I'm having a rather weird issue which I suspect is related to Groupy. I'm using v1.5 on Windows 11 (however it happened on 10 too) I also use Fences and Powertoys from Microsoft, which might be responsible for it as well, but I have my doubts.
So, I always have the exact same group of windows on my second monitor, all stacked up as groupy tabs, Discord, Telegram, Spotify and Mailbird. It works fine for one day, but on the next it usually breaks. Mind you, I don't ever turn off my PC and it's running all night as well.
How it breaks: all apps in groupy still work "fine", switching between tabs too, but some of them (notably telegram), start displaying images under the group window, as if it had an always on top mode. Which is kinda what happens to all 4 apps that were grouped, but between one another they still can overlap and switching the active window works. But any other windows, even ones that have admin rights, just go under any window previously grouped, even after ungrouping them and moving on another monitor. Also, I can ungroup them, but they won't group back until I restart them one by one, and only after that they behave normally.
What doesn't work:
- Restarting Groupy or PowerToys
- Restarting windows explorer
- Ungrouping them
- Moving onto another monitor
- Turning the monitors off and on
- It doesn't matter if I group them manually after start or use the start group shortcut made by groupy
I'm kinda lost on this one, so would appreciate any help, thanks
Edit: I also noticed that Fences "breaks" as well. I still can open the apps and folders inside them, they still light up with the cursor. But I can't move any fence, resize or create them, hide the desktop with the double click feature or interact with them in any way. Launching the settings still works but doesn't fix anything. Restarting windows explorer fixes the Fences issue, but not the Groupy issue.
I'm not entirely sure these things are related or it's happening because I moved to the Fences 4 beta recently, but when Fences lock up like this, files moved to the desktop don't appear until I restart the explorer, while still "being" there and recognized by the system. This has certainly happened throughout the past years on previous versions, but I was never aware it might be linked.
