Wed, 08 Nov 2023 03:16:52 GMT
Product: StartAllBack (Versions 3.6.16 and 3.7 beta)
Edition: Windows 11 Home
Installed on: 2023-07-18
OS build: 22631.2506
Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22677.1000.0
After the recent update of Windows 11 specified above, the 'Task View' feature fails to operate when the taskbar is set to the 'Left' or 'Right' screen location using StartAllBack versions 3.6.16 and 3.7 beta. The feature works normally when the taskbar is positioned at the 'Bottom' or 'Top' of the screen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install or update to StartAllBack version 3.6.16 or 3.7 beta on the Windows 11 Home edition, version 23H2, OS build 22631.2506.
2. Position the taskbar on the 'Left' or 'Right' side of the screen using in StartAllBack -> Taskbar -> Tweak behavior and superpower settings.
3. Attempt to use the 'Task View' feature by clicking the Task View button or using the Win+Tab shortcut.
The Task View interface should appear, showing all open windows and virtual desktops.
The Task View interface does not appear. There is no response from the system when attempting to use the Task View feature.
The issue occurs every time the taskbar is set to the 'Left' or 'Right' position.

I don't reproduce this. Do you use exotic multi-mon / taskbar config?

Thank you for the response. I'm not using an exotic taskbar setup; however, I am on a triple-monitor setup with 4K resolution, with the central screen set as the main display and one in portrait mode.
The Task View issue only arises when the taskbar is on the left or right side of the middle monitor. It functions correctly when placed at the top or bottom.
I think this suggests a specific issue with the left or right taskbar placement in a multi-monitor configuration, when the lateral sidebar placement is adjacent to the other monitor or monitors. As I mentioned in the opening report, it worked in the very previous Win 11 distribution.
Thank you for looking into this. I hope that fix is as close to a trivial one-liner as possible!
Screenshots are attached for clarity.

Just checking in for any updates on the Task View problem when using StartAllBack with the taskbar on the left or right location, specifically in a multi-monitor setup.

Sorry, I'm not able to reproduce the issue
