    Hello juaaslo, :)

    Double check to see if you may have just switched desktops by mistake for why they are not showing on the desktop you switched to.

    Thanks @Brink,
    I had already checked, and minimized programs are not going to extra desktops. I really don't understand where they go, because in normal "minimizing", the program transitions down to the task bar, but here, it is like the program transitions up. I have checked also if it goes to extended desktop (hdmi output), but it doesn't and behavior is similar with hdmi I just guess this will remain as an unresolved mistery
    Is Windows accepting bug reports? Any way to tell them about this problem?

    Thank you all for support!

    Hello all,
    finally I found the guilty and it is unbelievable the problems such a simple thing gave to me!
    I had installaed a software called Rocketdock, which is an applications dock. Well, I just saw by chance that it had an option which makes applications to minimize to this dock instead of task bar!!! And to make more difficult the detection, it only happens with some applications but not with others.
    I hope this info can help anyone facing the problem in the future.
    Thank you all for ideas and BR!
