VS 2008 window activation under Widows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Since I upgraded to Windows 7 ultimate 64 my VS2008 shows a strange behaviour. My IDE is set to multiple document view. As soon as I click the caption of a document window which has not the focus, it gets maximized. A window which has the focus works normal. That is annoying if you want to drag the window only to another place. Does anybody experience the same behaviour and has probably a solution for that problem? 

    What I tried up to now:
    Prevented windows from beeing automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen.
    Studied the tools and setup options for VS2008 for a solution (no hint)

  • Hi all,

    Just found the reason in my Logitech Keyboard and Mouse driver. I use the Dinovo Keyboard+Mouse Bluetooth combination. The driver made troubles from the first day on. It looses the setup time by time during the work. I disabled the 'enable pre defined application specific button settings' in Setpoint - My Mouse - Advanced settings. The window dragging works normal now.

    Thanks
