    I started having a problem with auto type. I use it for typing password on windows logon window through teamviewer or remote desktop.

    Auto type does work on office 2010 word. Notepad2, notepad++ however, once the always on top feature is turned on, it no longer works on notepad2 or notepad++. The problem is that teamviewer or remote desktop doesnt have always on top feature but auto type doesnt work there. It doesnt type to username or password field.

    It used to work fine. I dont think there were any updates to keepass, teamviewer or remote desktop. Unless one of windows updates started messing things up.

    How could I troubleshoot this?

    If Auto-Type works in Word then it should work everywhere.
    I can reproduce the problem with Notepad++ if you turn on "always on top", so the problem is really with Notepad++.

    This can be deleted. It started working again for some reason.
