 1803, XYplorer 18.90.0100

Apart from the bug I reported, I confirm this happens too

Has any of you set the HotKeyShowApp tweak in XYplorer?

OK. Anyway, the next version has a tiny change that might fix it.

I tried with v18.90.0130, and I still got the same behavior.

Confirmed, same Windows version (64 bits)
Software: should we be aware because it's soft ? I like to think not !
