Ability to access taskbar while maximized

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Jul 17, 2012 12:49 am

I searched and didn't find anything on this, is there a way to disable Construct 2's disabling of using the mouse to activate the taskbar when it's maximized? Maybe I overlooked a setting somewhere? Or maybe there's a setting in Windows 7? I'm sure it's a feature some people enjoy but personally it would help my workflow if I could access my taskbar while the program is maximized without having to press the windows key. laice2012-07-17 00:51:07

I'm not sure I've understood correctly. When Construct 2 is running maximized, you can't click on the taskbar?

Edit: Or do you mean when the browser is running fullscreen? That has nothing to do with C2.Nimtrix2012-07-17 01:23:08

When Construct 2 is maximized and I move the mouse cursor down to the taskbar, the taskbar does not appear. It has nothing to do with any browser.

Sounds like a problem with Windows 7 and the "auto-hide taskbar" option. I wouldn't know, I don't use the auto-hide function and don't have access to Win7 right now. Maybe someone could test though, see if it's just your computer or if it's all Win7.

I think it is something specific to Construct 2 because I do not have this issue with any other programs.laice2012-07-17 02:06:41

Oh, yea sorry I wasn't clear, but that's what I meant. It just didn't happen with WinXP so I assumed it was only with Win7.

I just tested on Vista though and it's the same bug you described. Maybe you should post this in the bugs forum?
