DeskTool is a really useful App that saves much time. However, the autohide feature is eating up my nerves, sometimes. Each time I drive the mouse cursor to the upper right corner of the screen to hit the minimize/maximize/close window icons DeskTool comes up - standing in my way (grrr...).

Then I have to drive back the cursor, wait until DeskTool disapeares and try it again with a degree of concentration that a simple act like closing a window has not deserved. It`s persecution. As an old Win 3.1 user I sometimes even use the upper left icon to close a window - same procedure, here. It`s only a second of delay each time but EACH TIME. Please stop that.

You could trim the sensitive width of DeskTool so that the controls of a maximized window are not covered. Or you could recognize window control icons on screen and make them inactive zones for DeskTool or something like that.

Best regards,

Thank you for writing us.

The AutoHide feature can be switched-off using DeskTool's context menu or Properties|Features dialog.
DeskTool can be docked to any border of the screen, or be in a floating mode.
The sensitive area of AutoHide feature corresponds to visible area of DeskTool (one pixel usually.)
Speed of DeskTool showing/hiding for AutoHide feature can be changed using Properties|Features dialog.

Thanks for your suggestions.
