#1026 Possible to see contents of locked Keepass


The password file is pinned to my taskbar. Mousing over the icon will show a preview of the window. However, if the minimize happens before the database is locked, the preview will show the contents of the Keepass window. This occurs:
a) Every time the window is minimized and it's set to lock on minimize
b) Manual lock where the main window is set to minimize on lock
c) Timed lock (where the main window always minimizes on lock)

Note that you may have to display the preview of the unlocked workspace first if you're minimizing/locking shortly after unlocking.

I can circumvent the problem by:
1) Enabling the minimize to tray setting
2) Not using timed lock
3) Using manual lock and disabling minimize on lock

Keepass: Portable 1.23
OS: Win7 Ultimate x64 SP1

    Ah, I only searched the bug tracker. Still, the last post in that topic indicates that the preview should have been disabled several versions ago.

    KeePass disables the peek preview (this is the large preview that is usually displayed when hovering over the thumbnail). I still haven't found any way to disable the thumbnail.

    Best regards
