  1. These notifications also show up in Chrome and Edge.
  2. Closing Explorer closes Maxthon

    I understood that but don't get why Maxthon and Winamp (and possibly other programs) are in that Explorer "process tree" but Chrome is not.
  3. Closing Explorer closes Maxthon

    I reproduced the scenario: Maxthon, Chrome, Winamp, plus EditPad Lite running. For testing purposes I selected Explorer in the Task Manager, chose End task —instead of End process tree (as suggested in the linked tutorial)—and after the Explorer restart all the programs were still running. Same with the Restart option. So the problem is related to End process tree. Now I wonder why Chrome is not affected by it.
  4. As soon as I get some time I'll make some tests and let you know.
  5. Trying to apply a fix to a drag and drop problem in Windows 10, one thing happened that I want your help to know why. Every time we close Explorer via Task Manager, Windows makes some sort of refreshing, so it closes all icons on the desktop and on the taskbar. To get all back, we have to restart Explorer using the Task Manager (as explained in the tutorial linked above). But AFAICR it doesn't close the programs that are running. Today, however, I was running Chrome, Maxthon and Winamp (v. 5.666). I started the procedure, Windows closed all the icons, kept Chrome opened but closed Maxthon and Winamp. Why that happened?
  6. I don't know why, even after that fix that worked for a while, now those notifications are back. The site that show most of them is (also
  7. I found a solution for these few "stubborn" sites: I added them manually to the Manage exceptions list > Behavior > Blocked. Now their notifications don't show up anymore. Thanks again to all.
  8. Galileusz, I had the recommended setting marked and changed to that of your suggestion, but TNA. Then I tried to use the recommended setting and after that the one you suggested, adding a couple of those sites that show the notifications to the Manage exceptions list, all with the option Behavior > Blocked. But the notifications keep showing.
  9. They appear only on a few sites. TIA.
  10. I use the portable versions only on my notebook, for it has a more limited HD space than my desktop PC's. I think you don't need to copy the UserData sub-folder, that is, if you don't want to. AFAIK, even if a person uses the portable version for the very first time and the user account and data are stored by Maxthon (site/servers), it's enough to enter the login data to get that data synced to the portable version. Of course it's not possible offline. I myself used to keep a couple or two previous portable versions JIC, because some few old sites I visited frequently wouldn't behave well with newer Maxthon versions. But I haven't had that kind of issues for a long time now. Anyway, It's a matter of choice.
  11. Always use the latest portable version (no installation needed). The annoying part of this is that you'll have to check manually for updates, and download them, and set/import your user data/preferences every time you update this way. Oh and delete the previous portable versions folders from your computer, unless you prefer to keep them JIC.
  12. I have the CorelDRAW 2017 suite installed on my PC and it also has its nag pop-up. It's there to, among other things, try to convince me to upgrade to the 2018 version. But–and it's a very importante but–it allows me to reduce its frequency or choose to stop the pop-up altogether: How to change your preferences for the Corel Update Helper – Knowledge Base
  13. Ctrl+S is a command one can use to save a page. It opens the Save as dialog for the page, and Maxthon gives the following options: Webpage, HTML Only Webpage, Complete Web Archive, Single File The command shortcut in question is specific for images on a page, via context menu.
  14. I never download and install beta versions. I have searched before posting, found nothing.
  15. karajan, it's a great solution for the tab case, so much so that I've just set keyboard shortcuts to close all left and right tabs. Thank you! But you see, some things are still around. For instance, whenever I want to save an image from a site, I click on it to open the context menu and hit S to open the Save image as... dialog. I hit S because it was the underlined letter long ago and I have it in my memory–and it still works! I have no idea what are the underlined letters for the other options in the menu, so I have to use the mouse to launch them.
