Oh yes, no one can deny a goto in honor.

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them.

See Guga's answer:
the menus on the middle of the desktop goes back to the original position after a few time (milliseconds, in fact)
It works fine, although with a small delay - simply because the top row of the menus is a separate, independent window. That solution is a bit odd but it beats Aero on Vista+ ;-)

BTW Thunderbird has now moved the menus into the caption, to gain vertical space, see screenshot below. I wonder how they do that with Aero, but can't test it yet :(

that's interesting. I thought that Thunderbird comes from Apple.

Thunderbird is an e-mail client from Mozilla - the same group that authors FireFox

JJ - i seem to recall that Bill Cravener had an example of how to put stuff in the caption
it may not be in the examples folder - search the old forum, maybe ?

There are many examples using GetWindowDC, but it won't work with DWM/Aero, that's why I reverted to this exotic solution.
