    Program moves to background automatically


    Hey, so I have had this problem from the start. It's a new computer, no upgrades. When I am in a program, Windows will automatically move that program to the background.
    It happens in different ways;
    --it's like an automatic alt-tab program switch
    --program is minimized so desktop comes up or
    --the program stays up but control is lost (essentially the program is moved to the background).
    It is not me, I will be typing and poof, I'm typing in another program or I get dings meaning you can't do that. It's not a program I'm using, it happens with every program. Firefox, mail, games (especially annoying) and even the calculator. Any ideas?

    ps oh and it's seems random. It doesn't happen at a certain time of day or after a prolonged period of use. Sometimes its multiple times an hour and sometimes it won't happen that day.

    :)

  2. How do I post outlook mail shortcut on my desktop?

    Hello Clive

    If you know how to find it in the Start Menu then simply click and hold, then move it to your desktop. Be sure to first close or minimize all programs so you can see your desktop background.

    A link will then automatically be created Program moves to background automatically ;)

    There's no native Windows function that can do this. You might be able to find animated-wallpaper programs with a web search.

    Win+DownArrowKey is a key stroke shortcut to Minimize to the taskbar...
    Any chance your accidentally hitting this key combo (for like Ctl+Downkey is keycombo shortcut for "End")
