    Dunno if anyone else has noticed this.
    It happened to me in both the 32bit and 64bit versions.
    When I leave programs open and lock desktop (windowsbutton+L) then log back in, those programs will be missing from the taskbar.
    Pressing alt+tab will show that they are still running.
    Giving one of them focus will make it reappear in the taskbar.

    Has anyone else noticed this and/or found a fix?


    Also the other annoyance is that there is no more 'move' option when right clicking a program in the taskbar.
    For those that never figured out what it did, after right clicking a running program in the taskbar and choosing 'move' it would put the cursor directly over the top frame of the window so that, before moving the mouse, you could press and hold the left click button and then drag the window, even when you couldn't see where it was.
    The reason I need this is because I have 2 'monitors'. One monitor and one TV. I run WMP fullscreen on the TV and when I'm done I need to be able to move WMP back, but I can't see the second screen.
    Windows7 removed the 'move' option.
    Any solutions?

    No, RC1 (there probably won't be a RC2) will probably drop around mid-April.
    April 10th is the date being bandied about, but who knows.
