Minimize or close (exit) window, window stays on screen

Q: Minimize or close (exit) window, window stays on screen

After about 10 minutes of being booted up, my computer acts very strange:

If I have a window open - any window (i.e., any application), and I click on the X (upper-right-hand corner) to exit the application, the application ends, but the display does not go away. In other words, the application has in fact ended, but the window stays on the screen.

Similarly, if I merely minimize the application, the display stays on the screen, even though in fact the application has been minimized.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP3

I've run everything, including combofix

Preferred Solution: Minimize or close (exit) window, window stays on screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Minimize or close (exit) window, window stays on screen

Hello hepplewhite212,

Could you please give me just a tad more info please? When did this start? And, do you happen to use Firefox? I see you ran ComboFix, but it looks like this started before you did so I'd like to rule that out for sure as well.

Excel 2007 has those 3 icons next to the question mark in a circle but my Word 2007 does not...Word 2007 has the circled question mark but no 3 icons for each document file opened...ugh!

I am not referring to the top ones for the Word program, they are there, but for" Document 1" the blank page, or then any document file you open.

Now every document file I open gets its own window instead of a tabbed window and I strongly prefer the latter.

Then when I close the last remaining document file, the Word program itself automatically closes, which I also hate.

Basically, I want Word 2007 to have and use "minimize, restore & close window" icons like Excel 2007 does for each open document. Not new windows for each.

Maybe I goofed somewhere and made Word this way...

well, I think some files are lost after I improperly shut down the laptop by hold down the power button. So when I start up computer, it stays at Window XP welcome screen, the bar keeps moving continuously, but it goes nowhere. It's a Toshiba Satellite and it comes with a recovery disc, but after it finish loading the disc, nothing happens but black screen and a mouse pointer. I also tried to reinstall everything from that recovery disc but can't...(also tried to hold down C key when laptop is powering up to reformat). When I try to go to safe mode, it shows blue screen then restart again after it stops loading the file. so.... anyone got any other ideas? .. it always stays at the welcome screen.. .. so i can't even login..

So yesterday, I was on my Dell computer and when I go to click the orange X to exit or "-" to minimize the internet window, the window stopps running because the little internet tab on the bottom across that blue bar goes away but the screen display stays up and it is frozen, the computer itself isn't frozen because you can click the lower left "Start" button and open another window and it goes right to the homepage just fine. It is almost like the background desktop, without the icons and you can't left click. I didn't know what to do so I panicked and hit the "Q" and restarted it but the problem stays. It doesn't seem to run any slower or anything like that but I did notice a pop-up came up that said Adobe ShockPlayer or ShockWave or something like that that I could either "download now" or "remind me later" it looked a little phony and I just clicked remind me later. It only does this on one of the users for the initial sign in for Windows.

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

I thank you for your time.

Hi there,
We are developing an application integration between Oracle EBS 12.2 and Cybersource(Payment Processing Tokenization System).  So from our EBS 12.2 front end jsp, we are opening a window for users to add their credit card. Newly opened window is being
redirected to Cyversource which is PCI compliant site. User will enter their credit card and submit the page. On successfull submission, cybersource will send accepted response and say that your card is accepted. Now, we want to close this window and have
the user go back to front end Page.

Above functionality is working fine in Firefox and Chrome but it does not work in IE.  Here is the javascript code which we are running in pop up page:

Hi all!
I am new to the forum, just registered and I have a very weird question.

Do you know how sometimes after you installed a new software program, - you open it, work with it whatever and then on exit there is a pop-up window asking you to exit or to minimize or it may ask you something else.
Not all programs do that. Anyway on that pop-up window there is usually a box - you can put tick in it if you don't want to see that pop-up window ever again and in my case I did that.
Now who can tell me how to get this pop-up window back on exit?
I tried re-installing the program and it did not help. In fact the re-installed program somehow remembered all my settings from previous setup.
Anyone can help me with that please?

Just want to add.
The program is called Synkron. On exit it asks you to exit or to minimize. If you choose exit it will always exit completely, if you choose minimize - it will go to taskbar when you hit a cross and that's what I desperately need but I chosen exit by mistake and now I never get to see the pop-up window again. There is nothing in the options to change that. Re-installation will not help.
I know there the way to change that. Hope someone knows the answer.

