    Just hold it down until it ticks more.

    I held it for about 10 seconds but it never ticks again once the Task Manager pops up. Maybe its because the task manager pops up partly covering the mini button. I cant move the mini button either becase I have to wait for 3 ticks and it never gets there. Is ther an INI setting that will always place the mini button in a certain part of the screen?

    The task button won't come up if you don't let off the button.

    It actually sounds like something specific to their touch screen drivers. Sounds like the drivers release the mouse click if not moved after a second or so. That would be why the task switcher is coming up while they're still "holding" the mouse down. I would guess that if they could hold and move their finger in small increments that the count would continue.

    I tried this and it worked but Ugh. Its a pain in the butt to do everytime. I may have to stick with 1.08 for now. Any chance we could get 3 additional mini mode buttons? One to restore full mode, one to move it, and one for the task switcher?

    Also it would be great if frodoplayer could automagically go into minimode when the task switcher is used. Right now if I have Copilot in full screen and I switch to it via the Task button from fullscreen frodo, the only way to get back to frodo is to exit copilot.

    BTW I dont want to sound ungrateful. This is great stuff frodo. It just may need a few tweaks to reach nirvana.

    Frodo - The users not getting the ticks while holding need to check their touchscreen settings. I was having the same problem last night. My touchscreen program was set (by default) to Right-click with the screen was held. It was set to a delay of 1 or 2 seconds. Hence the reason why some of us weren't getting the ticks (becuase we were, in essence, right-clicking).

    Today, I turned off the right-click feature and have no problems. Another user posted that he simply changed his delay to five seconds so he could still use the FP ticks and the touchscreen's right-click function.

    Before I turned off the right-click function, I found that 'clicking' the screen and moving my finger in a small circle ensure that I would get FP's ticks.
