    Performance Monitor


    Not overly important but, I just noticed, in Build 9901, I can't minimize the Performance Monitor (Summary View) to the task bar by clicking on the task bar icon!
    Could just be a glitch, but...
    Anyone experience the same in other Builds?

    I'll give that a try when I log onto Win10 9798 later today.

    Not a glitch or a bug. It does the same thing in Windows 8. (it's not "Performance Monitor", btw.. it's Task Manager in Summary View)

    It's a.. shall we say quirk in the way Windows deals with top-level windows. When you engage summary view, the window becomes a "tool window" and no longer has a titlebar, minimize, maximize, etc.. gadgets. Because of this, the Minimize function is gone from the window manager (you can't minimize it, even by doing alt-space or other functions).

    I just tried this (9879) and it does minimize fine from summary view and detail view. So does the Resource Monitor invoked from Performance. Maybe cause the Ravens just won and are going to the Playoffs!!!

    Oops! I was not in summary mode, you all are correct. My mistake.
