    I guess no one else has this issue then???
    I do. I have never had DisplayFusion and I'm using a single monitor and this issue is driving me bonkers.

    It seems to hold certain apps that were opened in recent history in a TSR type mode, and it keeps opening them over and over. Actually, what I think is happening is that they were never truly/fully closed to begin with -- there's likely some process that isn't readily recognizable for us to manually close ourselves, so it sits there waiting for the OS to wake it up and when it does.. bam, its parent app reappears in Task Manager.

    It doesn't seem to matter how much registry cleaning, rebooting or shutting down of every process imaginable, they keep coming back to life! It's so annoying to see and it's consuming resources unnecessarily!

    I wonder whether there's some kind of hidden, scheduled task that W10 is running which keeps apps' associated process(es) active for a given period of time since the app was last run.

    A lot of us had this problem.
    MS admitted problem in last insider build:

    Known issues for PC
    Apps such as Store, Photos, and People may launch on their own after your PC has been inactive for a period of time. To stop these apps from launching on their own, un-maximize the app before closing it.

    Same Issue here!!!


    I never had Display Fusion! Every fix assumes it's a startup/msconfig issue but it's not at startup! It's randomly throughout the session! I feel your pain QUOTE=IT Hertz;773498

    Same for me, with the Settings window... I have Display Fusion also


    Me too, and I have DisplayFusion. It randomly opens windows settings. The window was maximized, so I'm testing to see if it comes up after 'un' maximizing it. So far, so good.

    Many had similar problems in 14971. I had first Edge do that and News pop up. Edge stopped by itself but News I had to uninstall.

    So, I un-maximized the settings window, then closed it, and it hasn't reappeared in 2 days.

White window frames around every window.
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
