The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Just recently some new weirdness with Windows has started happening. If I right click to bring up a context menu, often the selected item box remains on top of all other windows on the screen after it has been selected, and the operation completes. If I swipe to a different virtual desktop the box goes there as well. The only way to get rid of it is to shut down (sleep or hibernate).
Very rarely, but I've had it for years on different machines and even different versions of Windows...
What usually helps for me is to go back to the program the context menu belongs to and opening the context menu again.
I think I've had two or three instances where even that didn't help and restarting the computer was the only option.
This is a possible solution. I've seen similar things and they seem to be related to video card and some of the "Aero" settings.
Edit -I used to have tooltips that would hang out even after I left the window giving the tooltip.
Here's what you can try.
Go to System...Properties...Advanced tab...
See this: https://i.stack.imgur.com/fewOz.png[^]
(You can right click "This PC" from Explorer and click "Properties" to get to that.)
Next you want to choose the first button (Performance) Settings...
Thanks for the tip I'll give it a try. The trouble is that because it is random it will not be easy to figure out when and if it is fixed. But, hey ho, as the great Charles Petzold wrote, "This is Windows, no one said it would be easy".
I just started that and now I have the "Properties" item stuck on the screen.
I don't use Foxit,
has it all the add-ins to sign pdfs, comment, mark and so on?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I use Corel PDF Fusion (because it came free with one or more versions of Paintshop Pro and it allows PDF editing as well) and that's "only" 134MB! Bear in mind that's 134MB of Corel product: and their company motto is "Bloat and add bugs".

Indeed. A while ago someone here sneered at me because he heard that I still write assembly programs on a 40 year old 8 bit computer and actually get something working in just 4k RAM. Even an icon as resource is far bigger today.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard : You know, Number One, you missed something not playing with model ships. They were the source of imaginary voyages, each holding a treasure of adventures. Manning the earliest spacecraft, flying an aeroplane, with only one propeller to keep you in the sky. Can you imagine that?

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
adobe acrobat has additional functionality like support for digital ceritifcates , cloud apis , plugins supporting adobe acrobat pro like forms etc... hence the size... normally meant for enterprise or corp environments....who use adobe..they other readers don't have to support all this...
