  1. Suddenly HOVERING is causing automatic actions in various apps


    I can't think of anything I've changed to my system except for the recent cumulative update. All of a sudden if I hover over certain apps... umm... things happen.

    In VLC the volume automatically rises to 200%. If I hover over the video's timeline it begins advancing through the video.

    If I'm in Firefox or Chrome and I hover over YouTube's audio levels it automatically lowers the volume without me clicking.

    If I'm in system settings (as you might imagine I would be) and I scroll down a page, it scrolls back up by itself.

    Is this some sort of Ease of Access feature that got turned on?

    :)

  2. Taskbar bug: switching to another window -will not appear at the front


    Follow either of these steps to fix the issue with the Active window hiding behind.

    Method 1:
    I suggest you to disable window by hovering over it with the mouse and check if it helps. To do so I suggest you to try the below given steps and check if it helps:

    1. Press Windows key + X key and click on Control Panel.
    2. Select or click Ease of Access.
    3. Click or tap onEase of Access Centre.
    4. Click on Make the Mouse Easier to Use was uncheck Activate Window by hovering over it with the mouse.
    5. Check if issue is resolved.
    Method 2:
    I would suggest you to completely uninstall the touchpad driver and reinstall it. Kindly follow the below given steps.

    1. Press “Windows key + X” and click on “Device Manager”.
    2. In the list of devices, you should see the touchpad drivers.
    3. Right click on the device and then select "Uninstall".
    4. In the uninstall dialog, make sure you select the option to delete the driver package from the system. This causes the driver package installed earlier to be deleted.
    5. In the Action menu of Device manager, select “Scan for Hardware changes” option. This will cause the device driver to be reinstalled. Once the driver is installed, close all windows and restart the computer.
