Windows Show Hidden Icons Button

Post by Fergal » Tue Mar 28, 2017 2:35 pm

[Windows 7, Ranorex 6.2.1]

When I click the "Show Hidden Icons" button in the Windows Task Bar

The Hidden Icons display

I'm having difficulty opening those Hidden Icons with Ranorex, when the Windows Task Bar is on Auto-Hide. How can I use Ranorex to open the Hidden Icons?

Thanks!

Hi,

Try "Win+B" shortcut and then "Enter". This should set focus to hidden icons toolbar and then expand it.
