If there is a modal window opened in an application it is impossible to hide all windows (Win+D or right button in task panel). Thus it is impossible to use Fences 2 ((

If I turn off Fences 2 and restart Windows it is working properly (showing desktop with modal window).

Windows 7 64bit SP1, Fences 2.0

Can you describe the steps you are using to cause the issue?

Screenshots perhaps?

Open browser (Explorer for example), than Ctrl+O (open link) - this is modal window. Now Win+D does not work: the desktop is not shown. The same bug is with any modal window opened in any application. By the way the same is also on my notebook (Win7 64 SP1, Fences 2).

One more:

1) I use portals 

2) Only the application with modal window  cannot be hidden:

 pushing "Show my desktop" button

'Show desktop' simply minimizes all windows, and 'modal windows' cannot be minimized, thus this is not a Fences issue. It's completely normal behaviour.
You could called it an OS feature/limitation.

You are wrong. Modal windows can be minimized! Try to switch off fences and restart the computer and it will start working. The issue occured in fences 2.0.

Quoting eaglemos,

I tried that, and I stand corrected!

I've always assumed that 'show desktop' just minimized all windows.

Fences does appear to break this feature when active.

I will poke the correct people when they come online, plus have this thread moved to 'Support'.

Will it be fixed somewhen?
