[!] Some applications (Adobe products, TechSmith products, Parametric
    Technologies products, and some others) got hung if two or more Actual Tools
    programs were running at once (exiting all but one Actual Tools programs
    made hung applications responsive back).

[+] Virtual Desktops: The ability is added to resize a Virtual Desktop Switcher
    window on-the-fly as any regular sizeable window. Set location/size are
    remembered (per each monitor either in Independent mode or for cloned
    switchers in Classic mode).

[-] Virtual Desktops: The following bugs are fixed:

    - suspending/resuming the Actual Window Manager Control Center
      might cause random memory errors in the Control Center process

    - an active window on a desktop did not always get foreground when
      switching to that desktop

    - activating a desktop by clicking empty space of its cell in the switcher
      forced the desktop to lose its active window (if any)

    - an active window lost its activation after being moved to "all desktops"
      (either manually or automatically)

    - changing a mode (Classic/Independent) messed Z-order of currently open

    - Excel 2013+ "Find and Replace" dialog disappeared after switching to

      desktop and launching another Firefox instance activated the first desktop

    - first virtual desktop got activated always when invoking a notification
      area icon's context menu for the following applications: Intel Graphics
      Control Panel, Skype for Desktop, Slack for Desktop, MS Teams, KiTTY,
      Insync, Everything

      monitors the source switcher retained the icon until window's restoration

[-] Tabbed Explorer, Windows 10: The Search box stopped working in the tabbed
    File Explorer windows since the November update 1909 (build 18363).

[-] Title Buttons, Windows 10: Extra buttons looked shorter than regular ones
    in maximized windows of Chromium-based applications (Google Chrome, Slack
    for Desktop, Vivaldi, Opera, Yandex.Browser, Spotify, etc.).

[-] Title Buttons, Slack for Desktop: The following bugs are fixed:

    - extra buttons covered the regular ones if zero horizontal button shift
      was specified

    - extra buttons were almost invisible as their glyphs were of the same color
      as the title bar

    - window couldn't be maximized correctly if there were any extra buttons

[-] Title Buttons: In some rare cases, extra buttons might disappear until
    a window got dragged/sized.

[-] Window Actions: The "Block premature appearance of window" option did not
    work as declared in Chromium-based applications.

[-] Window Actions: Applying the "Send to bottom" action at startup might make
    the Alt key appear to be pressed (actual pressing/releasing the physical
    Alt key removed that effect).

[-] Window Actions: Custom title buttons/hotkeys for the "Run keyboard macro"
    action stopped working in the Default window settings.

[-] Desktop Profiles, Configuration: The Identify button in the "Multiple
    Monitors - Desktop Profiles" panel displayed a monitor number in wrong place

[*] Window Layout: Speed and reliability of the "Bind layout to desktop
    geometry" facility is greatly improved.

[*] Window Actions: The "Relocate split windows" feature now works right in
    a multi-monitor environment.

[*] File Folders, Configuration: Now adding a new entry into
    the Favorite Folders list via title button immediately updates this list
    in the Configuration window.

[*] Clipboard History: Now right-clicking an item in the History window selects
    it before popping up a context menu.

[-] Virtual Desktops: The following bugs are fixed:

    - the "Auto-switch desktops" feature stopped working

    - in Windows 8/8.1, hidden windows on inactive desktops did not appear
      back after their desktop's activation

    - if a window got hidden on an active desktop and then another desktop
      was activated, switching back to the first desktop forced the extra
      buttons of the hidden window appear (they looked orphaned as their master
      window remained invisible)

[-] Actual Taskbar: Action Center button in secondary taskbars did not work
    if the main system taskbar was hidden.

[-] Window Actions: The "Run keyboard macro" action did not work in combo

    - Mirror
    - Move to Virtual Desktop
    - Put into Divider tile
    - Switch Audio Device

[-] Windows Monitoring Log: The following bugs are fixed:

    - dragging an excluded window filled the log quickly with duplicate
      "New window" events

      "New window" event

    - the Log window itself did not appear in the log

[-] File Folders, Configuration: After adding a path into the Favorite Folders
    list via title button and then modifying it in the Configuration window,
    it was impossible to add that path via title button again.

[-] Configuration: The Index panel of window settings:

    - did not display specified parameters of the "Fix minimal/maximal size to"
      items in the Size section

      making any changes at the Startup page

Actual Window Manager 8.14.1 (09.07.2019)
[!] Internal logic of global hook handlers is revised to improve the
    compatibility with the systems running on multi-core CPUs.

