    No hints for maximized windows


    Some programs I use need to have hints, or tips, shown. A debugger is the most important example for me but for my customers it is the apps I develop. If I maximize a window then hints are turned off as though I'm in tablet mode which I am not. Sometimes this doesn't happen but in the last 3 months I can only remember a few occasions where hints worked on a full screen app.
    For the moment I have written a program which runs in the background and changes any full screen windows to be a few pixels smaller and this works, but I would prefer a proper solution. I am surprised that I can't find anything about this problem as though I am the only person to have it.
    Anyone know how to solve this or is it a bug in W10 waiting to be fixed?

    :)

  3. Hints for new N95/8GB firmware

    Just some ideas that would be nice if included in the next update;

    T9; being able to delete variable words that users input in "spell". annoying getting ie (1st choice) instead of he (3rd choice)

    Faster USB transfer speeds for the 8GB version, it to me is so slow right now

    Slide to hang up in call, only available as a third party, unsigned application despite other nokia sliding phones having it

    Flash player properly locating flash files in memory, instead of having to locate it yourself in file explorer

    Spiderman 3 activation issue addressed somehow (I lost it through updating and loosing key)

    Camera shutter tone: being allowed to turn it off and the red light at night!!

    Ringing tone list: dont include MP3s!

    Probably loads more which I'll add as I remember

  4. No hints for maximized windows

    Hello martincg Welcome to the Ten Forums!

    Full screen anything does put a stop rather quickly to pop up preview type thumbnails doesn't it? Rather then pixel reduction offering an option for running programs in a windowed but still able to be maximized mode would be one idea on how to go about solving that. In fact when recently recording some YouTube clips with a recording program the program or pc game being recorded had to be run in a windowed mode in order to see the best results as well as allowing access to the control functions for the software being used to record them with.

    Sometimes that would result in seeing windows a bit smaller then preferred but also allowed being able to pause the game or app and move the cursor anywhere while the recording itself was also paused. If a game crashed that was a large help seeing the pause option on the recorder in use as well as having things being run in the windowed mode from the start. There are a few older pc game titles that can be run in the windowed mode by hitting the Alt/Enter key combo but still not allow you to move the cursor out of the game window itself until exiting the game entirely. That was how those old titles were written being a potential drawback for other things as well. You would need to take that type of situation into account when working on the programming end.
