Clicking where the taskbar is located minimizes the game

Posted (edited)



I have a problem that i discovered today while playing project zomboid. Clicking where the taskbar is located minimizes the game. I tried putting my taskbar down, up and it didn't make any difference. Do you guys have any solution for this problem? I also tried it on fullscreen, windowed.

Off-hand, I don't have a good solution.

I did have it happen a few times to me with IntelliJ Idea + some overlays (like Discord, Nvidia shadowPlay .etc) somehow interfering with one another, allowing mouse clicks to fall through the game and to the desktop, but that was long ago. If you have anything like that running in the background, try closing it and see if the problem goes away.

Edit: Quick Google brought up a solution for a different game that sounds plausible, if rather out of date: https://www.reddit.com/r/prisonarchitect/comments/4vxpoo/clicking_through_game_window_onto_taskbar_with/

This one suggests a specific pinned icon might be bugged: https://superuser.com/questions/1371956/how-to-stop-taskbar-from-popping-up-on-fullscreen-games-in-windows-10