[!] Title Buttons, Windows 10 build 18362+: Notepad got frozen when opened empty
    (i.e. with no document specified).

[+] Window Actions: Quick copying of window-related information (like caption,
    class, program's executable file name) to clipboard is added. To copy the
    required portion of information, either right-click the Copy title button
    or use the "Options - Copy" submenu in the window's system menu.

[+] Clipboard History: Saving the history to a file is added to keep it between
    sessions. For now, only text/formatted text entries are saved, to speed up
    the process and to not block the system for a long time. The history file
    gets encrypted to prevent unauthorized access to the stored information.

[*] Clipboard History: Some improvements are introduced:

    - now it's possible to paste a formatted text entry as plain text either
      by pressing Ctrl-Enter or by using the "Paste text only" command in the
      context menu (this command has replaced the "Clear text formatting"
      command). Pasting as plain text does not modify the contents of the
      original entry

    - the selected entry is preserved after pasting it or after adding new

    - the pasted entry becomes first in the history list if the "Auto-hide
      history window" option is enabled

    - if a just copied piece of information is already in the history then it
      becomes first in the list

    minimizing it to the notification area or to the screen and then restoring
    it either via its own notification area icon (Windows Live Mail, Microsoft
    Outlook) or via "Unhide" context menu.

Actual Window Manager 8.14 (15.05.2019)
[!] Microsoft Office 2013+: Application windows got frozen for a long time
    (up to several minutes) after locking the user session and then unlocking
    it back.

[+] Mirroring: The long-awaited active mirroring is finally implemented. Active
    mirrors make the mirrored content available for mouse clicks, pen drawings,
    and touch gestures as if you would interact with the mirror's source itself.

    Note: Pen/touch support now reliably works in Windows 10 only.

[+] Multi-monitor Background, Slideshow Screen Saver: The "shrink to fit" mode
    is added to the "Wallpaper position" option. For images larger than their
    host monitor, it works the same as the "proportional stretch" mode, whereas
    the images smaller than the host monitor are shown as is in the center of
    the monitor.

[+] Window Actions: The ability is added to turn off automatic semi-transparency
    on deactivation or mouse hovering for a certain window (see the "Options -
    Transparency" submenu in window's context menu).

[+] Virtual Desktops: The ability is added to keep the Virtual Desktop
    Switcher's position while toggling it on/off via hotkey: turn off the newly
    added "Show the switcher near mouse pointer" option in the "Virtual
    Desktops" panel to make the switcher stop following the mouse and stay
    where you left it last time.

    content to a current DPI resolution, including on-the-fly scaling when
    dragging them between monitors with different DPI resolutions.

    resources when Actual Window Manager was running.

[!] Window Settings: Exclusions stopped working since the version 8.13.

[*] Configuration: Specific Settings editing windows now are truly independent
    of the main Configuration window:

    significantly, especially on multi-core CPUs.

[+] Windows Layout: Automatic keeping and restoration of current window layout
    per desktop configuration has been finally implemented.

    It works as follows: each 5 seconds Actual Window Manager stores
    the placements of currently open windows. When the desktop configuration
    (or desktop geometry) changes (you plug/unplug a monitor, put a laptop
    into a docking station, change a monitor resolution, etc.), it checks
    if there is stored information for the new desktop configuration, and if
    there is then it applies the kept placement info to all open windows,
    scattering them as they were. In other words, the window layout is restored
    when you return to some already known desktop configuration.

    See the options to control this new feature in the "Layout and Snap -
    Windows Layout" panel.

[*] Configuration: Windows are now properly scaled at startup to conform with
    the DPI resolution set for a monitor, which they are opening on.

Actual Window Manager 8.12 (03.03.2018)
[+] Per-application Audio Device Switcher has been finally implemented (see
    the "Multiple Monitors - Audio Switcher" panel).

    Now you can bind available audio devices (internal/external sound cards,
    HDMI/DisplayPort outputs, etc.) to certain monitors, so that any multimedia
    application being put on a monitor will automatically redirect its audio
    playback to the bound audio device.

    Also, you can change the audio device used by a certain multimedia
    application in its specific window settings - either automatically (at
    startup) or manually (via title button, window menu item, or special window
    that can be invoked via "Show application audio manager" tray icon's
    context menu command).

