‘Tool Window’ appears upon restart when enabling “Don’t show ConEmu on the taskbar” #1306
ConEmu build: 171025 x64
A ‘tool window’ which, judging by the title, seems to represent the currently active console, appears beside the main ConEmu window when ConEmu is set to be hidden from the taskbar. If you close the tool window it closes not only the currently active console, but the whole ConEmu instance.
Additionally this tool window seems to have re-draw issues as the contents of the window seems to retain whatever overlays it (e.g. if you open the task tray and then close it retains an image of the task try menu).
for what looks like the same issue (though unresolved), which also includes screenshots (cannot provide due to workplace restrictions).
Steps to reproduce
A couple of things to note:
I may have simply missed it, but this issue did not appear when I first enabled the setting to hide from taskbar.
Reversing this process (i.e. allowing ConEmu to show in the taskbar) seems to resolve the issue.
This happens regardless of whether Quake style is enabled (though it initially was when I noticed the issue).
ConEmu shows an additional tool window.
ConEmu should not show any additional windows when hidden from taskbar.
Unfortunately I cannot provide log files, settings files or screenshots due to workplace restrictions, but if there is anything specific I can check in the logs please do let me know.
Not sure what you mean by prettify, the text currently looks readable to me?
Unfortunately, as mentioned, I cannot provide screenshots or log files as we have severe restrictions in place on moving data outside of our company. Appreciate this may be difficult / impossible to debug without (in which case feel free to mark as unanswered as I can probably live without this feature) but otherwise if you can direct me to any particular points of interest in the logs I can report back.
That said, screenshots are same to the existing issue (#460) which I also linked in my original post.
By "prettifying" I meant removing text and links not related to your issue text.
Unfortunately I cannot from my work machine. Will see if I can reproduce on my laptop at home (though that is running Windows 10).
It is definitely not the RealConsole window because when I press
