    Get stuck in task view with gestures


    When I use gestures (4 finger swipe up) to get to task view and see all applications, I cannot get out of it. Swipe down, clicking on a window, nothing will get me out of that view which renders my computer frozen for about 1 minute until the view closes on its own. My computer is brand new which makes this very frustrating. Any fixes? Or is this a problem with my particular machine?

    :)

    Stuck in Task View

    So i'm running windows 10 and it should be noted that i sue a razer synapse where one button is to go to task view. However it had been working fine for 2 months.

    Very recently my pc would be working fine for a long time, i'll be using task view no problem. Then i'd go to task view and it'd just be stuck there. I can't use the task view button to go back to normal desktop. I can't click on any of the app it's showing
    me that i'm using to go to them. I'm just stuck. I'm not in tablet mode. it's so random. I have to restart my entire pc and lose any of the work i'm doing to fix it. Is there a fix for this?

    Task View

    It's the Task View, not the Task Bar, that is the problem. I should be getting the popup (right clicking on Task View) showing the options for additional Desktops, not the five options for the Task Bar. A 'chat' with MS Solutions said that I should reinstall
    Windows 10 to MAYBE correct this problem. Any suggestions to correct?? Thanks for your interest...I really appreciate it.
    The Task View is the only feature that I may like on 10!!
