Window Content is not shown


When I use the Desktop Overview I only see the window contents of the actual desktop and not of the others.

Yes, this happens sometimes. I don't have any control over this however; DWM does this when it "forgets" what a window looks like.

This happens to me, always, for every window that is not on the current desktop... including those that I've just dragged from the current desktop to a different one.

I think it can't just be the DWM's fault. It has to have something to do with the way you interact with the DWM.

The only facts about my setup that I can think might be relevant is that I run VVDM as admin, and that I am running a dual monitor setup.

The same thing happen to me too. I only have one monitor, and I didn't run VVDM as admin either. I agree with Odyssey, there have to be something with VVDM. I know that sometime DWM just "forgets" like you said, but this happen all the time. I also check WindowsFlip&Flip3D immediately, and there is no problem with that, every windows showing fine. I think I should add a little of my system's spec here since it's might relate.

This is fixed for me in the latest release (0.82). Yay!
