Overlapping windows running tests on Windows 11

Hi all,


I'm trying to run automation (works fine on Windows 10) on Windows 11, but having an overlapping window issue when trying to select file menu items.


Are there any settings on Windows 11 that I need to change in order to get the tests working? I have scanned the documentation but don't see anything specifically for Windows 11.


Tests are running on a desktop .net/winforms application.

See if this recent post on Win11 helps: [here]. And for more info about the OnOverlappingWindow event - see [here].

Thanks for the reply Kitt. I resolved the issue. It was the new Win 11 context menus that were causing the problem. Somehow this also affected the file menu options.


Changing to the old context menus resolved the issue.