    The feature is compatible with most popular types of multimedia applications
    that can play audio: web browsers (both HTML5 and Flash media content),
    media players, videogames.

    IMPORTANT: This feature works since Windows Vista, earlier versions of
    Windows are not supported.

    Known issues:

    - some media players (VLC, Media Player Classic) are not compatible with
      this feature by default; to make them compatible, you must set the audio
      output to "WaveOut" in their preferences

    - not fully compatible media players: Windows Media Player 9 and higher

    - not fully compatible web browsers: Internet Explorer 8 and higher

    - not yet supported media players: iTunes, Foobar 2000

    - not yet supported web browsers: MS Edge

       - window menu commands
       - combo actions

[*] Configuration: Undo/Redo commands now track the changes separately for each

[-] If both "Transparent while inactive" and "Transparent while mouse-hovering"
    options were enabled, the transparency level did not restore to
    "While inactive" value after moving the mouse out of a window.
Actual Window Manager 8.7 (04.02.2016)
[!] The navigation panel in the main Configuration window has been replaced.

[!] Configuration: Global options of window settings (like title buttons skin,
    window menu items order, pre-defined window sizes, etc.) have been moved
    from the Options category to the Window Settings category in the main
    Configuration window.

[!] Configuration: The Desktop Divider category in the main Configuration window
    has been renamed to "Layout and Snap", and the Windows Layout options and
    the Window Snapping options have been moved there from the Options category.

    The "Desktop Divider - Tile Layouts" panel has been split into two:

    Desktop Divider - global on/off switch, activation mode

    Tile Layouts    - list of tile layouts itself

[!] Google web slideshow source has been removed because Google discontinued
    their Google Image Search service.

[+] The long-awaited ability is added to resize/drag together windows snapped to
    each other (no matter in what way - using either Classic Snap, Aero Snap,
    Desktop Divider or even manually).

    In short, group operations on adjacent windows work as follows:

    Group Size - when you resize a window, windows adjacent to a border/corner
                 being dragged are resized accordingly (as if there were
                 a splitter between them)

    Group Drag - when you drag a window, its adjacent windows come along with
                 it (as if they were a single large window)

    By default, both these features are turned on in the "While not pressed -
    Ctrl" mode, i.e. you can disable it temporarily by pressing the Ctrl
    modifier key.

    You can disable these features, or switch the mode to "While pressed", or
    change the modifier keys combination in the new "Layout and Snap -
    Group Size/Drag" panel.

[+] Configuration: Ability is added to select all items in the lists with
    multi-selection allowed by pressing the Ctrl-A hotkey. As this key
    combination was reserved for adding a new item to a list, the New Item
    hotkey has been changed to Ctrl-N.

[*] Configuration: Hotkey combinations for list operations have been unified
    for all list-editing panels:

    Ins, Ctrl-N       - add new item
    Del, Ctrl-D       - delete selected item
    F5                - copy selected item
    Ctrl-=, Ctrl-Num+ - enable all items (where available)
    Ctrl--, Ctrl-Num- - disable all items (where available)
    Ctrl-A            - select all items (where available)

[*] Configuration: Confirmation request for the Delete Item operation has been
    removed in all list-editing panels. If you accidentally removed the needed
    item - you can click the Undo button in the bottom-left corner of the main
    Configuration window or press the Undo hotkey (Ctrl-Z by default).

[*] Configuration: The flickering has been reduced significantly when resizing
    either the Configuration windows themselves or their internals.

[*] Configuration: Now the Browse for Folder dialog remembers the last choice
    and restores it next time when adding new items to the Favorite Folders

    to start or does not support preview mode and displays a message instead of
    an empty screen.

[*] Configuration: Separate Window Settings windows now retain their position
    and size when you open them again.

    utilizing the CPU.

[-] The Roll Up feature displayed a meaningless preview for rolled up windows
    in the Aero visual theme.

Actual Window Manager 8.6 (06.10.2015)
[+] The popular request to display the system Recycle Bin in taskbars is
    fulfilled. The Recycle Bin is available as an extra button in both
    the system taskbar and the Actual Taskbar, and this button provides exactly
    the same operations as the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop:

    - you can drag-n-drop documents onto it to put them into the Recycle Bin

    - you can left-click it to open a folder window showing the Recycle Bin

    - you can right-click it to invoke the Recycle Bin context menu

    On the system taskbar, you can toggle the Recycle Bin button presence in
    the "Multiple Monitors - Taskbar" panel, in the "System Taskbar - Additional
    Buttons" group.

