I notice from time to time, that the apps I have on the task bar freeze or are dead. I overcome the situation by CTRL+ALT+DEL. At this point, no need to open Task Manager. I then hit "cancel" & the machine goes back to normal. But it will come back to that situation once again & I go through the same process. It is a little annoying & wonder what setting(s) could overcome this glitch?
It happens to be a former Toshiba Satellite that was a Windows 7 Pro. I took advantage of the free upgrade & did so, because of the option of going back if not satisfied. I must say that Windows 10 seems to be faster & I am still getting accustomed to it.
I will also add that the desktop doesn't seem to be affected. I will pay attention to other details, as it might be the browser might be affected when opened? Don't know for sure.
Thanks ahead of time.
