  1. Games minimizing at random


    Hello.


    I have an issue that while playing any game in full screen it minimizes without crashing (most of the time). I have seen several posts in various places about this after googling it but i have not found a solution to the problem. Most of them suggest disabling an update thing for Office but at this point i have not installed office yet. The computer i am using is a fresh build with Windows 10 pro and NOD 32 antivirus installed.


    The problem started suddenly without me making any changes to my system. I was happily playing one day and the next this happens. I tried to disable notifications and also set my antivirus to game mode. I also tried to play with game mode for windows on and off with no results. I also tried a virus scan with no threats found. I even tried to reformat the drive and start fresh but it did not help. The issue happens on Steam and non steam games and i notice a window popping up from time to time in my taskbar that i think is responsible for stealing the focus of my games but it happens so fast that i cannot see what it is.


    I hope someone will help as this is getting infuriating and i don't have the same issue on my laptop that is also windows 10 pro

    :)

  4. Games minimizing at random

    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.
