    The last few days I’ve seen this problem I didn’t have before. Could be related to Windows 10 21H2 september cummulative (or not).

    Sometimes I can’t switch to another window than the active one anymore. Using alt-tab or clicking on taskbar. I must close ALL applications to fix the problem. Until it starts again.

    It looks like it has something to do with z-ordering… but it’s not my job to debug the window manager. Switching between windows seems like a basic feature of a multitasking OS. This has been very frustrating this week.

    No errors reported by SFC. Latest NVIDIA driver for my gfx card.

    I’m just sharing this in case someone goes “Me too!” but I doubt it. The problem is probably too system-specific.
