Avant reduces to desktop instead of taskbar

Post by Rimsey » Sat Sep 23, 2006 11:03 am

Avant reduces to desktop instead of taskbar, also it does not show in the taskbar at all when open.

Its REALLY REALLY annoying!

I dont use the tasktray options (I hate task-tray sh*te).

So basically if you have avant open and somethng else covers the window you cannot access it unless you close the covering application.

Even when its reduced if you have something covering the desktop then you cant access Avant.

Sort of goes against all the fundamentals of windows programming.

Have you checked "Show Avant Browser in Taskbar (need to restart Avant Browser)" in the tray options?

Ah right... well that now works ... so I guess the bug report has changed...

Its now. When "tray options" is de-selected it also disables the "Show Avant Browser in Taskbar" option, thus making the user think that without tray options enabled then the taskbar option will not work.

thanks for your help.

Enable tray icon, than check "Show Avant Browser in Taskbar" and disable tray icon again should fix your problem.

Yes, see your first post, it was moved since your first post was about where Avant was minimizing, not the function of the options check mark. (...which has been confirmed before, so I was just waiting to get a chance to start an actual thread on that issue. Actually, the delay was getting time to look up the old posts, but I guess we could just link back to here.)
