Winmove not working on windows 10

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

first of all i searched in the forum but i didn't found any solution to my problem.

I am using windows 10.

I made a script that is supposed to change the title to the active window, resize it to the smallest size possible (should be around 800 x 600) and move to (0, 0).

I can change the title but i fail to do the other 2 tasks.

i use wingettitle [active] copied from the F1 help tool (and this works), i i put the title in a variable and than i use

winsettitle ($variable, "one") (this works too)

winmove ("one", 0, 0, 800, 600) (doesn't do anything)

i also tried

local $x = winget ( "one")

msgbox (0, "", $x) (i get a completely white box so i suppose winget can't have any data about my window ??)

any suggestion ?

I would suggest something like this --

$hWnd = WinGetHandle("[Active]")
WinSetTitle($hWnd, "new title")
WinMove($hwnd, "", 0, 0, 800, 600)

I tried this and it works, but not completly, it doesn't get resized, but it get moved to the top left corner. I have to double click on the window title to see it resized and i have a little spaze like 3-4 mm from the monitor left border to my window left border.

Have you tried using different values for the width and height parameters?

Is there a reason you aren't using WinSetState to maximize the window?

Please ignore the last post i updated the page and posted it twice.

i tried using another size yes, but no difference, it works but it doesn't resize immediatly the window.

 

im not so expert in the use of autoit, so no there is no specific reason why i am not using winsetstate.

i don't know what winsetstate does but i will check it when i will back home.

      I have a script that autostart with Windows, and sometimes some of my code is skipped. My script takes long pauses, so it's not that the script "goes too fast". This is my script for now:
      TraySetIcon("C:\Portables\AutoIt\_\icon.ico") AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Run("C:\Portables\Key Manager\keymanager.exe") WinActivate("ATNSOFT Key Manager v") WinWaitActive("ATNSOFT Key Manager v") WinMove("ATNSOFT Key Manager v", "", 650, 200, 600, 800) Sleep(500) $pos = MouseGetPos() MouseClick("left", 1220, 210, 1, 100) MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1], 100) Run("C:\Portables\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe") $version = 298 For $i = 0 To 99 Step 1 $path = "C:\Users\spunit\AppData\Local\Discord\app-0.0." & $version + $i & "\Discord.exe" If FileExists($path) Then Run($path) ExitLoop EndIf Next Run("C:\Portables\Firefox\FirefoxPortable.exe") Sleep(10000) WinMove("- Mozilla Firefox", "", 205, 0, 1214, 1047) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 1300, 15, 1, 10) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 1130, 275, 1, 10) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 930, 105, 1, 10) Sleep(100) Send("#{m}") Sometimes it skips to click and move mouse right after Key Manager starts. Almost always it skips everything after the last run.

      This type of script were never an issue with Windows 7... Any thoughts?

      I can not do anything with any user in the "Local Users Group"
      I tried from my account but I could not change my password (ie set new password)!
      But I was able to activate the Administrator account and I logged into the Administrator account and still could not do anything with my account! But I can set the password and disable the Administrator account from my account or Administrator.
      Any ideas? (Ignore the click on the Sign-in option in the Change Accout settings.)

      When I want to test Example 1 of Function _IECreate (AutoIt Help File), I see that function _IECreate doesn't work in Windows 10.
      Syntax Check (Ctrl+F5) gives no errors.
       
      Example 1:
      ; Create a browser window and navigate to a website #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.autoitscript.com")  
      The error I receive with F5 (Tools, Go) in SciTE:
