Hello,

I experience problems when in Fullscreen mode and trying to switch to
another program (via Alt+Tab Windows shortcut). Full-screen windows
stays overlayed above every other program. I have to manually end
fullscreen mode before I can check my email application for instance
and when I come back to ComicRack I have to turn fullscreen on again...
Is there any solution for this?

Thanks
Regards
Mike

What version of Windows and which build of ComicRack are you using? I'm unable to replicate this.

I can also replicate this.

Pressing Alt+Tab with CR in fullscreen only brings the Windows 7 taskbar in focus, but no window comes in front even on clicking at the taskbar.

Oh, I must have read it improperly originally because I obviously didn't get it. I'm able to replicate this if I try to alt-tab to something on the same monitor as the fullscreened reader. >.< My mistake - I usually leave this one one monitor by itself!

Yes, I've seen this behavior both in 64 Win 7, as well as in my older computer running XP. Furthermore, I usually "autohide" my task bar, and the taskbar becomes unreachable when I'm in full screen mode (neither pressing the windows "start" key nor with the mouse).

Next release will leave fullscreen when activating a different application.

Hm... seeing this in 131, can we go back to fullscreen when returning to ComicRack from other application?

BTW, before current version I used program called HotCorners that enhanced mouse behavior - when you moved cursor to corner of the screen it executed action - in my case it was minimize active window - and it worked like a charm with fullscreen CR - minimized it right away. So then, when I clicked on the taskbar again to bring CR back, it returned to fullscreen. Now it's impossible. ;)

Forgive my, but I can't seem to find option for this anywhere in ComicRack.ini. Is it there?
