Has anybody else noticed that Windows 7 reacts ignorantly when you use the Windows key + arrow key shortcuts on a GUI with GUIEventMode set to 1? I discovered this recently when I was working on an app where I wanted complete control over the maximize/minimize buttons.
Just give it a spin:
#include <GUIConstants.au3> Opt('GUIEventOptions', 1) $hGUI = GUICreate('', 300, 200, Default, Default, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX)) GUISetState() While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE ToolTip('Maximized') Case $GUI_EVENT_MINIMIZE ToolTip('Minimized') Case $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE ToolTip('Restored') Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Run that, then hit Win+Up or Win+Down. None of those events get triggered, and it still maximizes/minimizes. Although I can't get it to restore down from a maximize unless the window is also resizable ($WS_THICKFRAME in the style).
Is there a way to stop Windows from doing what it wants or is the only option to check with WinGetState() and then change it back?
Windows 10 seems to respect my settings, and I don't have any other versions to test on.
I have a script that just adds some keyboard shortcuts for things like displaying the current song and artist, moving the window to the side so it won't pop up in my way, and play/pause, next song, previous song (these are the only 3 to still work since they don't need the window handle.)
In some update recently, Spotify's window class swapped from "[CLASS:SpotifyMainWindow]" to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0]". Using the new class in my controls doesn't seem to work, I've tried getting the window handle from the process handle (_GetHwndFromPID($PID)) but that seems to fail as well.
Does anybody have some idea of a way I could get this script working again?
edit: seems like discord has the same window class name, so could be some issue with this? Still not sure of a way to solve the issue though, I added a function to get the handle of the active window and can just use that now, but it was able to find it on its own before on spotify startup or script startup which would be preferred.
hey, can anybody enlighten on lesser known Windows hacks or uses ?

Configure settings dialog:
Screenshot Filename and Screenshot Counter, are used to create simple unique filenames that can cycle. Copy URL to clipboard option. - For linking your screenshots. The screenshot file type is for local copy only. App always uses .JPG for FTP right now, but I could add FTP screenshot file type specification.
Any suggestions? Did I break anything, what did I miss?

I am having a bit of trouble and was wondering if anyone may have a workaround for my issue. I made a script that would automatically install a piece of software each night on a Windows 7 Box. Now I have been instructed to do the same with a Windows 10 box since the application is now being tested on Windows 10.
The way I did the win7 installation was that I made a script and then made an executable that I call with a batch file along with the Installer. So the process is
AutoitMainFile calls batch file, batch file opens Installer, and the automatedinstaller.exe The automatedinstlaller waits 10-20 seconds to make sure the Installer has been fully loaded.
When I try to do the same both get loaded but the automatedinstallation.exe does not send commands to the installer. The code does work and nothing from the program we are wanting to install has changed as our Windows 7 runs every night no problem.
Do I need to make a new automatedinstall script for windows 10?
Any advice is appreciated
