IE8 window stays on top forcing minimization

September 18, 2010 at 12:38:59
Specs: Windows 7, 2GHZ/3GB
Sometimes IE remains on top after switching to another window. Other times it works correctly. I don't know why. Be clear it doesn't matter how i switch to the other window (which may be another IE or not) the first IE will remain on top.

A previous poster gave up trying to solve this annoying problem.

In a similar vein, Fullscreen sometimes doesn't work. Sometimes if the window is first shrunk. (i.e. restore down button) F11 or fullscreen from the menu works. Other times it won't work at all.

why not open IE, click on tools/internet options/advanced and then reset internet explorer. Obviously an addon or something else is corrupting IE

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

You are not the only one with this issue. If you google for Windows 7 Internet Explorer 8 stealing Focus you will get many hits.
