Lost window controls (close, maximize, minimize, move, restore)

Post by Trianine » Thu Nov 16, 2017 7:20 pm

Somehow I have been losing control of the window functions in Windows 10, and XNViewMP becomes stuck in maximized mode and cannot be closed via the [X], but can be closed normally with a double-click or escape based on user settings.

When trying (alt-space) and selecting the different options to change window location, dimensions, and behavior, the window is still stuck either in minimized or maximized mode. Toggling full-screen via the keyboard shortcut (f11) also appears to have no effect. However, toggling full-screen via xnview right-click options did finally resolve the error for me.

This error has now occurred over three versions of XNViewMP, including the latest .88. Problem persists with restart of windows and after closing the program. No other Windows programs appear to be having this issue. Uninstallation of program does resolve issue, but all settings are lost. I suspect it may be related to a program crash, but don't have enough information.

I am unable to reproduce it willingly. But it has happened again. I came here to find out how I resolved it before and was unable to fix it using the method described above. It appears that the window is in maximized mode, but the windows controls do not reflect this (alt-space) If I select maximize, it seems like the window is restored, and a single fullscreen command will return the window controls. Currently, the window is maximized and the option is greyed out. But that was not the case when controls were stuck.

when you start it, you have always this problem?
