  1. WINDOWS KEEP MINIMISING AND CLOSE MY PROGRAMS AND I AM UNABLE TO MAXIMIZE THEM BACK


    I have a big problem with my system.

    First I need to mention that i have three different computers (and a laptop) using geniune Win 10 but only one computer has this type of problem (that ocured after win 10 updates.


    Randomly my programs (browsers, apps, games) are starting to minimize while i work with them but I am unable to maximise windows back. It's like computer closes automatically all programs I work with. The only solution is restart. Sometmies after restart all is fine, sometimes not and i need to restart again.


    I found same topic over the internet on google but nobody was able to give a solution for this.


    1. It is not an device incompatibility issue because in the last year i didn't add any new device to my system

    2. It is not a software issue because i have same programs i had before this trouble started

    3. it is not a virus because i have 1 licenced antivirus working 24h/day, an licenced antimalware program allways on and the router itself has an antivirus security solution implemented in it protecting the network. Also I never install unsecure software and access unsecure sites.


    I tried to reproduce the moment when this error occurs, because it seems to be random. Sometimes is connected to opening windows mediaplayer, other times office outlook, other times microsoft edge, calculator, etc. Seems to be connected only by activating a microsoft service in win 10 but every time a different one and in a different context.


    So please don't tell me it's a device problem or a new software problem. I am pretty sure it is something connected to windows update and connected only to this system I am using. The other ones are not having same problem after updates.

    I really don't want to reinstall windows even you will say there is a way to avoid losing my data.

    I need a hotfix to click and repair this. I can't affrod to de a reinstall. I have 32 TB of data at risk inside this machine and it's a heavy production machine which needs to work hard not to lose hours with system reinstals.


    Please, I need help as soon as possible from someone at Microsoft that is familiar with exactly this problem.

    Thank you in advance!

    :)

    minimise single window keyboard shortcut


    So setpoint with an anywhere mouse has a minimise shortcut option to associate with a button on the mouse, works fine. this is with my wireless anywhere mouse

    but g400 with logitech gaming software, there is no minimise option, and no keyboard shortcut minimises just one window !

    so tilting
    i use my two thumb buttons as minimise and close window, it makes working in windows a lot smoother/faster

    any suggestions on this unable to minimise shortcut option?

    Windows won't maximize

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable to maximize/minimize the programs in Windows 10, we will help you to resolve this issue.

    Kindly let us know with the following information:

    • Is this issue specific to any applications/programs?
    • Were you able to see the maximize, minimize and close icons?
    • Have you tried to perform these using different user account?

    This issue might be due to corrupted/ missing system files.

    I suggest you to run System File Checker and check if it helps:

    Method 1: Run the SFC.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer.

    • Now check for the issue.

    Hope this information is helpful. Kindly update the status of the issue. We will be happy to assist you.
