  1. Windows Open Under Active Windows


    If, for example, I click on a file in Explorer, the file opens under the existing window rather than on top as it normally does. This has been happening for several weeks.

    I've learned that it's an issue with Windows 7, but none of the fixes I've found online, which are only for that OS anyway, including tweaking the foreground flash count entry in the registry, have worked.

    Does anyone know how to correct this annoying problem?

    :)

    W10P Digital key how to check if it's legit?

    Hi Michel-TO,

    Open the Setting App

    Go to Update and Security - Activation

    What is reported there under activation?

    If it says you are activated with a digital licence, you are legit, if it says, 'Windows is activated using your Organisation's activation service' then that is a cracked version of Windows 10 . . .

    Well, it would seem that I am the only person here who has this problem.

    I'll try my luck at another forum.
