Since updating to 3.0.5, whenever I minimise the SourceTree window I cannot open it again and I get the angry Windows DING noise. I have to right click it in the task bar, close it, then reopen and it's fine. Anybody else seeing this behavior? I'm using it on Windows 7.
I now have 3.0.9 and it's fixed for me...mostly. When clicking the minimize button in the upper right (app is maximized), and then clicking the icon on the taskbar, it activates the icon, but doesn't show the window unless I click a second time. It is only an annoyance at this point, so thank you for fixing the biggest part of the issue.
Okay, I noticed that it seems to only occur in the way I described above when minimization means that only the desktop is showing (no other windows). When other windows are behind the SourceTree window, then minimizing the SourceTree window properly re-activates upon clicking the icon. Or it occurs if minimizing SourceTree using the minimize button and then minimizing all other windows such that only the desktop shows. It has something to do with having no other windows on the desktop.
This issue is also occurring for me on windows 10
I have a minor work around for this.
Left click on sourcetree in the taskbar and then press enter.
Also avoid using minimise arrow/keyboard shortcuts just click on the icon in the tray to minimise/maximise which seems to work fine for me, for now.
Good workaround. I'm also using Windows 10 and have the same issue.
After minimizing SourceTree with the _ icon in the upper right I receive a ding when trying to click on it in the taskbar .
Clicking it and then using Windows+Up or Windows+Down will bring it back, or the method you described: Windows+Enter.
This is still an issue in 3.0.17.
1. On a laptop without external monitor it happens only after one click on the taskbar icon, second click (usually) brings SourceTree window.
2. On a desktop with two monitors it's getting worse - before at least after multiple clicks on the taskbar icon SourceTree window could appear. Lately it doesn't work at all.
@"Jacob H" Thank you for a workaround - clicking Windows button + Up button works!
BTW, status of this issue shouldn't be SOLVED - because it's not solved!
Yet another "happens to me". This happens whether or not there are multiple displays. It is simply triggered by minimizing using the upper-right minimize button and then attempting to click the icon in the taskbar. Should be rather simple to reproduce. I am on Windows 10 build 1803 presently.
Can also confirm the workaround above works.
Seeing this on v3.0.8. I have a Lenovo Y50 laptop + external monitor. It happens both on laptop only and laptop + external monitor, so it is not unique to dual monitors. The current workaround I'm using is clicking on the taskbar icon and hitting Enter to bring the screen back up.
Thanks for reporting this. We have seen a handful of similar reports and are investigating though currently we can't reproduce it.
Can you provide any more details that might be relevant? e.g. are you using multiple monitors, especially hi-definition settings etc?
I can also reproduce the issue when using the "_" minimise button or the Windows Key + down arrow. Minimising by clicking the taskbar icon does not.
Running 2x identical 1080p monitors, Windows 10.
Sometimes after minimising the window with the "_" button, spam-clicking the icon in the taskbar can reopen it. Otherwise, the workarounds of clicking the taskbar icon + enter or Windows Key + up arrow work.