    On any instance of Actual Taskbar, you can toggle the Recycle Bin button
    presence using the "Show the Recycle Bin" command in the taskbar's context

[+] Now you can suspend/resume Actual Window Manager via command line using
    the following syntax, respectively:

[*] Clipboard History now displays a real image resolution for graphic data.

[*] If Actual Window Manager was installed into a trusted location (such as
    "Program Files" folder) using administrative privileges and then used under
    non-privileged user account, Actual Window Manager update installer now
    warns that it must be run as administrator to update the installation in
    a trusted location.

[-] Windows 10: System Alt-Tab switcher worked wrong if the "Move to monitor at
    startup - Where mouse pointer" action was enabled in the default window

    integrity and digital signature of an executable file being run.

[*] Vista+: Aero Snap and Classic Snap behavior has been improved in the Aero
    visual theme and high screen DPIs.

[-] Windows 10: Classic Snap did not snap windows accurately (a small gap

Actual Window Manager 8.5.2 (09.09.2015)
[-] Logon Screen Slideshow stopped reading its configuration.

[-] Logon Screen Slideshow displayed the Evaluation dialog even for registered

[-] In some cases automatic Save Idle Screens did not stop.

    pointer" option stopped working.

Actual Window Manager 8.5 (26.08.2015)
[+] Vista+: The long-awaited ability to customize the Logon/Lock Screen
    background image is added. On multi-monitor systems, it also allows to run
    picture slideshow on secondary monitors (see the new "Logon Screen" section
    in the Quick Setup wizard and the main Configuration window).

[+] Vista+: Default Audio Device Switcher is added. It lets you quickly switch
    the audio device used in the system by default for sound output, if you have
    more than one audio hardware device installed in your PC (most modern video
    cards have embedded audio hardware to support such combined video/audio
    output standards as HDMI or DisplayPort).

    You can invoke the list of available devices via special hotkey combination
    (Win-Ctrl-A by default, can be changed on the "Hotkeys - Actions" panel
    in the "Tools" group).

[+] Now you can use environment variables while specifying path for
    a Favorite Folders item.

[*] Now, when running multi-monitor slideshow, the "Next slide" command affects

    - popular web browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox;

    - Microsoft Office applications (since Office 2007);

    - Windows Explorer (since Windows 8).

    This feature should prevent the overlapping of extra title bar buttons
    provided by Actual Window Manager with standard controls available
    in a window (like standard buttons, browser tabs, New Tab button, etc.).

[+] Automatic gradual Compact View is added for extra title bar buttons:
    now the buttons are getting hidden/shown 1-by-1 if there is not enough
    (or enough again) place in the title bar to show the full list of enabled
    extra buttons. When some buttons get hidden, the special Compact View button

    monitor size by snapping it into monitor corners, like in Windows 10.

[+] Ability is added to specify the "Change interval" for wallpaper slideshow
    in seconds.

[-] Windows disappeared after minimizing/restoring them on the taskbar button

[-] Wallpaper slideshow in the "Individual picture on each monitor" mode worked
    wrong on display configurations having cloned monitors.

[-] Multi-monitor screen saver and slideshow screen saver worked wrong
    on display configurations having cloned monitors.

[-] If the compact view for title buttons was on, sometimes the popup toolbar

    in the following cases:

    - in Windows 7 and later with the Aero visual theme activated

    - with vertical shift applied

    - when maximizing/restoring a window where the compact mode was activated
      automatically (i.e. the window's title in normal state was too narrow
      to embrace the full list of buttons)

[-] Desktop Divider layouts were not displayed while configuring "Specific
    Settings - Startup - Put into Divider tile".

Actual Window Manager 8.2 (22.09.2014)
[!] The Configuration Module now can run multiple windows at once.

    For example, you can open several Window Settings windows using the

    a particular window are isolated there until you click the Apply button
    in that window.

[!] Changes made in the Default Window Settings now are propagated automatically
    to all existing specific window settings (provided that the old value
    was the same in both Default and particular specific settings).

    frequently used features (according to collected and analyzed usage
    statistics) without diving into details.

[+] Compact mode for extra title buttons is now available: it displays the small
    narrow button instead of the full list of active buttons.

    Click on this button expands the list of active buttons so they can be used
    as usual. Second click on this button or click somewhere else collapses the
    list of active buttons so they do not block the view (this can be especially
    useful in non-standard windows like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).

