  1. "Locked" in programs Regedit, Device Manager, CCleaner Can't click away, MUST Alt+Tab


    Hello, I'm running a fresh install of Windows 10 not upgraded, installed to brand new drive. While setting up my PC, it seems there are some programs which "hog focus" in that, if they are open, I am unable to click anywhere but the active window.

    I can freely move around the active window, but I cannot click a Window behind it to switch focus. Similarly, I cannot click anywhere along the Task Bar to switch to a different application. Notably; the programs in the background still react to the position of the mouse buttons will highlight, etc. but clicking does nothing.

    The only solution I've found is to use Alt+Tab to get away from these programs minimizing the programs works too.

    Has anyone encountered something similar? I have used Windows 10 before and haven't experienced this.


    For reference, here is a list of the programs I have encountered the issue in so far:

    • Regedit
    • Device Manager
    • CCleaner

    :)

    Windows 10 random tabbing in everything and alt tab problem

    Hi Donna,

    Yes, it happens on all programs, may it be desktop, windows sign in screen, everywhere.

    I tried the ff. but it doesn't work.

    press shift five times

    press shift for 8 seconds

    uninstalling the laptop keyboard

    I just found out that the TAB key has no function and the following keys (Right Shift, Caps Lock, BackSpace, Num Lock, T, Y, [, ], 4, 8)does its function but keeps on tabbing continuously until I press the keys that functions normally.

    Alt+Backapace is functioning as Alt+Tab but it keeps on tabbing.
