Tray icon tooltips appearing unexpectedly
« on: 19 12 2017, 02:03:36 »
Hi,

I have MirandaNG 64-bit running on Windows 10 64-bit (OS fully patched including Fall Creators Update).

I am noticing the "tray icon" tooltips (as provided by Tipper) appearing by themselves, with no action on my part. This usually happens at least once or twice while Windows is starting up, and at random while I'm using the system. The tootips appear near my mouse pointer, which is nowhere near the Miranda system tray icon at the time. Sometimes, the tooltips even appear while I'm in games (albiet only games that are running "fullscreen windowed" mode; I haven't noticed it in games that run in true fullscreen mode.)

I don't want to disable the tooltips, as they are useful to me, yet their unexpected random appearance is starting to get annoying. Please help...

I thought I have a bug in my version. This happens to me very often. Also when watching movies.

For me: it was almost every Miranda autostart (Miranda shortcut in Startup folder). As if the cursor is pointing to the tray icon.

But after Windows 10 1709 bug disappeared (on my machine)
