- How MaxTo detects if a window was maximized
It Really Whips the Llama's Ass
Winamp was one of the first MP3-players for Windows. Since discontinued, and now continued again.
Winamp windows does not really maximize, they are simply placed to cover the entire screen exactly. This shim enables MaxTo to detect when this happens with Winamp windows, and respond accordingly.
This shim can be disabled in MaxTo if you go to Options, Compatibility, and clicking on Winamp. You should find a toggle switch to disable it.
Note that shims should only be disabled if you have a legitimate reason to do so, and accept that disabling them may cause applications to crash.
Compatibility shims are our way of telling MaxTo that some programs react badly to being handled by some of MaxTo's functionality.
Each compatibility shim has a description text and a list of functionality that is affected. Some are small and do not result in loss of functionality, others cause MaxTo not to work at all (and the reason for the compatibility shim then is simply to prevent apps from crashing).
This list is kept up to date outside of MaxTo's release cycle, and will be updated automatically by MaxTo.
