Windows preview popup lacks controls [#17583 #18434]

Post by Rob_S »

The popup controls was fixed upon restart of my computer, which I did because same was suddenly missing from MM4 as well, so False alarm.

I am actually not sure what these were called, but if I have MM 4.xx or the release version of 5.1 running minimized, I can hover over the icon in windows toolbar, and in the resulting popup, I can fast forward, stop, next track etc.

This functionality is missing for me in 5.2.2508 recently downloaded. I don't see it mentioned in the 2510 fix list, not installed yet.


The bit below is still not working:

Also, for some reason, my windows toolbar autohides behind this version, and does not pop up when I cursor to the edge of the screen as it does with other programs.

I'm not seeing this.
If I have the Windows Tool bar set to autohide, it reappears when using MM5 in fullscreen mode, when I move the cursor just beyond the bottom of the screen.
This is consistent with other programs on my PC.

You seeing this all the time. or just when MM5 is working hard, ie. scanning or Auto-Tagging etc?
I have noticed that heavy background tasks do make some UI responses a bit slow.

Tested with 2508.
Want a dark skin for MM5? This is the one that works best for me .. elegant, compact & clear.

Yes, for now I see this all the time, windows taskbar won't pop up at all from under MM5 full screen maximized. If I window MM5, the taskbar does pop up. same taskbar pops up just fine from under MM4

3 yr old HP laptop, Intel I5 with intel graphics, windows 10 latest updates.

One other minor thing - the MM4 taskbar icon popup in MM4 has a progress indicator for how far along the current track is playing, MM5 does not have that??

As you can see in the above links no fix for this was included in 2511.

For me being not used to the bug format, it is a bit hard to read, some places it says fixed, and I see it also says re-opened, but not clear which came first or last.

Maybe at there should be a way to cross out or remove the earlier "Fixed" notation???

Lots of stuff I fixed becomes unfixed again after a while. :(
