Max minimized bring to front etc
show user profile  Reality Man
sometimes on a big render I minimize max only to find I need to bring it back up.

Clicking in the task bar never works so I use the task manager,highlite it and choose bring to front.

Doesn't always work and lately it doesn't work at all.

Is there a way to cancel the render when minimized?

Without having to force max off thru the task manager?

I think I remember that if you click on it's icon on the task bar and hold down the ESC key for long enough, it will stop. I could be wrong.

A somewhat similar question, can you stop a render to texture? There seems to be no progress bar with the cancel button like on the normal render, and closing a frame buffer window doesn't stop it.

I think mashing escape seems to work there Horizon.
