  • Bug: TaskbarXI crashed Windows 11

    Bug: TaskbarXI crashed Windows 11

    Here is the thing: The taskbar when with TaskbarXI is a little buggy (that's what I was gonna report but there is already a report on that) especially when no window is full screen. Out of curiosity, I just restarted explorer.exe to see if it would make thing any better. Then explorer crashed and after that my whole computer crashed and rebooted into safe mode. :(

  • Order of expand animation

    Order of expand animation

    When I open an application that is not pinned the animation looks phenomenal. However when i close that application the animation is exactly the same but reversed. the problem with this is hard to explain with words but basically the taskbar is shrinking before the app can close and the other pinned apps slide in. when opening an unpinned app it looks great because the taskbar scales up first but when it closes the taskbar should scale down after. I didn't look at your code and I don't even know any C++ so idk how hard this will be to accomplish.

  • Janky animation

    Janky animation

    I like that the taskbar goes back to the full length when you open a window (i think showing the desktop when a window is maximized would look pretty weird) but I suggest adding a smoother animation when the taskbar goes back to normal. It is a bit janky rn with the taskbar kind of snapping back to normal. Otherwise this is a fantastic little tool and I defiantly prefer this over the normal taskbar. Keep it up! 👍

  • Not Sure How To Find .Exe File

    Not Sure How To Find .Exe File

    Hello,

    I came across your Github project and I'm excited to use it. However, when I download the zip file I can't seem to find the .exe file in the extracted folder. I see two separate downloads, one for the zip and one for the .exe. However, when I download the .exe file, I get an error message.

    Could you please help me figure this out so I can try the software? I will appreciate any help.

    Thanks, Benny

    fix GDI leaks that case app crashing

    I work for the Microsoft Graphics team, and I notice that your app is leaking GDI objects. These leaks make your app crash suddenly on the user. Once your all use all quotes for GDI object per process because of the leak the app will crash. Please fix/verify PR as soon as possible. I address leaks as much as I can I am not sure I address all leaks please find other leaks if there are any and fix them, your app is a good and nice App.

    Leak issue fixed

    When you use CombineRgn to combine three areas CombineRgn(region_Both, region_ShellTrayWnd, region_TrayNotifyWnd, RGN_OR); you need delete the old two (region_ShellTrayWnd, region_TrayNotifyWnd) since nobody can delete them. Even SetWindowRgn going to delete new area region_Both only old you need to delete them Thanks Hussein

    Hello! First off, I would like to thank everyone who worked on this program. You all are amazing!

    Windows has finally added support for displaying the clock on other displays. However, when TaskbarXI is activated, the clock on the extra display does not show up, as shown below: after

    When the taskbar is shown in full though, it appears like normal: show up clock

    Somehow the taskbar doesn't stay on the desktop if clicked anywhere. Before installing the app, the settings had the 'Lock the Taskbar' option which kept the taskbar pinned while on desktop page. Issue persists even after uninstalling. Please fix this or suggest a way around.
