  1. Windows 10 - Mouse clicking and opening applications in the taskbar on its own


    My mouse clicks down on applications pinned in the taskbar or either that are there because the application is open. Before I know it, it has taken over my computer and opened several windows. I can only stop it by trying to quickly close everything, which is difficult, or just do a hard shutdown, pressing the power button.

    I have had WINDOWS 10 reinstalled, but the problem has returned.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. How to OPEN Programs in Taskbar Preview WITHOUT Clicking ??

    @Triliuner I'm sorry to hear it's not as simple as that.

    When you have multiple windows opened from a single application e.g. 2 separate windows from Chrome, do they show up as previews when you hover over Chrome's icon in the taskbar, or as a list? Just asking to clarify that, they are at least showing as previews. If not, this should help: Change Taskbar Thumbnail Threshold to Show List in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials

    As for the different windows not showing when you hover your mouse over a preview, maybe it has something to do with the delay, see here: Change Delay Time to Show Taskbar Thumbnails in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials (restoring the default value)

    I hope that helps, if not, maybe others can suggest some other things to try..

  4. Windows 10 - Mouse clicking and opening applications in the taskbar on its own

    mouse right click will not open my file explorer in taskbar

    Hello Carl,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We regret the inconvenience caused to you. We will assist you to resolve this issue.

    • What happens when you left clicking?
    • When you say right click, do you actually mean left click?
    • Which all troubleshooting steps have you already tried to resolve this issue?

    Left clicking with mouse will open File explorer or any other programs. Whereas right click will give you context menu.

    I suggest you to right-click on the File Explorer
    on the task bar and select Unpin from Taskbar. Now in the search bar type
    File Explorer and right click on it and select Pin it to Taskbar
    and check if it helps.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.
