Ah, I think I know what happened, Ric.

Because you could not update at the time, you set the Update Manager not to remind you again about that particular beta version ("Hide this update" option). And so it doesn't. lol

Open the Windows Registry Editor and navigate to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinSTEP2000\Shared

Look for an entry that says 'NextSTART (Beta)' and/or 'WorkShelf (Beta)' and delete the entries (not just the values). Then try checking for updates again.

Yep. that's done the trick, thanks Jorge. Must have ticked that by accident, I think. However, I think it should not stop manually checking for updates, ideally.

Hmmm... perhaps you are right? Other Ric, what do you think?

I agree. When I read n-Ric's reply last night, I thought, "There should be a way to undo that." So, maybe if the user does a manual check, also remind the user they've turned off auto-checking and then give them the option to turn auto-checking back on or leave it off.

Ok, I changed the Update Manager so that it will also report hidden updates if the user performs a manual check for updates.

Great, Jorge. :)

And, I also agree with DD_Ric and his further suggestion.

Forgot. Dragging docks works like a charm here. :)

Thanks. Don't go anywhere, I might have some questions later. :)

I was wondering where and how you were. Everything ok?

I know, sorry... Why do you think I haven't made an official release yet? :)

I need to apply your settings here, but all of this Corona beer business has been messing with me. :P

b)https://prnt.sc/rtsp0i its not full screen , it starts a bit below the workshelf
c) it goes away after i restart workshelf

Figured out what was happening and fixed. Now I have to make sure the fix didn't break other stuff.