    The compact mode activates either automatically (when the extra buttons
    do not fit the title bar) or it can be set permanently for particular
    windows in the Window Settings options (see the "Title Buttons - Options"

[+] In addition to a right click on extra title buttons, now you can hold
    the left mouse button on them for some time to invoke their extended
    abilities (like context menus or special dialogs).

[+] The ability is added to specify exact secondary display position (see the
    "Display Position" group in the "Multiple Monitors - Monitors' Layout
    and Settings" panel).

[+] Windows 8/8.1: Option to cancel the replacement of the system Alt-Tab
    Task Switcher is added.

[+] The "Popular" filter is added in the "Hotkeys - Actions" panel and set as
    default filter there. It lists the most frequently used key combinations
    based on the usage statistics analysis.

    and Final Fantasy XIV is restored.

[*] Windows 7+: The speed of Desktop Divider layouts switching has been
    increased significantly and the system load has been reduced.

    while configuring the Slideshow screen saver.

[*] The "Move the mouse pointer along with window" option now works even if
    there are no modifier keys specified.

    or disabled in window settings on a per-window basis as any other button.

[*] Compatibility of the Scroll Inactive Windows feature with old versions
    of Google Chrome is restored.

[*] The window invoked by the "Copy Settings from..." command now does not
    display the target Window Settings item.

[-] Downloaded setups of newer versions were installed automatically even if
    the automatic updates were disabled (which prevented the rolling back to
    any previous version if a newer version setup was available).

[-] In some cases Start menu submenus might appear invisible, having only
    a shadow.

[-] Numerous fixes in Actual Taskbar's Jump Lists:

    - some kinds of links did not open properly (e.g. sessions in PuTTY)

    - improper items could be dragged out of Jump List

    - items in custom categories could not be pinned/unpinned

    - some items could not be unpinned (e.g. sessions in PuTTY)

    - Windows x64: in some apps (e.g. PuTTY, Mozilla Firefox), links dragged out
      of Jump List did not work

    stuck after some scrolls and even might cause a crash of the active app.

[-] Desktop Divider: In some cases tile size could not be set exactly in pixels
    using the Resize button while editing a layout.

[-] Windows 8.1: A workaround for a system bug has been added to reduce

    appeared in the Virtual Desktops Switcher after switching the desktops
    with those programs running.

[-] Canceling the download in the "Check for Updates" dialog caused an error.

    simultaneously. There is no limit on the number of computers the program
    can be installed on and registered with the same registration code as long
    as the number of simultaneous users is less than or equal to the number of
    purchased copies. For more information, please refer to the license.txt
    document in the program's installation folder.

[!] Beginning from the version 8.0, the Upgrade Policy changes: now purchasing
    the registration code grants you the Free Upgrades Subscription for a
    certain period (a year). During this period, you are eligible to get any
    new versions of the program for free. After this period expires, you will
    have to purchase another registration code to prolong the Free Upgrades
    Subscription (in case you want to do so). Otherwise, you can continue to

    and fully functional.

    special hotkey combination (Win-Ctrl-S by default), and screen savers do not
    shut down when you use mouse or keyboard. To stop them, you should press
    the same hotkey again.

    You can select screen savers to run and adjust the key combination on the
    "Multiple Monitors - Screen Saver - Save Idle Screens" panel.

[+] Emulation of Mac OS Expose task switcher is added. You can toggle it via

    is placed over window's title bar.

    Actions - Move to Monitor" panel.

    It lets you create a collection of frequently used text pieces (e.g. your

    problems with it then you can disable it in the "Options - General" panel.

    Otherwise, please keep it enabled for a sufficient time (at least several
    days) to let Actual Window Manager collect enough statistical data. Then,

      on the group button)

    Firefox, etc.) will add the entire browser window into the group, not just
    that separate tab.

[+] You can add custom title buttons at the level of particular window settings
    (either Default or Specific). Also, you can change the order of buttons and
    tell apart the groups of similar buttons by adding separators between them.

    Note: There's no "Title Buttons Order" group anymore in the "Options - Title
    Buttons" panel because now the order can be adjusted for different window
    settings individually.

    Edit yet so please avoid any manipulations with them (adding, deleting,
    moving) when several window settings are selected to prevent the corruption
    of your settings.

[+] Combo Action feature is added. Now you can add custom title buttons and
