    Hovering mouse shows a window


    New user here.

    I got a few problems regarding from my laptop. Apparently, I upgraded my Windows 7 to windows 10 and when I hover my cursor to the topmost right portion of the screen, a window pop up in a second.

    This popup distracts me when I work, and I'll be grateful if there is a way to get rid of it.

    I don't know much about this window, but it may be related to the problem above also. If it is, maybe there is a way to disable this.

    Maybe disable "win+P" in the registry editor?

    Appears to be some feature in Google Chrome (which I don't use). It's not Win 10 per se.
    What is this "incognito window" thing on Google Chrome? | Yahoo Answers

    You could:
    -look for an option to disable it (if any)
    -wait for someone familiar with Chrome to comment
    -research it

    Close Chrome, and see if either still appear to confirm both are Chrome related.

    Sorry can't help more.

    Thanks for replying.

    Don't fret, I knew what incognito in Chrome is. This is not what you pay attention to. The problem is what in the top left is.
    I researched what it is for days and I, and got no luck. But I knew that Google Chrome is per se not the problem because minimizing the window keeps showing up when I perform the same action before.

    I will show you the reference again when I'm at the desktop.

    I knew that the issue is automatically from the system itself, not from the program that I run when I start up.

    I'd say that's from some program you have installed.

    You can check what it is by installing Winspy++

    - drag the crosshair finder tool over that window and see what it says.

    That tool tracked me on what the problem is.

    Apparently, this program is from System Explorer, a task manager application that I downloaded.
    I don't think that It's really malware, and maybe I'll find a way to disable it.

    Thank you for giving me a clue for finding a true answer. Maybe that tool will put me to good use in the future.
