I recently purchased AMM 8.4 and I'm trying it out at work. I have two monitors with the AMM taskbar on both and the default windows taskbar has been replaced. The left monitor has it's taskbar on the left side of the screen and the right monitor has the taskbar on the right side of the screen. I noticed that when I minimize and maximize a window on my secondary monitor the animation goes towards my primary monitor and it's taskbar on the right. I should also mention that the right side of the screen is where I last had the windows taskbar.

This is no big deal to me. If there is no easy fix, I'll just turn the animation off following the instructions below.

Kevin,

Thank you for the report. Please specify the version (Vista/7/8/8.1/10) and edition (32-bit/64-bit) of your Windows.

Kevin,

I was unable to reproduce the issue with the latest 8.5 beta 2 version of Actual Multiple Monitors (download link - http://www.actualtools.com/files/amm85b2.exe). Could you check whether you are able to reproduce the problem with the 8.5 beta 2 version or not? If you will be able to reproduce the problem, please send us your configuration files (Actual Multiple Monitors -> Tools -> Configuration -> Send to Tech Support).

I installed AMM 8.5 beta 2 and re-enable the minimize and maximize animation and the animation still goes towards the right side of my right monitor (monitor #1) instead of the AMM taskbar the program is actually sitting on, which is the left side of my left monitor (monitor #2).

BTW, I could not send out the email generated by 'Send to Tech Support'. Clicking the Send button in Outlook would give me the error message "Cannot send this item". I tried changing the email format to Rich Text as suggested by the internet, but clicking on Rich Text wouldn't do anything. It stayed as Plain Text. So...I saved my configuration settings to my desktop using Tools->Configuration->Backup and then copied the subject and body over to a new email and attached the config files to that email.

My monitor numbers are actually switched now, but the problem is still the same.

Kevin,

Unfortunately, I'm still unable to reproduce the issue.

Could you send us (support@actualtools.com) a video of the problem and attach a list of running processes on your PC?
