  3. Windows 10 minimizing any games automatically at random times

    OT- Windows 10 minimize problem

    Hi,

    When I downloaded windows ten, games that were full screen would always be minimized somewhat randomly. I was able to fix the problem for some of the games by setting them to windowed border less. But some of the older games do not have that option and whenever
    I try to play them, they minimize every 45 seconds- two minutes. I hope this is solvable. I believe this has to do with the task manager.

    P.S. I tried to enter the command key "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" as was suggested on another page that seemed to be similar to my problem, but it has not helped.

    Thanks!

    Windows 10 minimizing any games automatically at random times

    I was able to catch a slow motion video of my game minimizing at the specific time it does, every hour at minute 58, and was able to somewhat see what was opening up. It was Microsoft Office. Hard to make out but could clearly see Microsoft and Office
    in the box that popped up. I uninstalled Office and so far I have had no more minimizing. Games or any applications. Hope this helps.
