Application stays minimized in the taskbar RRS feed

  • คำถาม

  • Hi all,
    I have an installation of Windows Vista Home premium 64bit SP1 on my home computer and I've recognized following problem: some applications after start remain minimized in the taskbar and can be closed only. The application window cannot be maximized and does not appear if I click on the taskbar application button. It is strange, because some applications (the majority) don't have this behaviour and work properly, but some of them behave like this and don't display its windows. If I run mouse cursor over the taskbar button, an icon with window preview appears (and in this view can be seen that the application works), but I don't have the possibility to show the application window.
    Have anyone recognized similar problem and does anyone know how to fix it ?
    Many thanks in advance for your replies.

  • I do not if it will work for you but when I get problems where all the windows are minimized and none maximize, I have clicked on the Desktop icon in the Quick Launch, and then I can click on the running applications in the task bar to maximize as they should.

    So if you have not done so, enable Quick Launch in the task bar and I prefer not to use the Taskbar Previews thing (its useless and totally pointless for me).

    Another trick when a window wont maximize is to right click it on the task bar and do Restore rather than Maximize (sometimes that works)

  • Hi,


    If the issue does not occur on all of the program icons on the Notification Area, maybe the problematic programs are corrupt, or not compatible. Another possibility is that they are blocked by some programs. In this case, I suggest that you disable the anti-virus. If the issue still occurs, reinstall the problematic programs. If the If the issue persists after you reinstall them, the problematic programs are not corrupt with Windows Vista 64bit systems. I suggest that you contact the publisher or related forum to confirm this situation.
