Every now and then my right click stops working in Nexus and I have to reboot to correct it. As I don't include the Preferences in the dock as I use the right click to access it instead. I have no way to restart Nexus without restarting Windows. Very frustrating.

There *is* a reason for the existence of the Nexus control tile.... ;)

Never seen that here when 'playing' without the tile, though. But then that's not very often as I only do it to test themes.

First time I hear anything about the right click context menu stopping to work.

The only thing I can think off that might cause that is the dock thinking it's collapsed/hidden when it's not?

Does the rest of the dock work normally (i.e.; mouseover animations, etc...) ? Did you disable screen edge activation or nothing happens even if you bump the screen edge?

Are you running Nexus or Winstep Xtreme? Either way, next time it happens try pressing CTRL+F11 - this (assuming you haven't changed that key combination) will open Preferences. From there you can either exit the application (so you can restart it without having to reboot Windows) or simply press OK, which should fix the issue.

Anyway, I need more information to at least have a clue on what might be causing this.

I am running Xtreme but without Workshelf and the desktop modules. I like it minimal which is why I don't use the header tiles. Thankyou for reminding me of the hotkey. That makes it easier. Here is my desktop. The feather is my nextstart menu.

Nice! You really are into minimal, these days. :)

But... does the dock still respond to mouse overs (or left clicks) when it stops responding to right clicks?

Thanks, Dawn.

Pity you can't reproduce it on purpose. Do me a favor, next time it happens please let me know if invoking Preferences and then pressing Ok fixes it, or if it's necessary to restart the application.

Also, on average how often does it happen?

Hi Gillon,

I think those widgets are Rainmeter. If so, which skins? If not, how'd you do those cool text widgets?

Thanks!

Yes the widgets are Rainmeter. The one on the right is called Simple Media and the left is Raleway that I customized to match the other.

The systray on the bottom is Nexus, but I use Rainmeter for the date.

All in all, I'm liking my new setup, but I'm going to go outside the box and try to play with more minimization of my interface over the weekend. I came home from work today, turned on the PC and was tickled pink at the weather description. It sounds so dramatic!

Thanks for showing us your desktop so I could be inspired.

Okay, right click is broken again. When I try to launch a program, the icon bounces but nothing happens. I did ctrl F11 and a dialog box came up.....

(339) Comctl32.ocx is missing or has not been registered correctly.
Please reinstall Winstep Xtreme to fix the problem or contact Winstep support.

Over to you Jorge!

What version are you running?

Have you restarted Xtreme already?
