Ticket #5816 (new enhancement)
Reserve the guest OS taskbar space on the host OS desktop in seamless mode
|Reported by:||kidault||Owned by:|
I think this will be useful for those who want the guest to work seamless with the host OS.
In the seamless mode, When a host application is maximized, it will cover the guest OS taskbar. If I want to use guest application, I have to minimize the host application to make the guest taskbar show up. So there will be a lot of unnecessary mouse clicks and movement, if I have to do much copy/paste work between guest and host.
Now, I walk around this problem using the HSI(Hawkeye ShellInit), a small tool that can create any number of margins on the screen that maximized windows won't cover.
I think this can be easily implimented in the Virtualbox. The guest additions gets the guest's taskbar position and width, then sends this imformation to the vboxmanager. The vboxmanager performs the same function in seamless mode like what the HSI will do.
