    Apps suspend when minimized, music stops


    On my desktop, when I run a music app in Windows 10, say Plug radio or Tunein, it stops playing music after a second or two of being minimized. If I maximize, it starts playing again. If I change the volume with the keyboard, and the little pop up window with volume, artist, song info, etc. pops up, it starts playing again, but as soon as it fades away, it stops again.

    I checked under Task Manager, and the .exe file for the app suspends when you minimize it, and starts running again when you maximize it.

    I have a laptop that I also upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1, and it doesn't do this. I can minimize the same apps and they continue to play. When the desktop was Windows 8.1, I didn't have this problem.

    Any ideas why it would do this, and how to fix?

    Thank you.

    Go to settings-> privacy-> background apps -> turn on for apps you need to run in background

    Not it. They are all turned on.
