Windows 10: Windows 10 goes back to desktop

    Windows 10 goes back to desktop


    So I'm having this problem where my computer goes to desktop no matter what I'm doing at the time. I tried to remember if I was pressing some certain buttons that would cause this to happen but it is completely random. Because I'm playing games most of the time this can get kind of frustrating. If anyone knows a solution I would like to hear it.

    Does the game shutdown or can you alt tab back into the game?

    What are your system specs? All games or only specific few?

    It doesn't shutdown... I just need to click the game in the taskbar and I'm back but it didn't happen until like a month ago and i have had the same computer and windows for a year now so I don't think it has something to do with the specs... and yes all the games sometimes even in Edge or Firefox

    Are you by chance moving the mouse pointer to the extreme bottom right corner and activating the Peek feature? It's a faint vertical bar on the right end of the Taskbar that can be turned off. I sometimes do that when just wanting the pointer out of the way.

    For some reason I can't use the peek feature... I think it is turned off and it does that even in FPS games... not just MOBA
