19.1 Microsoft Windows-specific issues

19.1.1 Using Windows themes

On Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 LispWorks is themed . That is, it uses the current theme of the desktop.

It is possible to switch this off by calling the function win32:set-application-themed with argument nil.

win32:set-application-themed affects only windows that are created after it was called. Normally, it should be called before any window is created, so that all LispWorks windows will have a consistent appearance.

19.1.2 The break gesture

If a CAPI/Windows window is busy and unresponsive you can use the break gesture Ctrl+Break to regain control.
