Tooltip follow mouse to taskbar, without jumping to top of screen?

27 Jan 2016, 17:25

On windows 10, if a tooltip is displayed (i'm using autohotkey to make one follow the mouse), when I move the mouse to the windows taskbar at the bottom, the tooltip jumps to the top of the screen, how can I prevent this?

I don't care if it goes offscreen.

my code, which it doesn't obey, it jumps to top of screen which isn't where mouse is

Code: Select all

MouseGetPos, mouse_x, mouse_y
ToolTip,%Title%, mouse_x+20, mouse_y

Solved by Winmoving the tooltip to the mouse in a timer.

I've been experiencing a similar problem. For me, though, I want to place a tooltip in the bottom-right corner of the screen by using e.g.

Code: Select all

ToolTip, Some useful text, A_ScreenWidth, A_ScreenHeight
On Windows 7, this works as expected, relocating the tooltip to be entirely on screen, overlaying the taskbar. On Windows 10, though, it 'wraps' up to the top-right corner.

It seems to be interference from some (new?) aspect of the Windows 10 taskbar, because if I set the taskbar to auto-hide, the tooltip appears as expected, even if the taskbar is visible while mousing to the bottom of the screen. If I move the taskbar to the right edge of my screen, the toolip appears flush to the inside edge of the taskbar; the problem again disappears when auto-hide is turned on.

I'm using version 1.1.24.02 (64-bit Unicode) on Windows 10 Pro (version 1607, build 14393.447).
