  1. Games keeps minimizing by themselves


    Recently I keep having this annoying problem, that all games keep randomly minimizing themselves as if I pressed alt-tab and since some of them can't be minimized without freezing, it is very annoying.

    My best guess is that some notification keeps poping up for a fraction of a second, which causes this effect, although I don't see anything. I may be completely wrong of course.


    Things I have already tried:

    • Switched off all notifications under "Notifications and actions" in general and specifically for each program
    • Switched Focus assist to alarms only and activated it for games and times I use PC in
    • Turned live tiles off for whole Start menu
    • Switched Avast permanently to silent mod
    • PC is set to desktop mod and switch to tablet mod is prohibited
    • Just to be sure I checked Windows with SFC, no error found
    • Downloaded latest update
    • Checked whole system with Avast, Spybot and Malwarebytes, no issue found
    • MS Office is not installed on my system.


    What else can cause this unpredictable behavior? As you can see, I already did some googling.


    OS: Windows 10 Home, 64-bit

  3. Windows 10 games minimizes periodically

    Hello,

    To understand the issue better, I would like to ask some questions:

    • Is the issue particular to a game or all games?
    • Do you get any error message?
    • Which build is installed in your computer?
    • Is the issue occurring with Windows Store games?

    I suggest you to update the Graphic card driver by following the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapters.
    • Right click on the driver and select Update Driver Software.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to update the driver.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Thank you.
