  1. Programs that aren't maximised always cascade behind maximised windows.


    Hi there,


    In the same issue, whenever I open a window through clicking on its icon on the taskbar, it will also fall behind all maximised windows if it is not maximised itself.


    This began just over a month ago with a new update, and I've finally had enough of it.


    If there is any way to disable this, or return my windows settings to the way they were, please give me a point in the right direction.


    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Windows 10 pinned programs not maximising.

    i have a number of programs pinned to my taskbar. Steam does not maximise whilst others do. I had to reinstall Spotify for it to maximise after showing the same problem. Do i need to reinstall Steam?

    Maximise/Minimising windows is not working.


    Hi all,

    I have a problem with my Win10 laptop and the best way to describe it (i think!), is that the minimise/maximising of windows is not behaving as expected.
    For example: sometimes I am unable to maximise a window properly, it seems to maximise, but not come to the front of the open windows. so if I have a browser open, and try to maximise MsWord, the word window maximises, but sits behind the browser so I then have to minimise the browser.
    ALSO sometimes even this doesn't work as for some reason a window will change its position to off the screen so the only way to maximise it (without ending the program and re-starting), is to hover over the taskbar icon, right click the needed window and hit maximise.

    I find this extremely frustrating as the simplest task (switching between windows) is a massive hassle.

    If anyone has any suggestions of possible fixes or has had the same problem please get in contact! At this point it'd be nice to know i'm not the only person with this issue!

    Cheers,
    Sam

    Taskbar not Maximising Tasks - Windows 10

    I have an issue where certain items in my taskbar are not maximising when opening and are locked in a minimised state on the taskbar. Tried the CCleaner, System Maintenance and SFC suggestions (from the file explorer not responding posts) and the unpinning
    and disabling snap suggestions (on taskbar items not maximising posts for older versions of Windows) with no luck. This was actually a problem I had a while back near release of Windows 10, but then I had Edge and the actual startup menu not responding either.
    Got to the point where I got sick of tinkering and reinstalled Windows 10 - in hindsight I should have probably reverted to Windows 7. It worked for a while, but file explorer stopped working again a few days ago and today my EA Origin has stopped maximising. It's
    weird as it appears in QuickView (by hovering over the File Explorer/Origin icon in the toolbar), but it just won't maximize - doesn't respond at all.

    Any suggestions as to what else I can try would be greatly appreciated before more items stop maximising and I'm stuck with reinstalling Windows for another time. Thank you!
