windows responds to clicks even behind other windows


I keep encountering an error where the remote desktop window will close because I clicked on a tab on my browser. The tab is over the x on the remote window tab.

So even with the remote desktop behind my browser it is still responding to clicks even if the clicks are focused on the browser.

I am using Windows 7 and Teamviewer 12.0.75831

    Hi dfour,

    This is a bug in our current version - the development is informed and they are working on a fix.

    The problem here is, that TeamViewer still thinks that the "TeamViewer taskbar" is still open although it is minimized. I will inform you when we published a fix.

    Hi Julia, here also the question: Do you have any idea if this will take weeks, months or years until it will be fixed?

    This bug is sadly very annoying, just almost as much as it takes to get fixed :-/