I have numerous batch files that open Microsoft Access database forms with specific macros for each. These are called from a command button inside our CAD software. All the batch files work fine. However, some people are running these on dual monitor systems. When the run the batch file via a command button, it opens the Access form correctly but displays the CMD window. Is it possible open the CMD window minimized (but not the Access form).

No biggie here, but just an inquiry ? keeps the screen a bit less cluttered?


A:[SOLVED] Minimize CMD window

I was looking up on this and it seems the easiest way is to run it from another batch file.

Link the command button to a different batch file and include in that batch file something to this effect

start "" /min batch.bat
where batch.bat is the name of the batch file you want to call. I have tested it and it works well, if you need any clarity just ask.

I know by using
Windows + down arrow, the current application window can be restored / minimized, which I learned from
But this reduces a maximized windows first before minimizing it, and later when I switch to the window again, I need to press
Windows + up arrow to maximize it, which is not handy enough.
So is there any key combination to minimize the window
at once?

This is most annoying! It seems to be happening more often. I have not been able to figure out what is triggering this. I have 2 monitors and thought that moving between the 2 somehow triggered it or touching a boarder. When I have tried to recreate of course nothing happens. Has anyone experienced this?

My pc is generally running well but recently I discovered a problem. Normally I don't play games but I installed pro evolution soccer 2012, whenever I play it it happens. Simply after 3 or 4 minutes the game window minimizes, and returns to windows. I can then select the game from apps tab and the window maximizes again and it's allright.
Also when I type this post every couple of minutes some system process runs and then rapidly closes, I can't notice what it is, but it causes the system to switch to another app for just a fraction of sec, and sometimes it causes me to loose letters that I write.

I assume it's some kind of malmware or something, that initialises every fixed period of time, causing the game window to minimize and switch to this weird software's window, which then closes instantly and I can return to whatever I was doing before.

I hope you can help me to track and remove it.

Starting to convert from XP to 7 and want to keep as much of the XP style as possible. Already changed 7 to the classic format. If I minimize a Window, how can I get it to become a rectangular bar in the bottom task bar like in XP? I could have 4 or 5 of these bars down there and maximize them with one click in XP. Now I see in 7 that they are all in one single button on the bottom left so I have to click on the button, then click again on the Window I want. And I never know what is running unless I click that button. Starting to dislike 7. ARRGGH!

A:How can I minimize a Window to the bottom Taskbar separately?

That's the way it is in 7. If you had not tampered with the system, you would see all windows open by just hovering over the icon in the taskbar and you can open that window by clicking right there.

But you can get someting similar to XP if you make this setting.

Okay, so I downloaded a call of duty 4 single player demo and tried installing it. The setup was taking a while, and when it finally loaded up I proceeded with the further installation process. For some reason, something in the installation went wrong so I cancelled it. Since then everytime I exit a window in my computer(only windows that go into my documents, my computer, other local folders etc.) windows explorer stops responding and then restarts. This is very annoying as it freezes for about 10 seconds and then explorer comes back on. Other programs are fine when I exit them, its only when I use something related to explorer. Can somebody help? Is There a way to reinstall explorer or something? Help would be very much appreciated.

by the way, this is where i got the file:

I have a Lenovo N580 laptop. Last week, I had to do a factory reset (with help from Lenovo Tech Support) because of compatibility problems with new software from my employer and windows 8.1 which is actually worse than windows 8. The compatibility problems caused my screen to go black. When booting, the Lenovo logo appeared and I had a cursor, but nothing else accept a black screen. I tried suggestions found here and the Lenovo help forum, but none worked and the factory reset was the last resort. Now I am back to using Windows 8 (this was actually the second factory reset due to other problems caused by win 8.1).

Anyway, everything is working (for now) and I also have Classic Shell installed. HOWEVER, before this second factory reset, when I had multiple windows open, aero peek worked fine. Now, it doesn't. I followed earlier suggestions of right clicking the taskbar, then clicking Properties, but the box for "Use Peek ..." is dimmed (grayed out) so I cannot check it to enable aero peek.

I got used to this feature in Win 7 and was glad to see it in Win 8, but it is the only feature about Win 8 and 8.1 that I like. Thanks for your help.

I am using Windows Internet Explorer XP - Version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803_2158.

Recently I've noticed that I cannot view in full screen anymore. Let me explain. I created a website that lets a user enter their name and social # and then choose a test in 1 of 3 languages. Once you choose a language, a new browser window opens and the test/information is displayed in this new window.

