    Application windows stay hidden behind others?


    Hello,

    I've been having this issue ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 and I like most of the upgrade but this particular issue is making me want to just go back to 7...

    When I click on icons for other apps in my task bar, they often just stay hidden behind whatever window I have open at that moment. For example, if I'm using Chrome and want to open Word, I click on Word and see that the program is running but no matter what I do, I cannot view the Word window unless I minimize Chrome. It doesn't matter if Chrome is full screen or not. Even if I right click on the Word icon, hover on the screen and click it, still doesn't work it stays under Chrome. Even when I try to switch desktops, I can see that it's open but all I see is Chrome... For some apps, like Skype, the window will eventually show if I click on it repeatedly but obviously it's still very annoying and inconvenient.

    I've been trying to find a solution for this but no luck so far... Any ideas?

    :)

  2. Taskbar hidden behind windows

    Got that. Since you mentioned that the issue doesn't occur when auto-hide is turned off, it seems that it's a normal feature on the computer. We suggest turning off this feature for your preference.

    If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to share them with us here. We'll be happy to assist.

    Thank you! I read the thread you posted, but I am not sure I understand how to fix the issue... What does a "clear install of windows 10" mean?

    I imagine they meant 'clean install' as in new install - fresh.
