After Effects app window keeps jumping to the front

Hello,

 

Something weird is happening to my app on Windows 10. I can't find any solution online. 

I use Ae everyday but recently it will just randomly jump infront of any other app i'm using - this isn't autosave as it doesn't run the save. 

 

I have Ae on one monitor and plugins and effects taking up a 3rd of a second monitor. I will be using Illustrator (for example) then all of a sudden, Ae will remind me that it's still here and jump infront of everything but my machine will still think Illustrator is my selected app so will still sit below some of the plugin panels until I click on it multiple times to bring it back to the front.

 

It's so frustrating and is distrupting my workflow. Could it be a plugin that's causing this?

Hey MarkG_Jaywing,

 

That's really weird!

Would it be possible for your to share a screen recording of this behavior?

Also, can you please share your system details?

 

Thanks,

Rameez

Unfortunately it's pretty hard to capture as it doesn't seem to be triggered by anything in particular.
