Cycles on Windows 10 Rendering Hint

I am doing some Cycles rendering on Windows 10. Running off, screen-capture-to-file’s, the progress dialogue lingers about with no minimize, waiting for me to accidentally dismiss it.

On Windows 10, I activated the Task View (bottom, second icon from the left ), which I never imagined working as well as Linux’s multiple-desktop widgets, but it seems to work for this purpose.

While my machine is chugging away rending in virtual-desktop-2, I do a bit of the ol’ Arduino coding in virtual-desktop-1.

This is a handy thing, because Windows windowing system doesn’t really multitask well. Often, when you minimize something, and then bring something up, the thing you minimized comes back up, too. Perhaps they just need more time to get it right : P
