    App Switching Not Working - Selected App Does Not Come To Front


    The problem: I have an issue that occurs when I have a lot of windows open (12-20); when I click the taskbar to switch to an app that is open but not in the front, it sometimes will just disappear behind all other open windows. For example, if I have Chrome open and in the front and want to go to a Word document (or anything else either minimized or behind the front app), I would click on the program in taskbar, the app will flash up - but as soon as I click on the app, it then moves to the back behind other open apps. The same thing happens if I click on the App directly - it will not come to the front. I then have to minimize all other apps to get to the app I want to use. I have tried unchecking Activate Window by hovering over it with the mouse but it was already unchecked. I saw this thread

    Taskbar bug: switching to another window -will not appear at the front

    The issue was raised by mmdali and Christi in that thread (a long time ago), but I saw no resolution.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    front camera lumia 900

    The front face camera on my phone does not work as well (Nokia 1020).

    When in any camera app (Microsoft or Nokia), I use the option to switch over to the front face camera. The screen will either remain black, or the app will close out all together, and go back to the start screen.

    Sometimes I'm able to hear the "clicking" noise of the front face camera physically activating itself, but right afterwards, the app turns off.

    If I force the app to close, and restart the camera app, it continues to remain in the front face camera mode - and has only a frozen black screen; I'm unable to switch out of the front face mode.

    Turning the phone off/on and doing a soft reset does not work. Resetting the camera in the Settings menu does not work either.

    Thanks,

    Eileen
