No thumbnails (small desktops) on the taskbar.
Function keys work OK.
Right-click menus working OK.
Desktop switching (hiding/showing windows) works OK.
I can confirm this behaviour in Windows 8 Pro (64bit).
I might try to take a look in the source code later on but I doubt it'll be "that easy" for me to go through the code.
Hi, I just got Windows 8 and am having a go at installing Windowspager (I had it on Win7 and loved it). The thumbnails aren't showing up on the taskbar for me either... any advice? I prefer this virtual desktop to the others because it's so similar to what I use on Linux, but if there's another one as straight-forward to use for Win8, please let me know.
I was able to get the taskbar overlay thumbnails to appear by using the Windows 7 compatibility mode setting of windowspager.exe. Right click on the executable, select properties, then Compatibility tab.
