    Default Programs maximising while adjusting display properties.

    When I minimise the programs Firefox and Windows Media Player 11 (in corporate skin mode) to the task bar and then right click on the desktop and go to properties. If I then click the desktop tab and then change the colour and then hit apply, these minimised programs would then maximise?

    Is there a reason for this? I have tried doing it with other programs and it just seems to be these two doing it at the moment. Could someone else test this as I described and tell me if they get the same thing happen?

    Many thanks.

    Edit - It seems to happen with those two programs when I change something in the display properties and you get the windows dialogue 'Please Wait' appear when it's applying the change.

    What's happening when you change a setting in Display Properties, the PC refreshes it's self. It appears that with these two programs (and perhap others too) the refresh will also reset them to a default mode.

    Thank's Canuck, as I thought.
