So, I found some bugs in the UI. Now where do I report them?? Tried emailing the Windows 7 Blog, but got no response. 1. No focused application on the taskbar, but active in the titlebar
So you have an open window (any window, like explorer or application). Now you right click on its taskbar item, to get jumplist from this window. Don't choose any option in it, but click anywhere in this window's area.
Result is, the jumplist closes, at the titlebar you see this window as the one in focus, but on the taskbar it isn't in focus. So it is, or isn't in focus?? 2. Certain UI elements steal focus of the window, like they're the other window, but they aren't.
Two easiest examples of this bug are in the window where you choose resolution, and in Windows Media Player. Resolution window:
Click on the button to get the slider for choosing resolution, now notice that the resolution window on the titlebar loses focus, but it still shows as active window on the taskbar. Strange that the button that let's you choose on which screen to display desktop doesn't do that, only the resolution chooser. Windows Media Player:
Clicking on any part of the UI, like seeker (in playing mode) causes the Windows Media Player to lose focus in the titlebar, but it remains focus in the taskbar. 3. Taskbar item remains highlighted after mouse is moved away
This bug happens after you use any button in the thumbnail of a program (the red x to close also counts). Easiest way to show it is in Windows Media Player because it has buttons in thumbnail other then close. Windows Media Player:
Play any movie or music. Move your mouse on the taskbar item of Windows Media Player to get its thumbnail. Press the pause/play button, and move your mouse away from the thumbnail.
Result is the thumbnail closes, and the Windows Media Player's taskbar item remains highlighted as if the mouse was still on it. It even shows the popup of what's playing. Two explorer windows
: Open two explorer windows. Now hover over their's item in taskbar. You get two thumbnails, close one of them using the red x in the thumbnail, and move your mouse away.
Result is one window closes, but other's one item in the taskbar remains highlighted as if the mouse was over it. This also shows the popup.
