  1. Weird focus moving behavior in windows 10 dialogs and even Edge


    I began having this issue recently and may even be in connection to updates done on march 12.


    here it is on start menu - video from my phone (youtube)


    and here it is on a settings menu


    I cannot type in Edge's address bar.. focus switches to the bookmark star whenever I click in the address bar


    Same thing happens in cortana search.. focus switched to microphone.


    If I right-click on the start menu.. that menu works perfectly


    So.. I tried to solve this with my existing install of windows by trying the following:


    - cold reboot (of course)

    - tried different mouse

    - tried different keyboard

    - tried different display settings (was using 150% display.. 1440p display with Nvidia 1080ti card.

    - ran Intel's diags on my Intel SSD boot drive

    - I tried a recovery to March 12's image (taken during updates automatically it seems) and was told that failed.

    - I then tried to use settings to uninstall individual updates.. but this focus issue prevented that. until that moment I had thought this was limited to the start menu


    In my old install of windows (I did end up doing a reset later) , I had chrome installed and steam and those apps worked well.. no focus issues. So it did not seem hardware related to me. I had gotten few BSODs with trying to have batch video conversions in the background while having a steam game up.. but they were few and far between... I figured the system was churning a lot of data over days and days.. and something leaked memory somewhere.


    In any case, I finally resorted to do a Windows 10 reset of my OS.. with keeping my data files. It would mean a lot of work cleaning up after that but I figured.. why not.. surely it will work.


    It did not work.


    It is worse now, if anything. I'm not sure what kind of work-around I can do to get Chrome installed. My next thing wil be to check for BIOS updates on my mobo and maybe reset everything in BIOS. I will likely try SAFE MODE too..


    Any help is appreciated

    :)

  2. Edge - new tab focus behavior

    Is there a way to let Edge focus on the address bar once I open a new tab?

    I experience the following behavior:

    1. Open Edge
    2. Ctrl + t (new tab)
    3. Type e.g. www.myfavouriteaddress.com

    Issue: The typing is ignored since the focus is not on the address bar.

    Unfortunately I haven't found anything. Microsoft didn't answer on that.

    I know I work around it like that, but I'm looking for a setting which let me change the default Ctrl + t behavior:

    1. Open Edge
    2. Ctrl + t (new tab)
    3. Ctrl + l (focus on address bar)
    4. Type e.g. www.myfavouriteaddress.com

    Environment

    • Microsoft Edge 38.14393.2068.0
    • Windows 10 Enterprise

  3. File Copy or Move Focus for Dialog Box


    I've noticed a very annoying aspect of Windows 10. When I copy or move a file and there is a conflict, the dialog box normally doesn't take focus, it just sits on the task bar. OK, it is flashing, but I often miss it.

    Is there a fix?
