Windows 10: Sometimes Certain Windows Refuse to Come to the Front
I've got used to it, doesn't annoy so much now. Just the flashing taskbar button that won't do anything about bringing the associated dialog to the top however many times it is clicked, no alt-tab because the dialog needs all the windows in front of it minimised or closed.
It's not just "Windows" anymore, it's windows and something else that does not multitask and does not follow the same rules that desktop windows do. Modern stuff like Settings is just a one page at a time catalogue.
For instance, if I want to check if my MS account is in need of attention if my Insider status has changed if that is what is preventing me from receiving an update, I have to open each settings page in turn then go back to the other two one page at a time, well my brain does not work like that after 27 years of being able to have more than one window open at a time and not having to close one down to get to the next.
I am afraid it's like a backwards step - worse even than MSDOS programs, where a menu could take you back and forth between different views, without the delay of going back to the dashboard to select updates, then to insider, then back again.
What version of Win 10 you are using ??
Given the reference previously to Display Fusion - suggest you
a. Verify this doesn't happen in Safe Mode (If so, Windows in this respect is 'ok').
b. Try a clean boot, and see if all is well
c. If so, progress from there and enable more until problem recurs.
I'd have to guess it's something installed on your system.
I just installed the leaked Windows 10 build 10051. Before this I had 9926 installed. I have a game called DayZ Standalone, it refused to launch on 9926. A friend said that updating to 10051 allowed him to launch the game. So I did a clean install....
I might be doing something wrong compared with W7 / W8 forums but my screenshot goes to the FRONT of the post instead of to the end -- I'm looking for upload attachment / manage attachments -- just says upload file which is what I did
