Tree view reopens after minimizing

    Since upgrading to version 3.5.02, the tree view of my passwords reopens every time I minimize PasswordSafe, either by clicking the minimize button or by using Autoplay to enter a username and password. Interestingly, it's the third group that reopens for one of my databases, and the first group for another. The settings on the Options | Display page are as follows:

    Top section, all unchecked except for
    [x] Show password in add & edit

    Bottom section, Initial tree view, selection is
    (o) Fully collapsed

    I haven't found any settings that seem to matter. Suggestions?

    Still a problem in v3.27. Not a major issue but still annoying.

    Still a problem in v3.33 and I find this extremely annoying.

    This problem is almost as old as the product. It has been brought up umpteen times but has never been fixed.

    Is this (one of) the latest bugs concerning PWS not keeping its tree view when program is minimized & re-opened?

    Before I added a comment on 6/7/2014, had been no updates on bug's status since 7/2012.

    The most irritating scenario is when the GUI is minimized & reopened, it expands several folders that weren't open. Forcing a lot of scrolling to find the last entry used. One case would be when testing entries & autotype, or an attempt to login fails & you need the same entry to try again.

      I see that too and I guess others do. Happy to try and help with test cases but I guess this might be a tricky one to fix.

    I'm not a (very good) coder, so don't know how tricky it'd be.
    MS Explorer seems to have saving the same tree view when it's closed / reopened down to a science.
    I don't believe Keepass has this problem - not positive. If not, maybe could get some ideas there.

    V3.36 -- I still have this problem. I'm wondering whether the installing method is significant: I installed PWS as a stand-alone, not using the registry.
