Windows 10 and FileMaker 16

Windows 10, FileMaker 16 and Windows galore!
If you have upgraded your FileMaker software to version 16 and you are running Windows 10, you might get a bit of a surprise when you hover over the FileMaker icon in the toolbar:

windows on windows

FileMaker 16 now uses the same windowing model as modern Microsoft applications which results in every window in Athenaeum potentially appearing in your toolbar. This can be an issue as it allows you to select windows that are not the currently active window.

The work around is easy. Go to admin->window management and click Hide other Windows. When you return to the main menu, the windows will disappear.
