  1. More than one program maximizing.


    Im new to Windows 10. Lets say I have 2 programs open. Im at the desktop, Why is it when I choose one of them from the task bar, the other one also maximizes behind it? Instead of the program I chose popping up with the desktop in the background, the program I chose pops up along with the other one I have minimized, but its behind the one I opened. So both are now maximized with the second program behind the one I chose to maximize. This is really irritating as Im constantly having to use the Show Desktop button to get back instead of just minimizing one program.

    :)

  2. Windows won't maximize

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable to maximize/minimize the programs in Windows 10, we will help you to resolve this issue.

    Kindly let us know with the following information:

    • Is this issue specific to any applications/programs?
    • Were you able to see the maximize, minimize and close icons?
    • Have you tried to perform these using different user account?

    This issue might be due to corrupted/ missing system files.

    I suggest you to run System File Checker and check if it helps:

    Method 1: Run the SFC.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer.

    • Now check for the issue.

    Hope this information is helpful. Kindly update the status of the issue. We will be happy to assist you.

  3. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.
