It appears with the new Windows client it is set to always be on top. When I try to run task manager it runs behind the Xibo client. In 1.7.6 I was able to run task manager for example and it would always be on top. Normally this wouldn’t be an issue because in most setups you could just kill the client with alt+f4. This however does not work in my situation as I am running Xibo as a shell which has been setup to restart when closed. This makes it difficult to make changes to the Xibo client configuration especially since the config is attached to the local account. When I tried editing the config file from another account it caused the player to flicker and wouldn’t load my layout.
Also I noticed the watchdog is set to always run with no option to disable it. As mentioned above I am using a shell that auto restarts when closed so the watchdog is not needed. I prefer to let the shell do the restart as we have other Kiosk type setups that use this method and would prefer not to create special setups.
