DOpus is really the best file manager but I have one thing that is annoying me for some time now.
If I lock Windows with WindowsKey-L and unlock it a bit later the active tab points to a completely different directory which I never selected. Using the arrows in the right upper corner I can get back to the last folder.
It seems that it only happens when DOpus was the last active application before locking.
Is that a problem in DOpus or is it just my machine?
BTW: great and useful forum here!
If you turn off Explorer Replacement (Settings -> Preferences - Launching Opus) and do the same thing, do you end up with an Explorer window opening when you unlock the machine or does it still affect Opus?
Yes, the problem still exists. I just did several tests having the option set to 'replace explorer' and 'don't replace explorer' and it's the same.
The jump occurs after my laptop refreshes the screens. I have an external display connected to my laptop and I have the feeling that this refresh somehow affects DOpus. The image that shows up directly after the unlocking shows the correct selections.
Maybe I find some time today to test without an external monitor.
Silly question but you haven't assigned a Windows-L hotkey in Opus to do something and then forgotten about it, have you?
It could also be a program detecting the screen unlock and broadcasting a message to all programs which Opus interprets as something else and, coincidentally, causes a directory change. We saw a problem like this (though not related to unlocking the screen) a few years ago where a program was sending messages in the private range (where the message numbers mean something different to every program) to all programs/windows.
FWIW I lock and unlock my screen a lot and have never seen this happen, and I used to use a laptop with a second, external monitor connected as well. (Now I'm using a desktop with two monitors, which should appear as the same thing to Windows.)
Not a silly question at all - but not the case . I didn't even get the idea of using the Windows key as part of a hotkey...
The message sending could be an explanation but will probably very hard to track down. I will try to disable/close all programs and check if the problem persists.
I will let you know when I had time to do some testing.
The problem doesn't seem to exist when using the laptop without external monitor. I assume that the problem is caused by the display driver...
