When rendering to separate window, this windows won't close by clicking on "close" button in the Windows taskbar thumbnail (If blender main window or render window is active, close button may sometimes work).

With blender 2.04 button is work, but it close blender instead render window.

  3. Click somewhere outside to deactivate blender.
  4. Try to close render widow from Windows taskbar thumbnail - close button is not work.

Not sure we can do much here? It’s kind of Blender not having focus issue most likely, so it cannot handle own events, or something like that I’d guess… We need a windows dev to have a look at this, but would really no consider this as high priority issue.
