  1. windows 10 keeps minimizing my games to desktop


    This just happens recently. If I play a game at Fullscreen, it minimize / alt tab to desktop. If I'm on windowed mode, I see flickering color change on the top of the tab color. I tried solutions like disabling Xbox game bar and rolled back graphics driver.

    games keep minimizing to taskbar

    Do you have a key on your keyboard like i circled in the pics? If yes, point at any file on your desktop and tap it, you'll see that right click menu popup. Any chance you are bumping that key?
