    Disappearing Apps on Win 10


    I have not been able to find any reference to this problem anywhere, but it is driving me crazy. I can be typing way into any app, or viewing a movie on DVD or anything. Suddenly my app disappears, and I am viewing the desktop. If I nudge my mouse, just a touch, the app comes back, but If I nudge my mouse again, it disappears again.

    I don't think there is anything I am doing that triggers it. It started happening when I "upgraded" to Win 10 from Win 7. My mouse may vibrate and thus move a tad. It seems to happen most when my mouse is not near the center of the mousepad. That is my suspicion.

    I have a Roccat Kone mouse.

    I wonder if your mouse is close to the bottom right of the screen and is activating the show desktop function. You can turn this function off as shown below by unchecking the Use Peek preview box:

    Thanks for the idea. I tried triggering this by waving the mouse all over the bottom right area. Nothing happened. We will see what configuring does.
