samurize, aero peek fix

heres a powershell script that will show samurize while peeking at the desktop using aero peek. this script was found here
works with rainmeter as well.
to use just uncomment(remove the '#' from the begginning of the line) the last or the secondlast line depending on rainmeter or samurize

I tried it now, works like a charm!

I'll update this if something bad comes out next week . For now I do not see anything wrong. I did not understand the output of the script though.

But anyway, thanks for the great tip, it did not make much sense that the "desktop-pinned" configs would disappear under Aero Peek.

Now, next step, how about the "Show Desktop" button? This hides the config as well, even after that script, although I guess the script was not intended to change that.

Actually, now I found a problem - the results of this script did not stick. Namely, today (I do turn the machine off for the night) the Samurize output disappears with Aero Peek again. I did not have time to run the script again, but it seems that whatever it does gets erased by a reboot.

Sorry to bump this old thread...but I have a quick question. I don't know much about PowerShell, but is there a way for me to customize this EXACT feature for other programs?

Or would I basically have to learn PowerShell to do this? I tried adding:

Code:
  Remove-AeroPeek -Process StikyNot
at the very end of the file. As can be seen, I don't want StikyNot.exe to minimize when I hover over the Show Desktop button/Aero Peek. Ran it with PowerShell, but it didn't change anything...

Thanks,

~Ibrahim~

watever u hav written seems to be right, n u dont need to learn powershell to use this. i think u should recheck the name of the process or check if the script is executing or not

I double-checked the name and it's right. I tried another program idt63mp1.exe (equalizer app) and it didn't work with it, either.

Do I need to add the ".exe" extension?

Here's what happens:



Is it running/executing? Tried PS as "Run as Administrator", but that didn't work, either.

Thank you for the response; very much appreciate it!

P.S. I know like jack about coding. I just hit spacebar twice (in the *.ps1 file) to get that extra little space between the margin and "Remove-AeroPeek....." Is there some special tabbing I was supposed to do?

OH CRAP...it is only one space. I confused the "#" as needing a space. You just need ONE space between the margin and "Remove..."

I say this because it works for idt64mp1!!!! I can see the equalizer now, woohoo!

But StikyNot still doesn't work.

Does anyone mind trying this? If you're on Windows 7, you can try it. Just open Sticky Notes and run the PS with:

Code:
 Remove-AeroPeek -Process StikyNot
at the end. Thanks, guys.
