  1. [ISSUE] Apps defocusing/minimizing randomly.

    So, I've had this problem for a while, either chrome defocuses and I have to click to focus back or either my full-screen game minimizes. I've tried virus scanning, WDefender and malware bytes, many "fixes" like changing settings and stuff, none worked.

    Films & TV app randomly minimizes around every 10-15 minutes


    You might be experiencing this issue because of corrupted files related to the Movies & TV app. Additionally, a background program or process might be causing the Movies & TV app to minimize randomly. To troubleshoot this issue, we recommend that you

    run the troubleshooter for Windows App
    s. This tool finds and fixes common errors with apps on your computer.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you repair or reset the Movies & TV app. This will fix any corruptions related to the app. Here's how:

    • Click Start, and click on the gear icon to open the Settings
    • Click on System, and select Apps & features in the left pane.
    • Look for the Movies & TV app, select it, and click on Advanced options.
    • Click on the Repair or Reset button.

    To rule out any software conflicts, let's perform a clean boot. When you start your computer in a clean boot state, it starts by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This troubleshooting method is designed to isolate if this issue
    is caused by a startup program or service. For steps on how to perform a clean boot, you can refer to the following link:

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    After you have finished troubleshooting, you may refer to the Reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting section to reset the computer to start normally.

    Let us know the results so we can assist you further.

    • Have you made any changes to the computer prior to the issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far to resolve the issue?
    • Have you tried to update the graphics card drivers on your PC?
