I am doing work in file explorer, cleaning up directories of files. In other versions of windows, when I get a message like "are you sure you want to delete" or some such thing, I get a nice pop-up to answer. However, Windows 10 seems to be hiding this message in a windows below file explorer. I proceed to perform a number of operations and begin wondering why the system is not responding, when actually, the %complete and other messages are all consolidated in this pop-under windows. Very annoying. How to change that to a pop-up? here are two different examples, where these notifications were hidden beneath the file explorer window I was working in:
