When I try to open a 2nd window or a 2nd app, like my calculator, it will not stay on top. I have to minimize my browser or whatever I have open to see the calculator. 

If I open settings, it will not stay on top or if If I open notifications, I have to hold down my mouse button to be able to click something in it..or it closes right away.   My password box would not stay open either, however since deleting it and using TrueKey it seems to stay open more often.  

I hope I am explaining myself right.  

I have a 2 yr old VAIO, they sent me the windows 10 upgrade and its 64 bits. 6 gigs of ram and 600 gigs 

Is there a solution? 

I read about a few apps that may help, but worry about them being bloated with crap that pops up all over the place..

I do appreciate anyone's time they can give me.....Tara

No, all of them go behind whatever window I have opened first.  I have a calculator app that will not stay on top at all. But other things I open will not either. Not settings, not the life at a glance, not the Action Center, or when I open up Publisher to copy and paste a recipe say to Publisher it goes behind whatever window I have open, and even when I am using Chrome.

I give you few troubleshooting steps follow them one at time hopefully one of my troubleshooting tip will resolve the issue.
 
 
Step 1: 
 
Uninstall all third-party antivirus and firewall programs please don't disable them as that wont resolve the issue if its cause by one of these programs.
 
 
Step 2:


Clean Boot
If the error is caused by a current running process, restart your Windows system using the clean boot method will allow you to troubleshoot if a current service or process is causing the error to appear.
With a clean boot only the necessary services and process that are required to operate Windows are started when you boot your computer.
Follow these steps:

  • Start Windows
  • Open Run. Windows 8 users can press the Windows key and R Key to open Run.
  • Type msconfig and press Enter
  • Go to General tab > check Selective Startup option
  • Uncheck the Load startup items check box
  • Go to Services tab
  • Check Hide all Microsoft services check box from the bottom left corner of the window
  • Click Disable all
  • Click OK
  • Restart Windows

To reset these changes and start your Windows normally, follow the same steps:

  • Go to the General tab
  • Check the Normal Startup option
  • Click OK
  • Restart

 

 

 

Step 3:
