    Explorer window not active for file selection


    Hi.

    I have a videos folder. I am checking and deleting unwanted videos by opening each for few seconds and deleting ones I don't like.

    Problem is that when I close the player and want to delete the video, the explorer window is no more active. So I have to click on the explorer to make it active each time and then press delete.

    Few minutes back all was fine; whenever I closed the player, the explorer window was automatically active and I just pressed delete to delete the video.

    I do remember opening mouse settings for something but don't remember changing any setting. Please advise how I can revert to my old setting.

    Thanks for help.

    See screenshots of both cases.
