Wow, that was quick. Thank you!

- Start the program freshly
- Click its icon on the tray to make its main window appear
- Press and hold the Alt key

The controls would appear and respond when you click their positions.

Sorry, completely forgot to mention it. D'oh!
I have not been able to reproduce this (on XP 32 bit --- maybe I need to get a VM of a newer OS and try it...) but I bet it's related to all the code Scott added for custom drawing of textures and such. You can see M$ is showing increasingly less care for custom-drawn controls and UI customisation in general, so the one way to fix this is probably to remove all that custom drawing code and default back to the OS drawing when textures are disabled. I personally don't use the texture option, but I really don't want to remove the option for everyone either.

(Related: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/oldnewt...0/?p=94915 )

Interesting. Definitely sounds related.

I could reproduce this behavior on my old XP (32) consistently. It happens on my Win7 as well and even occurs with the PtronGui skin applied to the program. The "textures" option setting doesn't matter. Whether it's run as a tray icon or not also doesn't matter.

The main thing is that you do have to start the program fresh. After it starts, click to open the main window (from tray or taskbar) and then just tap the Alt key -- as you would normally, don't hold it down. The disappearing act only occurs once. To fix it, minimize the window or send it back to the tray; thereafter, when the main window is opened again and Alt is tapped, the key works as it should and accesses the drop menu.

Me, I would rather live with this odd quirk than give up the textures. I use different textures for different configs for a variety of reasons and find it very useful. If that initial Alt-key accessibility proves critical for someone else, though, I can live without textures.
