fileseek results context menu and windows taskbar

Hi, been using fileseek for a long time now and still it is the best for finding stuff in all my progamming files.

just 2 non-showstopper things that i hoped would somehow disappear over time but havent.

Windows system is Windows 10

1 Fileseek results context menu
I have windows text size set to 125%
right-click desktop->Display Settings
Change the size of text, apps and other items: 125% <------

This seems to have the effect on fileseek results context menu of:
Top to Bottom font size seem to start at 100% and increase gradually to 125%
Have attached: fileseek-results-context-menu.png so you can see what i mean.

2. Fileseek in windows taskbar
This is kindof hard to explain but i will do my best
Here is a scenario
Fileseek relevant options:
Force Fileseek to only open one instance is OFF (unticked)
Minimize FileSeek to the system tray is OFF (unticked)
Windows taskbar is FULL, nothing else will fit, grouping normally happens
I have 6 FileSeek instances open and minimized, hover on taskbar Fileseek
- only 1 instance shows, i have to open task manager and manually click Bring To Front to get any of the other instances
Have attached: win10-taskbar-fileseek.png to hopefully show what i mean.

I'm glad you have been enjoying FileSeek! We were able to reproduce both of these issues, and I've added them to our list. We'll be sure to let you know as soon as we're able to fix them up :)

A work around for your second problem is to minimize then alt-tab back to FileSeek, then it should show in the taskbar again. This is a bug with the way we deal with scaling, so we should have this fixed up soon!

We've just released FileSeek 6.0, and this issue should be all fixed up now :)

One minor thing. - theres always one.

Windows 10 home v1709 - default browser is Firefox

Clicking the links described below, nothing happens at all ( no browser appears.........nothing )

Tools- > Settings -> Result View Settings -> Custom Date and Time Format Strings
Tools- > Settings -> File Handlers -> File Handler Frequently Asked Questions

The other links in Tools -> Settings work fine

Great job. I use this a lot for finding programming stuff and it never lets me down.

Having used the new version for a bit other minor thing thats bugging me......

On Open shouldn't focus go straight into the Query box? I think it used to in v5 and it was better that way.

It looks like the Query box is getting focus, but the actual window is losing focus after it launches. We've added this to our list to fix up :)
