    Why is my Windows 10 system behaving oddly?

    My Windows 10 machine is playing up and do really weird things:
    * Start menu intermittently pops up
    * Application enters and exits full screen
    * Mouse cursor intermittently shows up in full screen mode

    Thank you in advance.

    Do you have a different keyboard and mouse to try out? Sounds like you might have a sticky key.

    It's a laptop and nope it's not sticky key issues. I'm not even touching the mouse or keyboard and this happened all of the sudden ... I've just formatted my computer. I just hope it fixes this problem. Really, really strange!!

    Hi Slee,

    You might want to try downloading "Driver Booster 3" and let it update all of your drivers. It may not fix it but updated drivers are always good to have. I know I've certainly had my fair share of driver-related issues.

    It still sounds like a stuck key. If liquid was ever spilled on the keyboard or it may just be wearing out, it would cause this behavior.
