    build 10074 start menu interfering with games


    this is a clean installing using nvidia 352.64 drivers with nvidia 780 card and intel 3700k with 32gb mem.


    every time I start a game, the start menu open causing the game to go to the desktop.

    I try to get back into the games but the start menu opens again causing the lack of focus on the games.

    this is happening with almost every game.

    its worse if the games are using lower resolutions then the native one.



    only way I can get the problem to go away is to disable the shell experience program and stop it from running. but then notification system dont work along with the start menu.


    microsoft did say there was a issue with games running fullscreen and will be issuing a patch. but I dont know if this problem is related to it or not.

    :)

  2. Window 10 download choice

    Something else emerged, so I will use this opportunity to raise it.

    The game I work on is European Air War. It was running OK on the previous build. I am now using build 10074, and when I launch the game it gets minimised to the taskbar, and the start menu appears. If I am able to bring up the window the start menu sits
    in front of it.

    It is impossible to play a lobbied game at GameRanger. However, this was not an issue until I installed 10074.

    I tried to report this some time ago as an "Enterprise Insider" but recieved no reponse.

    I do not know if this is connected but the "Use the Start menu instead of the Start screen" checkbox does not appear When I view "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" and select the "Start Menu" tab.

    Thanks

  3. Calendar days shifted - Windows 10

    Ok Shrikar, here it goes:

    1. Windows 10 Home Build 10074

    2. With a clean start it says something like error in register in a pop-up message box, then when I click on setup right at the menu it does nothing.

    Regards

    I've experienced this today as well, fortunately the game going full screen seemed to have closed the start menu.

    Hey just registered as I found a trick for it to work, if you go into tablet mode the start menu won't pop up and take control, then when finished gaming just go back into normal mode, works like a treat

    build 10074 start menu interfering with games

    On my system, the games seem to run fine. The problem for me is the Desktop environment and doing such outrageous things as clicking on the Start Button. I have gotten Video Driver error messages from clicking on the Notification Icon, and even opening the Command prompt.

    Yesterday I got three Blue Screens with the system just sitting on the Desktop. I figured that was enough information for Microsoft to deal with and I went back to 8.1 so I can run my games in peace...

    Didn't work here... I get the same error, even when trying to open up Steam.

    Also I'm not sure if I'm missing something or tablet mode is just really weird. When I turn it on, all my windows are gone.

    edit: btw I'm sure this error has to do with the new Xbox App. If you guys haven't tested it yet, just press Win+G in any game to make a small window appear, and you can record your games from there. It's pretty neat, too bad it broke a lot of things...

    For the full screen issue with games, try today's windows update and reboot. Let me know if that solves the issue with full screen games minimizing, or going into window mode.

  12. Uninstalling the ASUS screen saver program fixed the start menu popup issue for me. If your on ASUS try this.
