Forums -> UltraMon™ -> "Show the desktop on monitor with mouse" odd behaviour
Mike Vanderkley   2012-01-08 08:52

I have been setting up the hotkey: "Show the desktop on monitor with mouse".

I am seeing some odd behaviour and am wondering if the feature is working correctly.

In my test I have 2 monitors, A & B.

On both monitors I have a number of apps where there are similar instances loaded. For example, on both monitors I have chrome loaded.

Monitor A: [SHOW_DESKTOP], success
Monitor B: [SHOW_DESKTOP], fail - MonitorB does show desktop, rather, MonitorA [RESTORE]s. Even stranger, a different application is now in front on MonitorA.

Sorry, typo in test.

Monitor B: [SHOW_DESKTOP], fail - MonitorB **DOES NOT** show desktop .....

Thanks for the bug report, this is due to the hotkey acting as a toggle, it will first minimize windows, then restore them again.

I'll look into this for a later release, UltraMon should treat each monitor separately, meaning the windows would only get restored if the mouse is still on monitor A when you press the hotkey again.

To add to this. The restore behaviour appears to cycle between the last two programs on the taskbar when it should remember the original top one shown.

To replicate, open 3 programs of different types. Perform Monitor_Show_Desktop on/off a number of times and you will see the last two programs sharing who becomes the fore-front.
