It's a feature that will turn off customers, I feel.
What is more, IIRC, it was introduced at some later phase of testing of /Express and someone from RT backed up the solution as it allows to move window. In fact - I regard the feature as annoying and contraproductive, as you can ALWAYS move your window, even if it takes whole desktop size, if not maximised. Once you look at the middle button at right top of window, you can still see it is not maximised. Look also at following code result: view layout/size/offset [button "unview" [unview/all]] system/View/screen-face/size 10x10 as you will see, maximise button is not highlighted. Carl, Holger - could default desktop off-set be removed or at least - what about possibility to "save" desktop window position thru user settings? Thanks, -pekr-
