Hello,
I use WinSCP regularly (3.6 and 3.8 ,Norton commander interface ) wothout problems. Recently I installed MS powertoy VDM (virtual desktop manager). In the normal use you change back and forth between desktops. When I return to the desktop that contains the WinSCP windows, these get distorted: only a small bar appears on screen and you cant restore it to its normal state. I know this is a very special case. Any suggestions, anyway ?
Thanks,
F. J. Gaztelua

It is known bug. I hope to solve it, but I do not know how, yet.

In version 3.8.2 b330 this is better. The window can be restored after switching to another desktop but sequence "leave winscp window open", "switch to another desktop", "lock computer" will cause similar problem.

Compatibility with MSVDM has been improved. The partial fix will be included into the next release.

Hi,
Meantime I use workaround : before leave the desktop with WinSCP - always minimize it.

Some other programs suffer from MS-VDM switching also.
