    Strange Minimise/Maximise Animations

    Hey guys,

    Something really weird is happening ever since I upgraded (which is a few days ago). Every window, if opened brand new, minimises with the correct animation (the window would fade and minimise to its button on the taskbar). But if I maximise it, the animation changes - it maximises from the bottom-right corner of the screen and minimises to the bottom-right corner as well. For example, if I create an instance of Notepad, click on minimise, it will play the correct animation. But now if I click on the button on the taskbar to bring it back up, it will play the wrong animation and will play the wrong animation upon minimising as well.

    It somehow strangely fixed itself once, until I restarted and it's been the same ever since. I've attached a GIF to show it. Any ideas what's going on? Never experienced anything like this.

    EDIT: Not sure how my attachment broke, since it was fine when I posted it, so I've uploaded it on imgur.

    I can confirm a very similar behavior.

    When I click the program's taskbar entry the very first time, it minimizes towards that taskbar entry. Howerver, all further clicks produce animations that seem to originate somewhere way to the right from the program's taskbar entry. It is not necessarily the bottom-right corner, but still is seems to be shifted way towards that bottom-right corner.

    It is nothing to write home about, but the effect is there all right.

    BTW, do you use display scaling? My display is scaled %125, which could be a contributing factor.

    Hey AndreyT, thanks for your reply!

    Good to see that it's not an isolated case and it's happening elsewhere, so perhaps someone knows of a fix.

    I agree with you, it's not always the bottom-right corner; for example, a smaller window seems to go to the mid-right, but overall the tendency is to go to the bottom-right.

    For me, who's very sensitive to design, it really bothers me lol. As a programmer I struggle to understand why this is also happening - code usually performs within a set of expected manners; fixing itself one day and being off on the rest baffles me heh.

    I don't have any scaling going on, though I would imagine that if it had an effect, it wouldn't play the correct animation to begin with. Just my thoughts.