Since end of last year, it worked correctly. A new browser window would open and it would be in full screen mode. You could NOT see the very top of the page - where it gives you the page title, and the options to close the window, or minimize/expand it.

Now, all of a sudden, it displays all that information - title, close option etc. Does anyone know why this is? And how I can put it back to being full screen?

FYI - I think this may have something to do with a service pack upgrade within the last couple weeks but am not positive. Also, I know that lots of people were having issues with the Service Pack 2 and all the bugs.

Can anyone shed any light on this issue and what I can do to fix it?

So I just got my x1 extreme gen 2 the other day (the 1080p panel), and on brightnesses 30% or lower, I ALWAYS notice my screen dim or adjust brightness whenever I use another task. For example, switching between a browser tab on chrome, my screen will dim or go brighter depending on the web page. When I minimize a window, the screen will decide to dim a little bit. Another example is whenever there's a prompt to open a program, after I hit yes (or no), the screen brightness adjustment after the transition becomes very very apparent.. It's VERY frustrating and I haven't found a fix for it yet. The only option I have to adjust display in the power settings are "turn display off after". I also have no option for adaptive brightness, so at this point im wondering what's causing this issue when this device itself is brand new. I am on windows 10 home edition.

This is a weird problem: in outlook 2013, I click New Email and the new email window opens on top but somewhat slowly and the says (for just a second or two) Not Responding, then it is underneath the main outlook window. I click on the new email form to get it on top and start typing the address and then click on the address I want and it goes through the same procedure, ending with the new email underneath the outlook window. I click on it to bring it on top and from then on it is more or less normal, occasionally giving me the Not Responding message on the top bar.
Very annoying as it takes about 3 seconds each time it starts doing its Not-Responding-Underneath thing.

Because the result is that my Windows/Font window is stuck on the screen. I can't close it, or minimize it or do anything with it. The other windows that I had previously minimized down to the bottom bar are stuck, too. I can't shut the computer down properly, or reboot properly. Here's what I was doing when this happened. I had downloaded the new font folder to C:\Windows\Temp. To get this folder to Windows\Font I dragged it from Windows\Temp to Windows\Font. When I let up off the mouse button, a one inch vertical line appeared there and everything froze. I can access all the programs that are on the desktop, and I was able to get online to contact you. But other than that it's froze-up. My husband said hit the Escape button, but I don't want to try anything until I hear from you. Besides, I don't really know what the Escape button does. THANX!

I opened up a new window (Control Panel > Windows update) and cannot get the window to close. I can open other windows (for internet, etc), but the window I brought up for the windows update will not close. I tried bringing up that window again and now I have two of the same window that will not close. I have tried restarting my laptop but it is still there... help!

I can'y find this answer so I am falling back on the best forum ever...this one.

During Flash playback I will normally watch in "full screen" works great. In the last months more and more videos are playing with the "Press ESC to exit full screen mode" message always displayed. Now it's happening on YouTube. This is the last straw. I can't take it. It does not disappear like it's supposed to.

I have tried the Flash Player settings manager and adjusted every setting to see if this is the problem. No help. I think it may be the hosting site but I don't know. Some YouTube videos work like normal and some don't. This happens on other sites too. Have you had this problem and fixed it? Do you know how to fix it. Please help me out here. I have searched the net and no solutions exist that I can find.

I found an article on "issues" for Flash full screen. They said to update drivers. I updated to 191.07 (latest Nvidia driver) No help.

Tried IE8 and the latest flash plugin (for both IE and Chrome) No help.

Please....this is killing me.

A:Flash player "ESC to exit full screen" stays

I found out on my own how to fix this if anyone has the same problem. It's in the settings manager for flash player (the on line one) and it has to do with the site being able to store stuff on your computer.

Folks (again),

Recently downloaded the latest XP update, version 3 I think.

Now, whenever I turn the computer on and after it's loaded the software etc. and is ready to go, I get the small popup message in the centre of the screen 'windows is trying to close the webpage continue/cancel?' or something like that. Never had this before and I would like to know what it is and how to get rid.

Many thanks,

Hi .What version of java are you running?From what I see...appears to be some sort of scripting problem (too deep for me to understand/analyze).My WAG would be to check all startup entries and see if any relate to webpages, using AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx Look at the Logon tab only.Louis
