Aero Peek not working for some windows in a specific case

    Aero Peek not working for some windows in a specific case

    There's a case where aero peek doesn't work properly with windows like it should. If a window is completely hidden behind another window, using aero peek doesn't show the outline of the hidden window, just the outline of the window in front. Is this behavior intended? Am I just late in noticing it?

    Also, somewhat related, but when I click the corner to show desktop and then click it again, the windows are brought up in the wrong order. Is there a way to fix this?

    Hello The Visitor,

    Is it possible that the border of the windows on top is overlapping the borders of the window underneath to where you can't see it?

    I'm able to see the borders of both for me below.

    No, the window underneath is definitely smaller. When it's on top or peeking out from the edge of the bigger window the outline shows, but when it's completely concealed underneath the bigger window the outline stops showing.

    I'm not sure what's going to fix that other than to refresh or reset Windows 8.

    Well if that's the only solution I think I'll just wait until Windows 8.1 comes out and maybe that upgrade will fix it.
