Windows going behind icons as part of the desktop


Recommended Posts

So in my quest for animated wallpapers, I first went to Windows Dreamscape and turned my .gif into a .wmv, didn't like how that turned out.

I then get BioniX wallpaper changer, and this is when I begin noticing the odd behavior. Toggling Dreamscape on and off caused BioniX v12.44 to not work.

What I didn't like about BioniX is how weird it seemed - and I don't know what caused this window eccentricity - or if there's anything I can change in the registry to undo this.

It looks as if BioniX has turned all your windows into 'wallpapers', so that they now appear behind the icons.

I'm not sure if BioniX is meant to have a setting to do that?
You may find something in the BioniX online manual, or raise a support ticket with them.

PS. The command message that causes that behaviour is undocumented by Microsoft, but if you google "WorkerW" you will find lots of coders messing about with putting things inbetween the Desktop and the Icons.
Here's one to give you an idea: https://dynamicwallpaper.readthedocs.io/en/docs/dev/make-wallpaper.html

 

It may have got stucjk there because BioniX crashed, so you might find that reinstalling BioniX, running it and closing it normally, may fix the issue.
Then uninstall it again.

Of course the drastic fix is to repair or reinstall Windows to it's default state. But I'd try talking to BioniX first.

I should've said earlier that while I may have experienced the issue before I uninstalled, I was able to document this issue only after I removed BioniX from my system.
