Screen refresh wrong when swapping windows

Can anyone tell me about this display problem?

If you are in B1 and click on the icon for another active window such as Excel or Outlook, the new active window sometimes does not appear. Although B1 is no longer the active window, it is still displayed on the screen. To see the new window, you have to click on the icon again to 'minimize' it (even though it has not been displayed), then click again to have it displayed.

The problem only happens when going from B1 to another application.

I do not think that it happens in 2005A, only 2007A. It seems to affect Vista and at least some XP workstations.

I cannot find a SAP note on this. Anyone know anything about it?

Regards,

Douglas

      Thanks for the reply. I will try the changes in the note when I can restart my laptop.

      One thing, though. The note talks about a problem with speed when you Atl+TAB. The problem that I have is not one of speed, but that the screens will either not appear at all or you will see only parts of them in a display that is a mixture of B1 and the window which you actually want. Waiting does not make any difference, you have to click on the window that you want twice.

      However, what the note mentions seems near enough to give it a try.

      But I would have thought that many people get this problem. Does everyone just put up with it?

      Regards,

      Douglas

    We have this problem also. When minimizing SAP B1 instead of swapping windows, you don't have this problem. I never searched for a solution to this problem, but if there is one: let us know.
