    Games or any full screen program minimize to desktop randomly


    Every five minutes or so my full screen programs minimize to the desktop while the mouse is idle(when I'm using a controller or watching a movie), and i believe the culprit is an application that opens and closes before I can see it. I've scoured the event viewer, and have found nothing. Is there a way to figure out what application is opening? Perhaps it's a windows feature trying to open and close? I've done a lot of research and it seems that solutions that have worked for other is not working for me. Any help at all would be appreciated!

    I've seen this on my machine as well with Fallout 4. Randomly minimizes the game for no apparent reason. I have also scoured the logs without success. Can't find any reason for it... Happens even when I'm not touching the keyboard (no accidental Windows key hits)

    [Update] I believe it's only happening with fullscreened programs, as I played games for a number of hours in borderless window, and windowed mode using a controller.

    I concur, only occurs in Full screen mode. It's almost as if the lockout to keep it in Fullscreen Mode is disengaged somehow, and any sort of normal notification pop up, etc. will make it pop out of Fullscreen and minimize. Happens with Fallout4 and Doom 2016. Very weird, and very annoying...
