    Task bar has 2 selected apps at once. Is this a bug?


    Hello everyone!guest273 here!Now I don't know if this is a bug or a 'unwanted feature', but the issue I'm having is:Usually when I start my day on Windows 10 I open multiple apps and simply select 1 app on the task bar by clicking on it - either if it's a game or Google Chrome or Microsoft word etc. After like 4-6 hours of working with my PC I often have this 'bug' where a 2nd app is also like "ghost selected" and it just shows this half selected app glow and gives the tooltip / name for the program which is annoying.How do I prevent this from happening / fix it without restarting my windows 1

    :)
