  1. you don't say? Have you read any of the other threads posted recently, or even just the subject lines? lol.
  2. That really doesn't seem his style. It's the same thing every time an update breaks aeroglass. Crickets, lots of waiting, People in the forums keep freaking out, asking about an update, demanding bigmuscle address their concerns. He ignores them all. Then a month or two later an update drops. Then a few months later Microsoft breaks it again. Rinse/Repeat. Sure it'd be nice to get faster updates, but I think I'm only in this for $10 at this point. I think I bought $5 license one, used it on 2 pc's. Then I bought a new one and didn't want to wait for 30 days to reuse a deleted key, so paid another $5. I don't feel like he owes me a lot for $10. Especially when i've been using it for years. I tried the only other competition I'm aware of (Windowsblinds) but I didn't like it.
  3. Virus aside, it's pretty normal behaviour. Most of the time when Aeroglass breaks it takes a long while for an updated version of Aeroglass to come out. BigMuscle doesn't generally give us updates on the progress. He (or she?) is usually pretty dark about the whole thing. In this case we had two successive updates that broke Aeroglass, so at this point I'd be reseting the clock on the one that come out last week.
  4. Why are people freaking out? It always takes BigMuscle a while to make an update when Windows breaks Aeroglass. I doubt he's stopped supporting it. This happens twice a year.. lol.
  5. We never do, but this happens every time there's a major windows upgrade. It usually takes him a while to put out an update, I don't imagine Coronavirus is speeding up the process.
  6. Because someone put time and effort into creating it and charges for his time?
  7. Not really BigMuscle's fault that Microsoft keeps making substantial enough changes to windows 10 that it keeps breaking Aeroglass. I'm kind of moot. The delay in Aeroglass updates it's usually enough time to determine if the big spring/fall updates are having other issues. By the time the Aeroglass update comes out your pretty safe to install the spring/fall update. I hope BigMuscle is doing ok out there.
  8. This happens every time Windows does big updates. It breaks Aeroglass. It's been going on for years. It usually takes BigMuscle a month or two to fix Aeroglass so it works on the new version of Windows. I agree that he most likely didn't update after the last months update, because the big update was coming out this month. What's the point of starting to work on it if MS is going to break it again. He'll get there. I don't imagine the Coronavirus is making things easy either. Depending what problems it's causing for him, maybe it'll be a while
  9. Thanks for the heads up. I had uninstalled and delayed the update that originally broke aeroglass, and now I will delay it further. I wonder if BigMuscle was waiting to do an update until the May update came through. Those bigger biannual updates always break aeroglass. It would of been counterproductive to fix it a few weeks ago, only to have it break again when this month's update rolls out.
  10. The worst part is that I think MS is doing a major update this month? If bigmuscle does release an update before next Tuesday, MS will probably break it again
  11. I think the problem is the 2nd screen. My main 1440p screen is connected via displayport. The 2nd 1080p screen via HDMI. If I run off the single 1440p screen there's no issue. It's only when I run both, the icons jam up in the upper left corner of the 2nd screen and all the windows go weird on the primary screen. I've spent so much time googling but no solutions. I've read about the simulated_ registry key, but have never seen one. I use a program called DesktopOK to save and restore my icon positions. It's super annoying. I have an AMD 5700XT right now, but this problem also existed under my old Nvidia card. Lot's of googling shows this can be a pretty common problem I wish I could figure out how manually make the simulated entry in the registry.
  12. I tried that once but didn't have the simulated entry in my registry. I also run 2 screens at different resolutions. Basically whenever I buy a new main monitor screen, I demote the old one to being my secondary screen. I have one screen at 1440p and my secondary screen at 1080p. I think that doesn't help.
  13. Yah... it'd be nice if Microsoft brought back full Aero. I find the win10 operating system works well enough, but aestically it felt like it went backwards. Without aeroglass it looks more like old school windows to me. Very boxed corners and no transparency. Like win98 or winMe kind of thing. It's shame MS keeps messing with the code and breaking aeroglass. If they stopped doing that, and figured out how to stop icons and windows from moving all over the place when you turn monitors on/off... it'd be a great OS
  14. I did the opposite. I uninstalled the update and extended my windows update installs deferment to late may.
