  1. Task Switcher randomly gets stuck cycling windows


    Good morning!

    I am having an issue with the Task Switcher (see image below) activating on its own. It then begins to cycle through the open tasks very rapidly. When this happens I am unable to actually select any of the tasks, nor can I close them out. Windows is essentially frozen at this point and I have to restart.

    A few things to note:


    • I am running Windows 10 Pro.
    • This happens randomly, sometimes weeks between an incident.
    • Sometimes it happens while I am not even working at the computer. I've noticed it after returning to my desk.

    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  2. Windows Spotlight Not Working

    What are you talking about? This is definitely solvable -- we have literally tens of hundreds of Windows 10 machines and they are all cycling spotlight pictures randomly and daily.

    When did yours get stuck?

  3. Help me get the most of my N900

    hmm. if tapping the phone gives you access to the maps menu, is there the task switcher icon in the top left?



    if there is, just tap it once to access task switcher. then you can either tap the task switcher icon again to get to the menu and open the app from there, or tap an empty spot to get to the desktop to open your app.
