Visual Studio windows behaves as a sticky window


On windows 7 x64 all Visual Studio windows are visible on all desktops. Also, the hot-keys involving win+top-row numbers is broken, as these are used by 7.

I haven't been able to reproduce this bug in a release build. Note that if you are trying to debug Finestra while it is running, it will treat all Visual Studio windows as sticky. The only other explanation is that if you are running Visual Studio as an elevated administrator and Finestra is not elevated as well, it will not be able to switch those windows. If you are not running VS with elevated privileges, is it possible that another program you have installed is debugging random processes?

Also, none of the hotkeys default to win+top-row for this very reason. If you want to use the top row of numbers, you will have to change the modifier key combination as well to something besides "win" alone.
