    Losing focus


    Hello,

    I have an annoying bug that i could not find an answer for. When i click on de navigation bar in the explorer, First it turns blue what is normal but then it loses his focus somehow. When I open notepad and click inside, the focus switches on and off. When i click on the power off button to select restart, shutdown or sleep, it loses focus on this to so it looks like i pressed esc.
    An other example: when i press 'windows+r' and start typing my focus jumps away and i need to click the textbox again to finish typing.

    Things i tried:
    unplugging keyboard, mouse.
    When I start windows in safe mode the problem is not there.
    installing updates

    winver: version: 1809 build: 17763.504

    :)

  2. Windows loses focus every 3-5 seconds

    This focus issue is making it nearly impossible to type anything continually. Windows loses focus every 3-5 seconds, pausing and not typing what I've typed. I can't live with this- any suggestions?

    Active Window Loses Focus

    Without any mouse action or keyboard action, the currently active window loses focus to another program. This happens about once a day. The newly active window is always the same program. Prior to the last few weeks, I've had no problems with this stealing focus program. I've made no changes to this program since last year!
    The program that loses focus is frequently, but not always, Google Chrome.
    The program the gets focus is always Impact Software Einstime.
    Google Chrome "is up to date" Version 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (64-bit)
    Einstime 4.7.0000
    Windows 10.0.17763
    Dell Studio XPS 435T/9000

    Thanks!

    stealing focus while typing

    Hi Valerie,

    Losing focus on an app can happen if your touchpad is on high sensitivity. There are instances that we are engrossed in our writing to the point that we don't notice that our hands are near the touchpad and if it's set to high sensitivity, it can click on
    another app. To isolate the issue, we suggest that you try to change the sensitivity settings of your laptop to medium or low sensitivity and see if this issue still persists. To do so, please follow these steps:

    • In Cortana search, type Settings.
    • Click on Devices.
    • Click Touchpad.
    • Change the sensitivity level.

    Feel free to post back should you need further assistance.
