I'm using a Lenovo X1 Yoga, bought in August 2016.

It's running Windows 10.

My organization runs email on Exchange.

 

Everything was running fine, when suddenly... about a month ago, 2 problems cropped up:

1. If I have several windows open, and I'm working on one of them, I'm unable to open the other ones from the taskbar. For example, let's say I have 2 word docs, 2 xls's and 3 ppt's open.

I'm working on one of the xls's.

When I hover the mouse over the xls icon in the taskbar, it shows small windows for the 2 xls's open.

When I then hover the mouse over the other xls, it doesn't open and go to full screen.

If on the other hand, I right click, then click maximize, that works --- but that's painful

 

2. On email, when I start typing in an email address, the options show up in a box.

By the time I take the mouse to the email address I need, that box closes down.

I've tried using the arrow keys to scroll down to the email address I need; that works sometimes.

 

These are both very aggravating as you can imagine!

 

Any solutions out there?

 

Thanks.

Here's another observation.

 

When multiple windows are open, this problem occurs all the time and the windows keep "disappearing".

 

When I shut down every window except one, then that one stays on the screen and I can work on it.

Do you have Peek enabled?

I enabled Peek, and the problem appears to have been solved!

Thank you everyone for your efforts, and 'opera' in particular for finding the solution :-)

Hi,

 

I need your help again.

 

I enabled Peek and the problems disappeared for a while.

 

Both problems have come back.

Any suggestions on what I can do would be much appreciated.
