Hello,

First of all, great tool you created here.
I created a sort of Powershell (v3) desktop background with it.
All bars, show statusbar and buttons are disabled, and I docked it at the Top Right.

The only downside is that when pressing WinKey+D, it disapears. Perhaps the solution is choosing 'Pinned to Desktop' from the 'Z Order', but when I do so, the console does never show up again. I had to restored the setting by setting the value back to 0 in the XML settingsfile.

I hope you are able to fix this or bring the feature on, if I want to do something that is not possible.

Thanks!

Niels

    Hmmm, I noticed the comment in the Helpfile that sais 'Pinned to Desktop' only works with the Windows Explorer.

    Whoops, sorry :P

     
  • Yeah, 'Pinned to desktop' basically means making Console window a desktop window's child. This way, it's always on top of it, but underneath any other window.

    To set a child window, Console needs to know at least something about the parent window it's targeting (name, window class).
