    Full-screen game frozen, cannot into Task manager

    Hello Everybody,
    I'm kinda frustrated because I got my laptop with Windows 10 Home edition and all updates (Asus Rog G752VY-GC178T) and before this I used Windows 7 which I'm very familiar with. Anyway, one of the most frustrating thing of this crap windows which I'm forced to use is that when a full-screen app crashes sometimes, a game in my case, I do press CTRL + ALT + DEL which return me into blue screen that prompts for lock, switch user, sign out, change password and task manager.

    When I used Windows 7, after I choose for task manager, I see a black image behind (the app crashed) and task manager so I can force close the app.
    To Windows 10, things are a bit different, after I choose task manager, well I see nothing, like the crashed game keeps on top of the screen!

    1. I tried also CTRL + SHIFT + ESC -> nothing
    2. I tried ALT +TAB -> nothing
    3. I tried Windows + TAB -> nothing

    Luckly I use 'task view' and I have 2 virtual desktop and I often use CTRL + Windows + left/right arrow.
    Even with the app crashed, in very rare case I can switch to second desktop to start CMD and give a taskkill command. (Cannot use task manager because is stuck on first desktop with the app frozen).

    I can't believe how bad is this OS! Any ideea why does is happen like this? Having all drivers up to date, all windows updates too, no viruses, adwares, crapware, etc.

    I also hope I posted in the correct area for this thing.

    Thank you in advance.
