That's okay.  I don't often run mIRC in the task tray, but thought I'd mention it to you in case you wanted to know of the issue.


Okay, I am running Windows 7.  I have TT set to minimize (it closes by scrolling down to the bottom of the screen) and place the task bar behind open programs so that it doesn't open when I run my mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen whenever a program is open.

I have mIRC ( free 30-day trial if you want to use it to reproduce the problem), which will minimize to the task tray (next to the clock) when I hold down SHIFT while minimizing it.  The problem occurs when I double-click the mIRC icon in the task tray to maximize mIRC again.  Once I do that, TT stops sending the task bar behind open programs, so that the task bar pops up whenever I run my mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen.  The only way I can get TT to start hiding the task bar again is to exit TT and restart it.

I hope this makes the problem more clear.  I'd make a video, but this old machine isn't up to the task.

Thank you,

Gregg Hoover.
