  1. Explorer.exe Stealing Focus and Alt Tabbing me out of games randomly


    i've had this problem with some games, but now its happening more than ever, i tried everything and someone told me to install focus logger, and test it out to see what program steals focus when it minimizes the game, and it Said Explorer.exe i thought it was an error cause i cant delete explorer, tried it 5 times and it always said the same thing, i searched google for it and a forum on the microsoft site just had bunch of people talking about the problem and not actually trying to fix it, is there anything i can do to fix it, maybe downgrade windows version while still having all my stuff in it, or a workaround, ANYTHING PLEASE

  2. Weird alt-tab out of fullscreen games.

    Hi Simon,

    The multitasking capability of a game depends on the total memory of your computer. If you have large amounts of RAM on your computer, it can multitask heavy programs easily like high-end games. To ensure that we can provide the appropriate resolution
    for your concerns with the alt-tab function, we’d like to ask you a few questions:

    • What were the recent changes made on your computer before you experienced this issue?
    • When did the issue start?
    • Have you pressed the alt-tab key during you play Rainbow Six Siege? Or it just happen without pressing it?
    • Does the automatic ALT-TAB behavior happens on other games?
    • Do you have any other programs running on your computer while playing?
    • What is the anti-virus program you're using?
    • What is your device or system specifications? To know, follow these steps:
      1. Press Windows + S and type
        About your PC
        .
      2. Send us the information listed under Device specifications.

    Moving forward, if you're multitasking while playing, we recommend that you play this game only without doing other tasks. Pressing ALT-TAB or performing a multitasking interferes with the performance of your video card, especially if you're running a heavy
    game like Rainbow Six Siege. It will generate screen viewing issues like intermittently switching your game screen between your desktop environment.

    For now, restart your game and do not press ALT+TAB while playing. This will allow your video card to dedicate its graphics performance on the game only instead of your desktop environment.

    If you would like me to provide additional advice, simply respond to this thread. I will get notified and I’ll reply to you as soon as I can.

  3. alt + tab not working

    Alt+Tab only works if there is something in the background to switch to. If there is nothing to switch to (the game that has focus is the only thing running), the command isn't executed.

    My windows 10 keeps alt tabing me out of games

    Hi,

    In order for us to find out what's causing your computer to change windows randomly, we would like to gather more information.

    • Does the issue only occur when playing/opening certain apps?
    • Is it alt tabbing? Or the window just minimizes? If it is alt tabbing, you should see the overview of the tabs/windows/apps opened shortly.
    • What is the current build and version of your Windows 10? You may check it by following these steps: Press
      Windows key + R, type "winver" and hit
      Enter
      .

    Regards.
