Re: [Function] WinGetPosEx v0.1 (Preview) - Get the real position and size of a window

Too bad then. :( Wish I could help but there isn't (and never will be) any W10 machine near me to test possible changes to the function. Hopefully someone else here would chime in. Good luck! I came to Garbage 10 from XP, so, I skipped over still-could-turn-it-off Aero in Windows 7. I presume that ...

Re: [Function] WinGetPosEx v0.1 (Preview) - Get the real position and size of a window

I have shown him several excellent articles about Garbage 10's spyware functionality, and he understands the issue, but the committee of untouchables who signed our major contracts bought into the extortion of M$'s Software Assurance and scare tactics, i.e., legal exposure if the OS is not updated t...

Re: [Function] WinGetPosEx v0.1 (Preview) - Get the real position and size of a window

Hi, I'm a beginner and new here. I was asked by the Ask-for-Help-ers, at the risk of asking become recursive, to re-post within this thread my question. I Googled and read through many AHK posts about why WinMove does not work the way it used to -- intuitively and with no fuss -- on more recent, cra...

Re: WinMove: Broken by Shards of Glass

["Columbo" voice] Ah, sorry, wrong guy! So, where were you on the night that the code was written?

Okay, I'll re-post at that link. The discussion there seemed upper-level.

Thanks to all!

Re: WinMove: Broken by Shards of Glass

Thanks for the theme alternatives, which look superior to the couple of High-Contrast ones that I found within Windows 10 when I searched for a non-Aero theme that might eliminate the transparent-border problem. I noticed that a system-file patch is involved, which, for my work machine, makes me sli...

Re: WinMove: Broken by Shards of Glass

Thanks very much for your reply. Let me show you what I mean: http://imgup.io/images/2016/02/16/e25bb2ca58df6d094eb5653d4827662e.png That photo shows the result of my simple AHK macro shown earlier (run via Windows 10). You can see the desktop background showing through, and the Firefox window looks...

WinMove: Broken by Shards of Glass

Hi, I'm a beginner and new here. Bear with me. I Googled and read through too many AHK posts about why WinMove does not work the way it used to -- intuitively and with no fuss -- on more recent, crapified versions of Windows due to "Aero Glass" and other window-added uglies that fatten invisibly win...
