translucent "save movie file" window title bar lingers after closing program
Posted: 30 Nov 2012 04:43 PM
Even after I close out of WMM 2.6 --- If I have saved my project as a movie --- a translucent - but clearly visible window title bar remains on the monitor screen and "shows" through any other window I may have up in any program, or any browser - or on the desktop itself.

In other words -- WMM does not completely close. The only way to get rid of the translucent window "save movie file" title bar from WMM is to restart. Hitting the "show desktop" button does not get rid of it.

Other than being visibly annoying, it doesn't seem to be interfering with other programs.

I am running windows 7 64 bit.

Thank you.


Thanks to all for your help.

The next time it happens, can you check your Task Manager and see if WMM 2.6 is still running? I suspect it isn't. I think it is a glitch in your video graphics driver or something that leaves that lingering image drawn. Does it happen every time, or just sometimes when you use WMM 2.6? Have you tried the same steps in WMM 6.0?

I just switched to 6.0. I will let you know if the problem persists.
Is there any reason to also have 2.6? (I deleted it).

Thanks

I mean I uninstalled it (2.6).

2.6 and 6.0 try sharing the collection files, so it is actually pretty hard to have them coexist. Opening one will clobber the collection of the other. I would choose either 2.6 or 6.0 with my preference being for WMM 6.0 and leaving WMM 2.6 uninstalled.

Hi Blaine:

The lingering translucent Windows title bar seems to be caused by Logitech's Setpoint mouse and keyboard software. As soon as I exit that software, the lingering bar disappears. The only thing I lose without the software is the zoom function of the Logitech cordless mouse wheel.


Just thought I'd give you an update on that.

Thanks to all for your help.
